Corbin Sparrow

A ‘Bad Ride’ Menlo-style

by Chris Gulker on September 7, 2009

Nope, it’s not a pimped-out Cadillac Escalade. It’s not a (ho-hum) Porsche Turbo Carrera, or even an Aston Martin DB-9, that turns heads in Menlo Park. It’s Menlo FD’s Peter Carpenter’s bright yellow Corbin Sparrow that turns heads on Santa Cruz Avenue.

The Sparrow (now known as the NmG) is an electric one-seater that can do 80 MPH. Peter uses it for personal transportation, and loves its low carbon footprint and fun performance as he cruises (permanently) past the local gas stations.
