Event ReportIt was a beautiful night for a car show.... nice weather, nice crowd. The local EV owners had various schedule conflicts, so only one EV was present. There were a lot of other events in the area that night, so the car count was low and the crowd was small. No haters this time, great questions and lengthy interactions from ICE owners and show spectators.
I know many other EAA chapters would consider this event an abysmal failure, but I consider it a success. My lone rider is now a former hater. A year ago he said I was an idiot for buying an electric car, but I finally got his butt in the seat. After the ride was over he said, "I take it back. I was wrong. You're right. I really wasn't expecting to be this impressed."

Booth setup, Leaf on display.
Come join the KBGO Cruise Night's free car show. We will have dedicated space for up to 12 EVs. Please arrive before 5:30pm, I will have to surrender the empty spaces after that time. CONVERSIONS WANTED! If you have an ICE to EV conversion please bring it, the show attendees would enjoy seeing one up close. (Contact me if you need to negotiate for travel expenses)
At least one EV will be available for rides after the show.
