The convention was a great success.  The energy was incredible, having over 140 attendees all with the same interest in EV's.  I think we all felt that it was a special place to be, and that this was the beginning of a new way of life.  I felt that there was an air of hopefulness, something to look forward to.  I am sure it has to do with the fact that when you meet people that believe in the same things, you no longer feel alone.

I was very happy to meet Chris Payne.  His Documentary "Who Killed The Electric Car" was pivotal in the way I wanted to live my life.  That is why I dropped everything and converted a car to electric drive before I could move on.  Now that I have been to EVCCON, I want to help other people do it too.

Thanks again Chris for a great presentation and for showing us your new film "Revenge of The Electric Car".  This is a must see for all when it comes into a theatre near you.


  1. Hey John!
    Good work getting updates on EVcCON already, and plugging Chris as promised..
    Must mention you are the first guy I know that can fully pull off a smile with DOWNturned corners-of-mouth :) .. or maybe :()

    Was great meeting you, and you must consider hopping over to Amsterdam during your next visit to the UK..welcome to stay with us etc.


  2. John,

    It was terrific getting the chance to meet you at EVCCON. There were so many great people there and so much information to absorb. I've just sent Mark Emon a detailed explanation of some of the Manzanita charger's issues that I'd be happy to share with you if you'd like. Just drop me an email timcat at gmail dot com.

    By the way, sorry for calling you "Lawrence" when you left. Don't know what I was thinking. Worried about strapping the car down I guess. We made it home safe though.

    Take care!

  3. John, I had no idea when I met you that I have been watching your blog for some time. Great donor car btw! I look forward to your updates, and it was a pleasure making your acquaintance! BTW, I'm one of the fools staying in Jack's still 'till way too late and certainly the most sober of the bunch :)

  4. John,

    Like Nabil I also had no idea that I was watching your blog when I met you. It is nice to put a face with the name. I love your conversion and look forward to more updates!
