    With the end of the Volt CAB program coming very soon, we’re celebrating the end of the program and the beginning of the move into production of electric cars from GM so join us as we say “The Volt is Dead, Long Live the Volt!”.

    We’ll be syncing up our event with the West Coast event at the same time to create one big EV get together.

    We’re meeting on Saturday 5th February at 1pm at Tom Mouloughney’s restaurant “Nauna’s Bella Casa” in Montclair, NJ.

    We plan to meet up then take a short parade lap around the town, Daniel Gray will recording the event to compile a view from both sides of the country.

    All EVs are welcome; we have MINI, Tesla & Plug-In Prius already lined up. Bring your friends and family too!


    Please email [email protected] with your contact details so that we can reach you on the day in the event that the snow comes back!

    Email to let us know you’ll be able to come along: [email protected]


    We’ll also be putting our collective minds to together to figure out the best hiding spots for the Volts when the collection team arrives!

    See you there!



    Thanks to Nuana’s Bella Casa and to Trans Atlantic Electric Conversions LLC for helping set this all up.

    Will you be holding a mock funeral?

    I think the plan is to do a live birthing this time around.

    MPT, I'm gonna try and make it. I'm also gonna see if my brother can come down from NY as he has a regular Mini and I know he would love to see the Mini-E (and Tesla).

    Thanks to everyone that had pledged to come over on Saturday for the EV meet up.

    Sadly, the weather has beaten us, it’s a great day today but the outlook for tomorrow calls for freezing rain (90% chance) - not conducive to much fun.

    We’ll have to reschedule our event when we see a little warmer weather.

    Thanks again,
    Michael Thwaite

    We are still on here on the West coast. Might be 80 tomorrow.

    But we don't get the fun of driving a Ev in the snow!

    Is there an SF Bay Area meet as well or just SoCal?

    36 plus cars. three leaf 12 volt 10 Tesla 2 mini and bunch of Rav and some one-offs. The meet was in the very place WKTEC featured EV1 saving protesters getting arrested. The feeling was ....

    Note the row of chargers at SCE destination are under an (inefficient) thin film solar array.

    Ian took some pics too.

    Posted on youtube in reply to the video David posted:

    So that's what rush hour could sound like if:

    1. Cities enforce zero emission zones (likely to happen in Europe during this decade)

    2. The legislative desire to install "noisemakers" goes the same way as the requirement for a "man waving a red flag" in front of the cars of an earlier century

    I am looking forward to quiet city centres
