Somehow I don't think it will have the unique sound you get with an inline 6 and a set of Fentons and dual exhaust...

ptv, good point. I have often thought there could be a market for an after market sound maker to mimic the sound of a gasoline engine. Sound would vary with engine speed. Take your pick of sound: Ferrari, Mustang, Jag, etc. Plus, it would add a safety factor as the electric motor vehicles are very quiet and pedestrians are not always when one is approaching.

I'm guessing this car can not be brought back to original without major $$.
Maybe this one would be candidate for electrocution, or defibrillator?

I would go hydrogen .. My dad always talked about a single cell for his 12.

Pack Don. I brought up motor v engine few years ago.

Even wrote Leno about it. He caught himself sometimes. Now he will still refers to an engine as a motor.

This ev is b.s. for low income. Look at the cost of batteries...

Then what pay hazard fee to get rid of them .
.
The big push for solar. You only get 20 percent use out of them.. And that's high end panels..

Environmentalists. Have just f.d up this country.

Lacquer.. It evaporates.. It's gone.. It's not in the atmosphere.. The smell is not. Hazardous. Off gazing . it's evaporating..
