Teh intertubez are clogged with examples of all manner of contraptions and do-hickeys cobbled together by folks with lots of imagination and the desire to get about town sans clouds of exhaust or pools of perspiration. Many are laughable or, even worse, forgettable. I stumbled across this little handmade runabout and thought, "Hmm, that's actually not half bad. I want one of those." So, I thought I'd share it with y'all (hey, I am in the South) and maybe get your thoughts.

This electric quadricycle was designed and built by one George Fortin. He claims a respectable 40mph top speed, a range of 15 miles, and the ability to accelerate from 0 to 30 mph in about 5 seconds. It's no Tesla, but here at AutoblogGreen, we've seen slower. After the jump lurk several videos of gizmos and concepts with which you can compare and contrast the personality and practicality of Monsieur Fortin's creation.
