While not my taste you have to respect the work that went into it... This wasn't exactly a clugefest...

^^^ that's probably enough power to coast down out of the trailer, then power up and roll (eventually) into the showroom where the car is being displayed.

Personally, I like to DRIVE my cars, but I can't fault anyone for the amount of work that went into this monstrosity. (Still not my taste, but whatever.)

You have to know about electric vehicles to know that's a big motor for a car that size. It used to be about 1hp per 1000-1500 lbs would move the car pretty good.

<edit> You know... It might have been something like 3-4hp per 1000 lbs... Having trouble finding my old data sheets and some conversion sites seem to be using 20-30ish hp motors now (I remember looking at 10-15 hp motors when I was planning a conversion a while back).
