Meet the electric car that gets 207 MPG and "Ingenious"­ author Jason Fagone

Jason Fagone will be joining us to talk about electric vehicles with Kevin Smith, who built a 207-MPGe electric car in a barn in Illinois, with his bare hands, out of junkyard parts and steel he forged in a wood-burning stove.
Jason's new book, "Ingenious" details several stories of people building electric cars, and he and Kevin will be talking about it.

And...SEVEN, the car Kevin built, will be there, too.  Check out the video.

Doors open at 7, and the talk will begin at 8. Pizza is included.

      It looked like something Kevin made on shutterfly, so I'd recommend getting in touch with Jason. His website is and it has contact information.

    I believe Jason will also be bringing copies of his book to sell. It is AMAZING. Great read, very funny, and inspiring.
