ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) - Heads turn when Tonya Graham drives through town.

"I know if I look up at a traffic light, somebody's going to be looking at me," she says. "I've heard people talking at intersections, saying, 'What the hell is that?"' The buzz began when Graham started commuting around town in a little, white, three-wheeled, electrically powered contraption that looks like a cross between a golf cart and a motorcycle. The Eugene-based company that built the rig calls it a Gizmo.

Graham calls it cheap, fun, ecologically-responsible transportation.
