Vehicles? A buddy of mine has owned a 1950 Chevrolet since the late 1960's. Over they years he has hot rodded it-new engine, 4 speed floor shift tranny-to replace the original 6 cylinder 3 speed on the column. Lots of other goodies. He is now concerned that no one in the family wants his car when he passes on. He has a 30 year old son who told Dad he had no interest. Until my friend suggested they convert it to electric power. Now the kid is all jacked about this. Why? I know battery powered vehicles have instant power, but really. This is what gets you worked up? And the car companies are falling all over themselves to promote battery powered cars. By why get excited about a classic car running on batteries?
