More and more people are embracing new technologies for cars. And those that don't, will be left behind. These alternates are here to stay and the 2013 ALT CAR EXPO at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium is the place to see and experience them. This past weekend, the expo brought in some added fun with the Mitsubishi iMiev Woodie. The car gets about 60 miles on a charge, although I had one that got 77. (Review and hysterical episode with Matt Farah coming soon...)
But the event was fun with almost every manufacturer displaying cars and giving Ride N' Drives. If you're skeptical, then head to next year's show and drive some of these puppies. They're fun, quick and quiet.
