Thumbs up Visiting the ForkenSwift?

Hello Gentlemen - is it possible that an interested "future" EV'r could take a closer look at the ForkenSwift? I live in Hamilton and do not mind taking a field trip at your convenience for a viewing. Many thanks and keep up the great work! Ken.

Sure thing. Send me a PM or e-mail darin (at) ecomodder (dot) com. We can set something up.

That said, there are EV's to be seen closer to your neck of the woods. Look up the Durham EV Association: http://www.durhamelectricvehicles.com/

Haha. The handle surrounds are already broken ... and off. I'll try to remember to remove the gear shift knob like the cars at the shows.
