BOY ! We're we Hammered. I mean the questions, and inquiries just
kept coming.. From hours before the show opened, till way passed the
time we were all headed over to my place for the Annual SEVA BBQ.
Many thanks for all the Extra Effort that went into this years "Gasless
on Greenwood" First myself... Your Welcome...
But mostly the folks who came from a distance.. Mark Mongillo's and his
1968 Datsun Pick-up, and John Waland, just FRESH off the plane from
Alaska, and Roy LeMeur for helping them both get up here.. Thanks Roy.
and Mark from MC Electric for his entry, and helping Paul Gooch get his
darling VW Doon Buggy down from Everett. ...But also just all the
regulars who came from near and far..Stephen Bernheim all the way down
from Edmonds in his Sparrow... always a crowd pleasure. Father Time,
although in L.A. at the time..for arranging two buddies to bring one of
his classy Drag Bikes. Kent Bakke and his Red VW Bug. Andrew Schwarz
down from Bothell, and his beautiful Mazda Miata.. Dave Cloud and one of
his customers, who was kind enough to bring a very nice 4-door
Geo-Metro... a very nice example of a conversion, which was certainly a
big Item of Conversation.. Ryan Fulcher was swamped with questions on
Plug-In-Hybrids !! Many folks recognized his perfectly prepared Toyota
Prius, from its recent article in the Seattle Times News Paper. If we
had a ready-made PHEV KIT, I think we could have sold a DOZEN right
there on the SPOT. Dave Barden brought his Ohhh-too cuit Honda 600 EV.
Want to THANK our friends from Green Car Company for joining us too.
Hope they got a lot of ACTION. Wonderful to see those Smart Cars, and
Want to give special thanks to Ryan, for the on-going video
show/presentation out of the back of his Prius... Always a gathering
point for crowds. Many folks still BLOWN AWAY once realizing how FAST
Plasma-Boys White Zombie Datsun is.... A great show.
I was way horse of voice by noon... Shouting at the crowd, when folks
would walk by with out stopping..." You'll be BACK when gas is $5 a
Gallon !! """ ( some folks laughed.... some did not... ) You have
to remember we were in the "Den of Lions" I mean there was Oil, and
GAS, and Chrome, and custom paint jobs, as far as the eye could see...
The only problem... ( which we WILL resolve for next year...) is having
a designated SPOT before entering the show area... Like the Ferrari Club
or the Mini Club, or the GTO Club. We went down, to where there was
SUPPOSED to be 12 spots, only to be turned around and heading back
towards the End of the Line. I jumped out, ( near 74th,,, and just
Proclaimed a Half Block as " !!ELECTRIC CAR LAND..STAND CLEAR...WE'RE
BACKING I N !! It worked out OK.
Thanks again to everyone. And THANKS to all who came to the BBQ. Chuck
! Thanks for the Chicken. Thanks the Bardons for the Tebuli, and the
Meyers, and all the others too... It was great to break bread with all
our EV Friends...
Now ON to the next show... Who's coming to Tacoma with me on the
9th of July ????
