I want that 300z

Hello, I want an electric car but don't have the money for a new one. I just can't wait any longer. The 300z project in the market place looks like a good deal to me.

I run E85 in my 01 civic coupe with a custom motor and would like to hybridize that for my commute. I like all of the manual controls and the body.

Just drive your car as is. You're not going to save more in gas than you spend on any conversion, you will need to buy a second car to drive, and a used EV is cheaper than a conversion.

Even that 300z needs $3000 (at least) in batteries. That car is a downpayment on a big spend and your time.

Keep buying gas at $5/gallon until you can replace your riced clunker with an EV.
