I just got back to work from lunch and the auto store to get some parts
for our ICE car.

On the way to Advance Auto, I am stopped at a red light. A guy on a
motorcycle pulls up next to me and laughs, “what the hell is that?"
“It’s a personal commuter car”, I replied. “It's electric? How fast
does it go”, he snickered. “It’s quick enough”, I said.

The light went green and I squeaked the tire just a little, then I
heard the motorcycle open up. I just kept him in my rear view mirror.
As he would start to gain I would press just a bit more. Tweety never
ran out of more go, but, this was probably the fastest race Tweety has
been in. It took almost 350 amps to keep him behind me. He let off
early and exited at the next light with no further comments.

I have no idea what kind of motorcycle it was. It was a blue one. I
suspect something in the 500cc range.

At the next light, a bright blue PT Cruiser pulled up. A young lady
stuck her hand out the window in a thumb’s up gesture and said, “Really
cool ride!”

Made my day! :)

Hey Ken

She probably just watched you blow away the MC 8^)

What's funny is I can picture you getting pulled over
by a cop asking you if you're the one who just layed
rubber back at the light, and you replying "What! in
this thing! Please!" LMAO

"But honest officer, this thing is only battery powered, I couldn't possibly have layed those 100 ft twin black stripes. It must have been that Red 5.0 liter Mustang that was next to me at the light. :-O"

Do you think that would work for a Pinto? I mean no one in their right mind would ever suspect.....a Pinto?

That might work. But, keep in mind there a probably quite a few cops on the force today that have never seen and don't know what the hell a Pinto is; or what a slow piece of crap it was before you modified it.

My luck I'd get the " Didn't I see you at the track last weekend?"

The bright orange colored Pinto would be hard to forget, doh!
I better keep it tame on the street lest I be accosted by every cop in town.

The officer might surprise you badly.. :

" .. Don't try that on me !! I'm regular Wall Street Journal reader
and I bet you're friend of that Zombie guy. Her's $500 more for
misleading an officer..."

Publicity is not "good" for the cause always :)

Imagine... soon you might have A123s in the Tweety... someday.. why not ?

After that the driver might just need it too..

A quote from a drug book in a net somewhere...

"Lithium is used to treat the manic episodes of manic depression. Manic
symptoms include hyperactivity (driving around city teasing ICEs),
rushed speech (in parking lots to explain what the heck EVs are for),
poor judgment (Drag racing in traffic), reduced need for sleep (who the
heck want's to sleep when you can be out on the treets putting shame on
Ricers and V8s), aggression ("keep yur gusslers out..of.. my.. WAY!!"),
and anger (ned new tires! AGAIN ! WTF!)."
