National Drive Electric Week

celebrates clean, safe, fun electric vehicles in

300 communities September 8–16

Plug In America’s coast-to-coast celebration to include first annual Drive Electric Awards

LOS ANGELES, August 31, 2018—The 8th annual National Drive Electric Week (NDEW), a coast-to-coast celebration of electric vehicles (EVs), will be held September 8–16 in more cities and towns than ever before, and in all 50 states for the second year in a row. There are currently more than 300 registered events across the United States, plus Canada and New Zealand, with more events being added daily. Through test drives, parades, news conferences and announcements of new EV policies and programs, NDEW community events demonstrate how EVs provide cleaner air, save consumers money, and are more fun to operate than conventional vehicles. Last year, there were 276 events with more than 120,000 attendees.

NDEW events are primarily organized by volunteers in big cities and small towns, giving neighbors the opportunity to talk about EVs with one another. Many events feature ride-and-drives, because the best way to learn about EVs is to test drive one and experience the smooth ride and instant torque, in a non-sales setting.     

The event comes at a time when more Americans are choosing to drive electric than ever before, with nearly every major automaker producing at least one model, including models with longer ranges at more affordable prices. Nearly one million EVs have been sold since they were introduced. Plug In America recently launched the PlugStar EV Shopping Assistant to help consumers learn more about driving electric, find the best EV for their family, and connect with a qualified dealer in their area.     

“EVs are cheaper to fuel, more fun to drive, and better for our planet,” said Joel Levin, executive director of Plug In America. “They are simply superior to traditional gas-powered cars and we want to educate every American about this innovative technology.”   

Visit the National Drive Electric Week website at driveelectricweek.org to find and register for an event in your community. National Drive Electric Week is presented by Plug In America, the Sierra Club, and the Electric Auto Association.

Nissan LEAF is the exclusive national automotive sponsor of National Drive Electric Week. Clipper Creek is a national Silver sponsor

                                                                                                                                 

UPDATE ON THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S PROPOSED 25% TARIFF ON ALL IMPORTED VEHICLES AND PARTS:

On Thursday, June 19, Mark Hyman testified before a panel comprised of US Department of Commerce members who were accepting testimony related to the Trump Administration’s proposed 25% tariff on all imported automobiles and automobile parts, as a matter of national security. Speaking alongside Mark were several representatives of the automobile industry, representatives of major parts suppliers, and those from other industries that support the supply chain, all of which were speaking out in vehement opposition to this proposal.

Acting as a representative of the classic, collector and special-interest vehicle business, Mark’s testimony focused on the impacts such tariffs would have on our segment of the industry. Not surprisingly, it seemed that those in charge of drafting this legislation had little to no idea that vintage automobiles in America comprise a nearly $180 billion industry, which would be negatively and severely impacted should such proposed tariffs become law.

Mark believes that the Commerce Department representatives were interested and receptive to his testimony and that of others. Our hope is that his efforts and the efforts of all of those enthusiasts, collectors, and business owners who took the time to submit public comments will be heard, and that an exception will be granted to allow vintage vehicles to continue to be imported at the current import duty of 2.5%, and avoid the proposed tenfold increase.

A number of major news outlets and industry publications were on hand to report on this matter, and Mark was quoted in several articles including Bloomberg, CNN Money, and Forbes, among others, links to each are found below.

It is our profound desire that this proposed legislation be heavily revised or scrapped altogether. The potential for damage to virtually every segment of the automobile industry as a whole, including new, used, and vintage vehicles is massive. We hope that the administration listens to the voice of reason in this matter.

Mark and the whole team at Hyman Ltd. will continue to fight for our rights as members of this industry and as vintage automobile lovers ourselves. It has been an honor to represent you, our clients, friends and fellow enthusiasts and we will continue to stay abreast of the situation as it evolves.

Stop the Proposed Tariffs on Collector Car Imports

 

Stand with Hyman Ltd and tell Washington "NO" on collector car import tariffs

 

To Our Valued Customers,

 

It has been brought to our attention by Marshall Miller of Miller & Company P.C. that on May 23, 2018, the Department of Commerce published a Notice of Request for Public Comment regarding Section 232, investigation into the importation of automobiles and their effect on National Security. Details of which can be found HERE.

 

Simply put, President Trump is considering action by Proclamation to apply an import duty of25% on ALL automobiles (this includes cars, SUVs, vans and light trucks), AND parts, regardless of age or origin. This would mean a 25% duty on ANY car – whether it be brand new or 100 years old. As automobile enthusiasts and professionals in the industry, we strongly urge you to vehemently oppose this unfair, dubious tax.

 

America currently applies a 2.5% duty on imported cars, which is waived on those of American origin. Under Trump’s proposal, we face a tenfold increase will surely cause retaliation from the European Union in the same manner the recent steel tariffs has proven. 

 

Clearly, the importation of classic and collectible vehicles has absolutely no impact on our National Security, and these proposed tariffs would only serve to harm the countless individuals and independent businesses who buy, sell, restore and transport cars. The collector car hobby is a multi-billion dollar-per-year business, and we must work together to fight this ludicrous proposal. Washington bureaucrats have no understanding of the impact such a political stunt would cause, therefore it is our responsibility to educate them.

 

The purpose of this letter is to ask you all to join us in appealing to officials to remove any and all language related to “Used Automobiles and Parts”, and separate any content that could be perceived as pertaining to the collector car hobby from this proposed 25% tariff.

 

The process for commenting is simple:

 

Go to https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=DOC-2018-0002 and click the COMMENT NOW button on the right of the page. It takes no more than a few minutes to support the separation of all language related to “used vehicles and parts” from the proposed tariff. The deadline for submitting comments is June 22, 2018.

 

In addition, we urge you to contact your Senators and Representatives to warn them of the adverse effects these proposed tariffs will have not only our beloved hobby, but more importantly the risk they pose to the thousands of passionate and hard-working Americans who make their living in the business of collector vehicles.

 

We send our sincerest thanks to Attorney Marshall Miller of Miller & Company P.C. for bringing this critical matter to our attention. Miller & Company are highly respected experts in all matters of international trade, and they can be contacted at www.millerco.com. We thank you for your support and encourage you to act swiftly and share this letter on social media and among your friends in the hobby.

 

Sincerely,    

 

Mark and The Team at Hyman Ltd.

1911 POPE-HARTFORD
PORTOLA ROADSTER

 

It is believed the body is a reconstruction of the original, built atop a genuine Portola engine and chassis. After its time with Dick

King, the Pope-Hartford was

passed to another brass-era enthusiast who continued to show and enjoy the car. Still appearing fresh and impeccably detailed, the black bodywork is finished to concours quality standards, with outstanding paintwork on the

chassis and body components.

The wooden cowl boards are exquisitely finished, like fine

antique furniture. The frame-

mounted fuel tanks and gloss

black patent-leather skirts

between the body and running

boards help give the Pope its low-slung appearance, despite those massive 36” wheels. Accessories include Pope-Hartford branded

Gray & Davis headlamps, Gray & Davis cowl lamps and numerous beautifully restored brass fittings. Instrumentation is via a Warner speedometer and clock, while a separate gauge monitors fuel pressure, which is boosted via a

hand pump between the seats. Running boards and floors are finished in period appropriate

linoleum panels, and the seats

are beautifully trimmed in black leather showing virtually no signs

of use since the restoration was completed in 2011. The sale will include both the jump-seat rear

deck as well as the spare-wheel carrier, which can be changed

over for the full road-racer effect.

     

Offered for $650,000

full and partial trades
