I have always liked the electric car concept. I was always fascinated by electric motors and the many things that they could be used for. I have wanted to build an EV since I was 15 years of age. When I was 48 years old I finally got up the courage and the funds to put my electric car together. The first day that I was able to drive a few miles, I wanted everyone to see it. Since then, the car has been improved vastly. I have been to car shows and all over town. It does not matter that it was expensive to build or, that it can only go 80 mph or, that 62 miles is as far as it will go on a charge. As many people show interest and delight as do people who simply hate the car for what it stands for. Either way, I have learned that it really does not matter because, I built it for myself and I love driving it. I am an experimenter and a discoverer. I am not afraid of ridicule or of failure. I refuse to be practical because nothing new and exciting comes of that. I am always looking for the best batteries, the best motor, and the best methods of construction. I push the limits to the extreme and drive the car until the wheels stop turning and the battery caps pop off. If you are like me, I am eager to share information; the kind of information that makes the dream a reality.
