OEVA in Hillsboro 4th of July Parade 2009

The Oregon Electric Vehicle Association (OEVA) had six vehicles in the Hillsboro Oregon 2009 4th of July Parade (Pictures and two short videos below).

In starting order the OEVA vehicles were:
1) Corbin Sparrow
2) Honda Insight (converted to 100% electric)
3) Twike (2-seater electric with pedal assist)
4) Chevy S10 Electric (Factory made by GM as 100% electric in 1998)
5) Trike (custom made 3-wheeler chopper)
6) Zap Zebra PK Truck

The last two pictures in the slideset are other EVs that happened to be at the parade.


When the OEVA passed by the Rotary Club announcer's booth, we had a brief stop in the parade. This meant that we had a little more air-time. They talked briefly about our club, what we do, that electric cars might become big business for Oregon. Then they said to our Twike driver that the OEVA should hold an Electric Vehicle event right here in Oregon. Well guess what, we are doing exactly that on July 11th at Pioneer Courthouse Square starting at 9:30AM till 4:30PM. A great plug for our EVent.

1360 AM was also covering the parade. By the time I had seen their tent and turned on the radio, they were talking about the Girl Scouts that were behind us and wondering why 2 of them were wearing chicken suits. They could not figure it out and neither can I.

Enjoy the Pictures!
