Family Goes Green by Converting Truck to Electric Drive
It's amazing what a family movie night and a little technical know-how can accomplish. Just ask Ron and Dylan Erb of O'Fallon.
After watching the environmentally oriented documentaries "Who Killed the Electric Car?" and "An Inconvenient Truth" during the same week, a family member suggested to the father-son duo that they build an electric car of their own.
"It was actually Dylan's mother (Millie Erb) who suggested it," said Ron Erb, who along with his son Dylan, converted a 1996 Ford Ranger into an electric vehicle. "She said, 'My next car is going to be electric. Where is it going to come from?'""We decided to do (it) in May and we made a goal of getting it completed by the New Year. We still have some things to do on it, but we were able to take it out for a drive on New Year's Eve."
