The EV Show, about EV conversion

Yes, I am promoting a business, it’s a small business, I have no hidden agenda, do not own part of the business, not associated with it, but, I do like performance cars and electric cars even more so, and that’s what they do.

EV West started an hour (or so) long show for people interested in converting a car to electric. EV West does conversions and also sells parts, chargers, and stuff you need for DIY EV conversion. Watching their videos you can learn a bit about electric car conversion or just follow their projects. I hope to one day have my car converted to electric, so, I enjoy this show, but, if you have any interest in electric cars, you may like this show.

The show is monthly, they refer to it as electric car info-tainment, and they will be adding a new show any day now (for March). For your convenience, below is posted the first three shows (they have improved the show each time).

Boeing 787 Dreamliner Uses the Most Flammable Battery on the Market

Don’t buy into the negativity that will/has been fed to the media about electric transportation technology because of Boeing’s problems with the 787, read the articles above to see that there are most definitely differences between Boeing’s 787 batteries and those used in electric and hybrid vehicles.

Driver Benji (this blog) update:

I have decided to focus this blog on electric cars, hybrids & other alternative energy transportation and also solar technology. I will be posting soon on how all-electric car technology has been available for some time. Some years ago GM was given a head-start opportunity and dropped the ball and Tesla (& others) has picked it up, but there are those that make big $ the way things are now that act like bullies to anything that threatens their stranglehold on consumers (mostly behind the scenes). I will start by posting a must-see documentary. Also I will give tidbits of the history of the electric car w/links to articles on this subject.

I will also blog on the other things already stated in “About This Blog”, just bringing more focus on ZEV or EV news and information. (Zero Emissions Vehicle).

Next blog post coming soon!
