Earthx Expo, known as the country’s largest green gathering, is also becoming a haven for car lovers. As major automotive brands have made the switch to EV and Alt Fuel, they are eager to demonstrate the responsiveness and pep available in the new makes and models.
The free EarthX Expo at Dallas Fair Park April 19-21 will play host to the EarthX Electric Vehicle & Alternative Fuel Ride & Drive. Guests can also meet Reverend Gadget, Greg Abbott, (not the Texas Governor, but host of EarthX TV’s Reverend Gadget’s Garage).
Gregory Abbott, known professionally as Reverend Gadget, is a steel fabrication artist, craftsman, prop builder and television personality based in Los Angeles, California. He is best known to television audiences as part of the build team on the short-lived Discovery Channel series Big! More recently, he has been part of the series Monster House and Smash Lab. He is currently working with EarthxTV on his own series, Reverend Gadget’s Garage, in which he shows his advocation for alternative energy sources by converting gasoline-powered vehicles to electricity.
Abbott took the name “Reverend Gadget” to reflect both his craftsman works and the fact that he has been an ordained minister since 1986. According to his website, he currently holds 10 Guinness World Records for his works, some of which were with the Big! build team. He was interviewed in the documentary Revenge of the Electric Car.
