Car enthusiasts gather for electric vehicle conversion convention

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Car enthusiasts are gathering at the 3rd Annual Electric Vehicle Conversion Convention In Cape Girardeau.

More than 100 electric vehicle builders are at the Arena Building trading tips and tricks on converting cars to electric power.

"It is about the opportunity for people around the world and around the country that are building electric vehicles to come together and have an event where they can trade stories and some of the secrets and techniques that they have learned," said Brian Noto, organizer of the show.

There are several events this weekend open to the public. There will be an electric car drag race on Friday at the Cape Girardeau airport and a car show at Arena Park on Saturday.
