We had 8 beautiful EVs with knowledgeable owners on hand to answer questions, including one from Power Kia in Salem. The dealer rep indicated the event was totally worth their time and was very enthusiastic about the response to the Soul EV. Many more car show participants lingered in the EV area this year, although most were shy about actually driving a car. One couple from Los Angeles, previous NDEW event organizers, dropped by on their travels. Dave's bright yellow Tesla Roadster won one of the awards for the car show and it was nice the EV group got some recognition. Many thanks to Cruisin' the Bay Car Show for again allowing us space to display the EVs and to Oregon Beach Vacations for covering registration fees and driver gifts. Oregon Beach Vacations, Oregon Electric Vehicle Association, and Central Lincoln PUD also contributed to the Cruisin' general fund to help with the show. Each year gets better and there was clearly more excitement this year about electric cars.
