Default Aptera at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry

This weekend, my wife, son and I visited the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. One of their exhibits is called "Fast Forward . . . Inventing the Future". When I went through the exhibit, I was pleasantly surprised to find an Aptera on display. Given that Aptera is now out of business, and I had never seen one in person, I was pleased to stumble across this. It is roped off, but you can get up pretty close to it. I reached across the rope barrier and discovered that the passenger door wasn't locked, affording me the chance to open the gull wing door.

Cheers,
Bryan

It's a shame that company wasn't managed better. I wanted one of those to be on display in my garage . . .
