Ah, if only saying it is so, made it so!

Personal observation tells me conversion activity is dying. Two years
ago, there were at least three professional/semi-professional
conversion/repair shops with in about 100 miles. Now, there are none.
To get EV conversion repair work done, I have to haul to Kansas. About
2400 miles for two round trips. I know of one very nice conversion
that should have sold for about $10K that went for $6K recently. I
know of at lease one other for sale very nice conversion that has had
no reasonable offers. I know of one conversion being done on
speculation that was abandoned due to poor sales prospects.

What's wrong? Fuel is too cheap. Two years ago I was expecting at
least $5 gasoline by now.

Dennis, it may turn out that you are right, but we will need unstable
oil supply and prices to REALLY stimulate conversions.
