My Car of the Future, Today

Mike Willmon
Anchorage, Alaska
"Electrabishi"

Willmon vehicle

I think that they are just not ready to stop profiting from the oil craze. You can see the specifications of my vehicle at:

See me drive the vehicle in this video produced by the ABC affiliate in Anchorage (courtesy ABC Alaska News, KIMO):
