Could your car be converted to run on batteries instead of gas? Would it provide the speed and range you need? How hard is it to convert? What does it cost to convert and operate an electric car? These questions and others will be answered in a free one-day workshop sponsored by the Electric Auto Association.
The early portion of the talk will cover general information about conversions - cost, performance, environmental issues, etc. Then speaker Mike Brown will get into the nuts and bolts, from choosing a suitable chassis, stripping it, installing the components and wiring, to charging, maintenance, and driving techniques. The public is encouraged to attend, and questions are welcome. Several electric cars will be on hand for examination during breaks.
