An Electric Vehicle Conversion in a Garden Shed
This video, made for the Mechanicsburg Earth Day Festival, Saturday, April 24, 2010, in Mechanicsburg, PA, is an overview of my electric vehicle (EV) conversion from beginning to end covering many of the critical parts of the electric Saturn project. I had the video looping on a TV next to the exhibit of my Saturn EV conversion. My hope was to draw people to my booth with this video, but the picture on the TV was too hard to see in the outside light and the video itself was just too long, 10 minutes. It was simply the wrong venue to play this kind of a video -- lesson learned. All in all I spoke with a very diverse group of people about my EV conversion and electric car technology in general. This was the first public showing of my electric car, it was a good day great day. For more information about my electric Saturn, please visit www.zuglet.com
