My name is Joe, and I want to build an electric Jeep.
I'm planning to build either a vintage Willys pickup or a seriously beat up '79 CJ-5 I have lying around. I have every intention of building it out of stuff that's lying around, keeping costs to a minimum.
I really got the "cheapskate" idea after I cobbled up my first SVO/Biodiesel processor and system on my now sold 1991 Ford F-250. You really can make anything from anything with enough ingenuity and spare parts.
Then, I met a guy at Septemberfest '08 in Omaha who built his own electric motorcycle from mostly used and salvaged parts. He can be found at www.firstontop.com
. Neat fella.
Wish me luck, and I'll see you around.
