If you find yourself driving around Houston, be on the lookout for a bright green Volkswagen Beetle. It’s probably the quietest Beetle in the city.

Retired NASA engineer John Hendrickson converted an old 1972 Beetle to electric power with help from Randy Risner, the Manager of Interstate Battery System of Houston. Hendrickson tells the Houston Chronicle that Risner provided 12 gel-cell batteries for the conversion in exchange for some advertising decals. Hendrickson says the car gets about 50 miles per charge.
