Original 192V minitruck built by John 'Plasma Boy' Wayland and featured as a one day conversion on the flim documentary 'Where the Rubber Meets the Road'. Ownership was transferred to friend John Tuss who used it as a daily driver at a reduced system voltage of 168V due to two failed prototype Optima group 31 batteries. Recently sold to mutual friend Marko Mongillo. Truck has just gone through a major reconversion project and now has more power, greater range, and all the batteries are now hidden under the tilt-away bed.
