More than eight years after discontinuing the now-notorious EV1 electric car, General Motors Corp.'s quirky little ride just won't go away.

Fans of the EV1 still haven't forgiven GM for halting the electric car program -- and destroying most of the cars -- in 1999. That decision inspired the documentary, "Who Killed the Electric Car."

A crowd of EV1 supporters snagged a vehicle that had been donated by GM and took it for a quick spin on a California street. The act was caught on tape and has spawned videos on YouTube.com. As of this week, thousands have logged on to watch.
