I want to buy a used electric car or pickup truck(converted by someone) in
the san francisco bay area.  Or one that can be shipped to the bay
area.  It can have a very short range (20 miles).  I would prefer it
can be charged from a normal plug.

The links below don't help me buy a car.  Surely there must be some
more information...perhaps message boards?  I'd like a car I can buy.

Hi larry95

I am unsure of what you mean by this. The URL ( ) I posted to you had
a number of links where used electric cars are available for sale, or
information about prospective sales could be accessed. The
descriptions of the links clearly led to such locations.
