It was another gorgeous sunny day here in Littleton, Massachusetts yesterday - perfect for the IBM Green Team's Electric Car Show, where colleagues were invited to bring their electric cars for show and tell, while the rest of us drooled.
Of course, the Chevy Volt was well-represented, as might be expected. "It's Shake and Bake, and we helped!"
The BMW 100%-electric ActiveE was on view. Rise, Electronauts!
But I think the uncontested star of the show was Bob Hurst's 1957 Citroen 2CV, converted to electric back in 1973 ..... 1973, people,.... by the good man himself, in response to the OPEC oil crisis.
You can read the full story of this fabulous green-ness here in this Hemmings article.
Many thanks to the car owners who shared their passions with us: Bill, Stuart, Steve, Simon, and Jim and his dad Bob. And thanks to the IBM Green Team for sharing with us!
