Just as men like Vic Edelbrock Sr. and Carroll Shelby greatly advanced the Hot Rod and sports car markets in their day there are people at home today that are forging the future of the electric car. Maybe someday there will be electric car parts manufacturers named after one of them.

Some do it for their own benefit in driving while others do it to champion the cause. And then there are some who work on their own electric experiments just to say they did it. Whatever the reason the Electric car is finding fans and enthusiasts in many nooks and corners of the country.
