Hi everyone. Building an EV has fascinated my for about a year now and have been navigating around this forum for some time now trying to get a feel for the EV world. I'll be quite honest - It flat scares me!
I have an exceptionally high mechanical aptitude but the lingo and terminology is over my head.
My first question to all who have researched, started, are in the middle of, or have finished an EV project (aka... everyone on here:)) what books can I get my hands on to get me started on an EV venture?

I am wanting to build a car that can travel 40 miles @ 70 MPH. I live 27 miles from work that is uncongested interstate and there are plenty of 110 volt outlets available for use on the exterior of the building that I work at.

I have a Triumph TR7 w/ a 4 speed that looks pretty good from my stand point as a base platform to start with. I believe the weight is just over 2000 lbs. and pretty aero dynamic(?). What are everyones thoughts on this car? and are these goals achievable?

Thanks in advance to all :)
