About ElectricPhil’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I ran a repair shop for Mercedes and BMW cars back in the 70's. Specialized in installing turbochargers and nitrous oxide kits for street Q-ships.

Since the ZEV initiative in California, I've studied electric cars and they've become my passion because of their quietness, reliability, efficiency, and low emissions.

I currently drive the only model of electric vehicle that GM ever sold - the 1998 GM Chevrolet S10 electric truck.

My first car

'63 Rambler American 2dr Whte roof, Blue body.

Drove it 180,000 miles. Did one valve job and replaced original engine at 110,000.

Car I wish I still had

'69 Mercedes 280SLR - Green soft top, off-white body, green "tex" interior

My dream car

'03 RAV4 EV
