You former New Jersey Replicar Club guys will remember Derek Cowburn.
Derek had a red speedster, with plans (dreams) of converting it to electric.
Rather than develop the car, Derek started a company dedicated to low energy, DC electrical systems for residential and commercial buildings. Not just lighting, appliance also.
Here's his company's web site: lumencache.lighting
Derek now lives in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. I chat with him occasionally. He's doing great and sends his regards to his old NJRC friends. He and Lynn are divorced, but still friends. Lynn lives in Indianapolis.
