Just browsing some old episodes of Jay Leno's Garage and what do you know? Although some number of GM's EV-1 are in museums, at least one of them is still in private hands.
I've always fancied that if I had owned an EV-1 in the nineties I would have hopefully had the brass to hide it away somewhere when GM came looking to retrieve and crush it. And it seems that is exactly what film maker, wine maker, and electric car buff Francis Ford Coppola did. That's "Ford" as in taken from the car maker.
In a forward looking episode covering cars of the future Coppola shows Leno a garage full of extremely rare and cool cars, including an EV-1.
The electric car segment begins at 8:00. The EV-1 segment begins at 13:30.
