Open to the public on Saturday (11th) and Sunday (12th) and on the

We had two converted electric cars on display: Eric's 1985 Holden (Suzuki) Barina and Marianne and Trevor's 1990 Daihatsu Charade.

Eric's 1985 Holden (Suzuki) Barina EV conversion, out with the petrol engine and in with the electric motor, add some batteries and controller and stir well...

The working models of: Battery, Controller and Motor were very popular with the younger generation. This one was put together by Blake.

Another working model of: Battery, Controller and Motor from Mic ...
