Magic Bus

It's simply amazing how quickly 2.5 years can fly by.  Time to resurrect the Conversion Blog, or perhaps "Clog."  (i know i know... hey, if the clog fits...)

The days (years) have been largely filled with electric cars and music-making.  We're working with three colleges / universities now, and "it's been an education" (ha).  Actually I've really enjoyed these experiences, and am pleased to see just how great a fit EV conversion seems to be in academic settings.  You can easily involve students and faculty from a broad variety of disciplines, and thus departments, if you like, and this will almost definitely improve the entire end product. 

I always get a little emotional when an electric conversion is finished and a vehicle gets a new soul, in essence redefining itself.  Well this little guy, a 1970 VW Micro Bus, took his first steps recently and I simply felt the need to document it, as any dad would.  There will be more to report on soon as the paint and re-assembly continues.  

Also, stay tuned for the ninth and final episode of the electric British Taxi Saga, or perhaps "Limousine" is now the more appropriate term.
