Here it is then, the fourth episode of the making of our wind car. By the time we get to the sixth I’m hoping it’ll be on the road.

Good vid this one, all looks very industrial over there in Norfolk – and stuff is starting to come together.
I’m thinking it’s about time to come up with a name, and I’ve come up with a short list.
First thanks to everybody that sent suggestions, I enjoyed and appreciated them all, very much.
The short list I’ve come up with, and the reasons for each, are as follows:
Zero – Short version of the Zero C suggestion, has a certain neatness about it and many interpretations. WW2 Japanese fighter of course. Also a typical car has a badge announcing it’s cubic capacity, valve and/or turbo numbers – Zero all of this in our case. And Zero combustion/carbon. And it has a nice ring to it. The Zero.
Nemesis – Darker altogether and spawned from my traveller days when 2000 AD (the comic) was a cult read – anyone familiar with that will know the nemesis character. Pretty awesome. And Nemesis to the ICE car industry is exactly what EVs and WEVs are going to be, IMO. Like this one for the dark side. The Nemesis.
Storm – Weather inspired (not X men… :)), toyed with Tornado and Hurricane, both of which I like, but feel that Storm is more understated but still evocative. This is after all a weather driven car. The Storm.
I’d love to hear what you all think. Time to name the Wind Powered Car.
