Teen’s EV projects

Andrew writes on his blog:

Welcome to Greenflight EV, a source of information on all of my electric vehicle-related projects! My name is Andrew. I’m 17 years old, and I’ve always had an interest in vehicles of any kind. I also have a “do more with less” attitude, and a concern for what the petroleum industry is doing to our society and our environment. I want to show how easy it is to convert to electric, and how practical these vehicles are for everyday driving.

Gawd. And to think when I was 17, I was at work on a different type of alternative fuel experimentation involving matches and baked beans.

    I love the flames on the engine, though in keeping with the changing times they should probably be sparks or lighting bolts…

    Just think! In a few decades you’ll be attending a hotrod-EV car show and checking out the pin-striping and hand wound motors coils in that turn of the century classic: a souped up honda civic.

    (there’s got to be good little short story in that somewhere…)
