Every time I see these pics I'm struck by the urge to bring over a bicycle pump...

Very cool pictures indeed!!!

It blows my mind to think about how many thousands of these would be on the road today if GM had just stuck it out there for drivers to actually purchase

By now the technology, batteries, capacity, etc... would have been awesome if they would have pulled their heads out of the sand and listened to what folks were wanting even back then.

Carlo, it's a pic from behind at the rear axle. I know that there used to be a red EV1 in the Detroit Science Center and I don't think it's there anymore... so this might be the same one??? I haven't been to the Science Center in quite a few years.

SVOboy, feel free to use the pics I have never seen pics like this, so I figure not many other people have either. The students that walk past it every day probably don't even know how cool it is... sitting in the corner all sad and depressed.

You don't even have to sneak in. It's a college building full of classrooms and you can just walk right in. There is a security person at the front desk usually but they never bothered me... Another security guy saw me taking pics and asked me if I wanted to see the engine... I was like... uh... YEAH!

That's it. Now I need a photo of me in an EV1 to go with the photo of me in a Tesla.




I have heard there's one in a Museum in Madison, WI. That's only an hour from me. (An EV1, not a Tesla.)

Had a chuckle over the patron's name on the wall behind the car.

This makes me happy to see one still intact and not part of my ToGo mug thats red It also makes me very sad to see it in such deplorable condition. Did you see how dirty the interior was and how bad the paint looked. If I was anywhere near there I would clean the darn thing for free! If I get to sit inside and see the electronics of course, with camera.
edit: I'm copying these pics if its alright I probably won't use them for anything other than to make me sad this car is dead.

I doubt the tire would inflate it probably has a flat spot. Anybody else notice the coastdown button on the gear shift??? Would that be for a neutral coast? I thought that was something that happened whenever you released the accelerator.
