I just bought a black Volt with 52k miles for $11.8k. I've converted an S10 and 1984 Fiero to electric and worked on the Chrysler TEVan electric van when I worked at GE. Those vehicles where garage shop experiments, but I had fun. I also own a 2000 Citrus and Red Insight. This car is a dream to drive compared to those. I have very little experience with this car, but I'm a quick learner.
