Just talked to Joel. He has offered to host an OEVA meeting at the Tonkin 
Nissan dealership in Wilsonville. I advised him we would need access to 240 
power as well as 120. They will provide refreshments.
Add one more Leaf to the list being sold. West Hills Collision Center just 
signed up for a Leaf for use as a loaner car for when vehicles are being 
repaired. I could not do this before with the trucks. However with the battery 
technology improvements that changes everything. So when the Leaf is 
delivered if you need collision work you can drive an EV. I am hoping we can sway 
more ICE drivers to consider EVs.

I never received any contact from Nissan after signing up several times.
I stopped by Tonkin Wilsonville Nissan yesterday, and talked with Joel
Fowler, internet sales manager. I'm not sure how the contacts are made,
but dealers are apparently notified of the customers who signed up online,
and then contact the customer directly to get further information.

Joel has only about 30 customers signed up so far. You fill out a sheet
with contact info and your credit card numbers, he will enter in your $99
deposit on April 19th @ midnight. (The midnight time is so you will be
first in line.)

He claims his dealership sells more Nissans than anyone in the Northwest.
So I'm surprised that he has only 30 people signed up!

He says he has received about 40 hours of training on the Leaf.

I let Joel know about our organization, and meeting tonight at the World
Trade Center @ 7PM, and invited him to come.

here is the contact information:
