Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste... not!
My name is Paul from Columbus Ohio, and I'm a disabled, retired tech. And an old gear head.
looking to convert my 72 SAAB Sonett race car to EV.
I rebuilt it (stock ) in 2001 . Street driven and raced it Scca solo stock. Slowly modified it to modified and prepared solo racing only. Later, decided it needed power steering, so, more power! The plan was to tube frame it, rwd, with a 350 Chevy v8, r4 tranny.
Almost complete, it has become apparent that it has been a failed attempt to fit it all in. AND, still have room for one, let alone two humans!
Now, I'm thinking EV! Rwd. Transmission?
Any suggestions? No , really. .
I'm mechanically capable. Follow instructions easily. Funds? Somewhat limited. But if another project vehicle combination would be the best way? I'm good with that!
Anyone in or near Columbus Oh, wanting to sell, or ? Trade? Combine projects?
Goals? Street driven, but not daily. Fast enough to embarrass the kids down the street with their fart can Hondas, quick enough to make passengers pee their pants!
Electric experience? I can rebuild starters and alternators. I can wire a car or a house.
Care to help? Have some gear to sell?
Let me know, thanks Paul
