You may recall earlier this month that noted environmentalist and celebrated actor Ed Begley, Jr. was auctioning his own 2002 Toyota RAV4 EV on eBay. Bidding got up to $13,655 without meeting the reserve, and the auction ended on June 12 without a sale.

Yeah, we know you're cool (you're reading AutoblogGreen after all). But are you cool enough to hang with the likes of a certain Ed Begley Jr.? If you can get yourself to Chatsworth, California, Ed, hold the Mister, will available to sign copies of his new book, Living Like Ed, as well as answer any questions you might have about living green and the environment or about being a television superstar.

I won't delve into the details of the Phoenix SUT, as they have been covered here before. The basics are that this is an electric vehicle that will act just like any other four door pickup truck for 130 miles at a time between charges. I am seriously considering getting one when I replace my current pickup truck.
