Litestar Pulse Network

HISTORY :
Tom Caprioli of Wisconsin, started to record his adventures with his Litestar after he purchased it in 1998 on an internet webpage. He continued to add his experiences to the website as he drove his vehicle. Several other Pulse owners found his website and Tom soon started an email forum which was hosted by Bill Costa.

In December of 2000, Steve Schmidt started the Litestar & Pulse Network, Pulse Message Board and VIN Database website.

Leo & Jan Doyle provide the webspace on their computer servers, which is a great gift.

A Message Board gives Pulse owners the ability to discuss repairs and maintenance quickly and has proven to be priceless.

The Litestar Pulse On-Line Website will provide a wealth of information for those owners who need assistance in maintaining their vehicles.

The greatest reason for the success is due to the owners who share their knowledge, pictures, literature and related experiences as to purchase, repairs and maintenance of their vehicles.

By combining all known information, a fantastic site which provides answers to the many questions about this amazing vehicle has been developed.

The Annual Rally provides owenrs the opportunity to meet personally and enhance the friendships developed over the internet, inspect other vehicles and return home to continue modifications on their own vehicles.

We invite you to join us at the next National Rally over Labor Day weekend in Marion, Indiana.
