Bob, here is my disclaimer. I have no interest in the Sunrise project
other than to encourage EV development. I drive a 1981 Jet Electrica,
and every time I opportunity charge I do so using Lee's advice. So
my monthly contribution clears my conscience.

At 79 I am living on a fixed income, and do not expect to ever own
another EV. But I do hope to see the EV2 on the road some day soon.

P.S. And Bob, I appreciate the 'Taken for a Ride' video you sent me!

I'm in the same boat as you: Retired and on a VERY fixed income, EVen
renting out rooms in my house as I can't really afford to live here, or
anywhere ELSE anybody would want to live! I'm hoping to find another
boyfriend that can and would help with expenses. I separated from my wife 8
years ago, came "Out" rather late in life. HAD a loving guy that left me,
well, died of a heart attack, at 53! Smoking will KILL you!I delete those
guyz n the ads early on.Not going through THAT again!I get a decent pension
from Amtrak, but it isn't one like Jack White at Generous Electric. I
figgured I could sell a few electric conversions a year, for extra
income?Got two Sentras under construction, when I get my dead ass OFF the
computer, go buy the longer metric bolts I need to mount the motor/tranny
back in thre 97.Maybe I'll have it running on jumper cables by the EAA
Meeting on Sat? Just takes TIME!

If I never actually OWN a sunrise, like you, I won't be too upset. I want
to see EV's Out there before I pass on. IF I have expidited this, I can say
I did SOMETHING good, becides making my lover happy<g>!To be remembered as a
pionerer in the EV thing, have inspired other guyz to DO something! SOMEBODY
has to! "Be the Change you want to see in the World?" As Ghandi used to say.
I have that sticker in the Kitchen, with many others, stuck up on the walls,
as a reminder." Gay Marriage doesn't bother me, No Healthcare Does". "Live
Simply so Others can Simply Live" another. You can get all these at Cafe
Press on line. I want one that sez" If you aren't MAD, you don't know what's
going on" with maybe, eagle, American flag motif??I'm ashamed of my greedy
generation,They are TRASHING the country!, as I'm about the Prez's age,
older than Chaney! Scary! Yeah! I know, I'm preaching to the choir here as
you got me in years.You have scene too much shit flow under the bridge, too?

Glad ya enjoyed Taken for a Ride, too. It SHOUKLDA gone mainstream, like
WKtEC! I show it around have run off many copies as it doesn't have that
#$%^ Copy guard, as it isn't mainstream enough, I guess.TRY to copy a
current pop movie, and it is unwatchable!Christ! The recoirding industry has
re copywritten MY stuff, music on old 78's, going back to Edison's time!!!
Like I'm selling record copies. I was gunna DO that, years agoo, make
cassette copies of my WW1 stuff and popular 20's music, some from record
co's that are out of biz; Grey Gull of Boston comes to mind. I thonk Sony
BMG owns every recording on the planet?With new crap, like popular"Music" of
today? I wouldn't buy or listen, I'm listening to classical from WMNR a semi
public, private station. Yes I GIVE in their begathons. You have to pay to
keep classical on the air.We're blessed with TWO here in CT. PBS, too.TV a
wasteland! But I need SOMETHING to watch my NetFlix vids on. History Channel
if fun, I tape stuff from that pausing for the godammn ads!They had a good
vid in Freight Trains. I'll send ya a copy of ya like?They are gunna do
"Brittanic, Titanic's Sister Ship' Also sunk.As I'm an old ship geek, too.
The liner" United States " is STILL around, giogle it, for a good read.She
was the pride of our nation, 50 years ago. Now a rusting hulk, silted in in
a slip in Philly. You see her mighty stacks and profile from I-95 going
through Philly.Can't miss her!

OK Raambled on too long here.

Seeya

Bob

Let me also thank John personally for his support. Indeed, he is one of many people who have been contributing regularly to the Sunrise EV2 project. Maybe others will identify themselves and their reasons for helping as well.

I've put in about half the money, but others have generously contributed the other half. Since finances limit how fast we can move, this has basically doubled the rate of our progress.

Three people in particular stand out. Bob Rice is the founder and chief organizer for the purchase of the Sunrise body and chassis that got the project started. He has also been a major contributor of time, money and parts.

Jerry Dycus is also one of the founders and contributors. Even though his plate is pretty full with his own Freedom EV, Jerry has contributed a lot of time and expertise on the Sunrise. For example, he just drove up from Florida and spent a week with us working on the Sunrise chassis. He is a composites expert, and I don't know anyone who can do more for less than Jerry.

Finally, Tim Medeck is the master craftsman that is bringing it all together. We're building our prototype at his shop, and you couldn't ask for a better place to work. He is an absolute genius at fabrication. At some point, we're going to have to take some good pictures so you can see the calibre of his work.
