Video: sweet electric Yaris is driving! (Conversion)

Arg! I missed this project's completion in November. (Firefox "Live Bookmarks" fell down on the job, I guess - I was relying on them to tell me when the blog was updated.)

Anyway...

What a nice, clean conversion. There's some on-the-road footage at the end. Even a little wheelspin from a stop sign

(Oh - it shows it as for sale, too.)
