It appears it's not only their good friends and neighbors the Israelis who are gaining interest in the whole electric car concept. Faced with an on-going fuel shortage, a pair of Palestinian electrical engineers have put together a battery-powered car that is now the envy of their fellow countrymen (and women). Spending only $2,500, the two converted a small liquid-fuel drinking car to one which is simply plugged in to acquire its locomotive energy. Powered by 32 batteries, the car has a range of around 100 miles and appears to be a success. "At first people laughed, saying it would not work, now people are begging us to convert their cars," said Fayez Amman, one of the vehicle builders. Truly, necessity is the mother of invention.
