Um this fabulous opportunity kind of exactly conflicts with my own talk about EV's at Lehigh Valley Green Drinks at the Bethlehem Brew Works which I was just about to start promoting the heck out of here on this blog, but hey it all depends whether Plymouth Meeting or Bethlehem are closer to you. Also, on whether at this point in your EV education you need to see cars, because if you want to see some boy o boy here is the place to be on Wednesday June 8:
The EEVC (Eastern Electric Vehicle Club) of Valley Forge PA will present an electric car display in the west parking lot of Plymouth Whitemarsh High School from 6:00- 8:00 PM Wed June 8, 2011. A number of electric conversions will be featured along with the renowned electric Tesla sports car and a historic GM EV-1.
Dr. Joel Anstrom from the Hydrogen and Hybrid Research Lab of Pennsylvania State University will present some of the latest research regarding electric & hybrid vehicles at a meeting in the Plymouth-Whitemarsh Senior High School west end cafeteria at 8:00 P.M. Highlights & awards of this year's 21st Century Automotive Challenge (21st CAC) at Penn State will also be presented.
This special event is sponsored by the EEVC, the 21st CAC, and the industrial technology department at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School. It is open to the public. Students, parents, community members, and anyone interested are encouraged to attend.

Why Electric Vehicles?
If you are new to EV's, watch the six-minute video below to learn about the history and advantages of all-electric vehicles. The video features our converted 1991 Dodge Colt.
Click below for a clip of our 1985 Volkswagen Vanagon EV rolling for the first time on August 10, 2007. It was converted by the participants in a two-week EV Conversion Workshop sponsored by Bucks County Renewables, and then re-converted and upgraded during a second workshop in 2009.
