Electric Miata donated to our program!
Today we took delivery of a 1991 72 volt electric Mazda Miata conversion. The car has 12 miles on the conversion and the overall mileage is only 105,000! The car, converted by local businessman Irving Smith, will be used as a rolling learning platform for troubleshooting and project development for the EV class. Mr. Smith and some of his friends converted the Miata "just to see if they could do it". After the successful conversion, Mr. Smith decided to donate it to the Topsail Electric Vehicle class so it could go to a good cause and a worthy recipient.
