EV Conversion Workshops on the West Coast This Spring - and Online Resources

NEWS FLASH:  NJEAA meeting 1/18/11 cancelled owing to weather - no Plug-in Prius @ the Rockaway mall tonight

It was a note from a correspondent in Brazil that let me know that Abrán Quevedo has scheduled workshops for this spring -- isn't the internet wonderful?  André will be attending the 5-day workshop in San Diego and will have the good fortune of meeting Abrán in person, which I have never done -- but I acknowledge him as the spiritual father of our East Coast workshops, and very much appreciate his free sharing of ideas and encouraging support in spreading the good EV word.

Electric Autoshop also has an interesting model for a kind of turn-key EV course to convert a Chevy S-10 at your own location.  They lease their full curriculum plus a conversion kit for $18,000.  See the details by clicking on the logo above.  I have no experience with their program, but the online documentation of it looks very thorough!
