In was a beautiful sunny January afternoon and two 1974 VWs stretch their legs in Shasta Lake, California.  Featured in the video are B.O.B., a 1974 VW Beetle, which is battery powered, and Karmann a 1974 VW Karmann Ghia powered by a 2050cc gasoline engine.  The Bugs battery was down to 60% of capacity and still made impressive passes, even when compared to the pumped Karmann Ghia.
The Bug is currently for sale, and the Karmann Ghia is waiting to be converted to electric.  For more information on both, check out

Chico EAA

 The Chico, California Chapter of the Electric Auto
Association held its first meeting of 2012 on Saturday, January 14th.  We discussed what we would like to do as a group for 2012.  It was decided that we would start holding meetings monthly instead of every other month.  It was also decided that we would do some hands on projects.
We started the year by removing the internal combustion components on a members Chevy Luv pickup.  The Chico Chapter meets the second Saturday of every month.  Contact for more information.

Speaking of Hands-On, be sure and visit for information on our 3 Day Hands-On Workshops.
