Ode to the Electric Car
I am very interested in the idea of the electric car. The design possibilities are endless. The latest performance electric vehicles are quite impressive. The little Datsun "White Zombie" is awesome down the quarter mile. White Zombie was recently upgraded from lead to lithium batteries, saving SEVERAL hundred pounds. The British Lightning is awesome, as well as expensive. The Tesla roadster is too small for me, but still quite impressive.
I do not like the edgy designs of cars with too many straight lines. Nor do I like the "jelly bean" look of all rounded corners. I yearn for the classic lines of the 275 GTB Ferrari, 246 Dino, and 250GT Ferrari. I like swoopy fenders that blend into the doors and bulging rear fenders housing the big rear wheels. The Shelby Cobra is awesome, but it is also too small for a big 6'2" guy. I like the look of the covered headlights. Lke the Shelby Daytona, not the exposed headlights of the AC Ace look of the Cobra.
The dawn of Lithium batteries with ceramic casings has allowed reduced weight with a more compact design. I want a Mega Amp ride that looks like a classic Ferrari. Please, please, please don't make me settle for mundane design. If I have to, I will take a Nissan Leaf apart and make my own design complete with swoopy fenders.

very nice car 5s
your ride is pretty flippin awsome.lol. i wish i had the money to put in it! lol
Hey! Thanks for the comment! I've actually had a small budget (and great credit), just added a little at a time for past 6 years.
How do you like the 4.88 gears. I have 3.73 and thats plenty low enough for me
4.88 gears are only recommended if you are a Crazy SOB that disregards practicality and good sense. But I can accelerate to 172 mph @ 7200 RPM in 5th. Gas mileage sucks, constantly changing gears, and can not trust ANYONE to drive my COBRA (need complex algorithm to calculate downshift points). But if you Shift Like a God (of course I do!) it can be FUN!
nothing looks better than black, just a pain to keep clean keep up the mods i know what u mean by paying off then using the extra money for mods, i just payed mine off and just ordered my wheels, 5*'s
5 stars deff. Check out my ride
