Shop Report

Great first Saturday of the month EV one day workshop today. Jerry delivered a fantastic power point presentatoion as he held the Little Volt speaker’s sticker in hand the entire time. Mr Q didn’t say a word for fear of being poked by that Little Volt speaker sticker for sure, for sure. Also, met some wonderful and  potential EV’ers by name of James, Mario, Bill, Rob, Joel S., Joel A., Paul and Ethan. All went well thanks to the additional presence of KGCC charter member Vince and long time members, Jerry, Jack and our newest member Ken. Additionally, EV rides with the top down were enjoyed by all participants ( via freeway and local streets ) by way of Blackie, the stealth EV and Love and Live POWERFUL , Mr.Q
