EV1 - Driving it the final week before the crusher.

Uploaded on Feb 4, 2009 by Darell Dickey My 1997 EV1. Footage taken in November, 2003 just a week before the car was returned, under duress, to my local Saturn dealer. Soon after, the car was crushed. As you can clearly see, the car deserved a good crushing - for my own good.
