New here with a goal to build an electric car...

Hi everyone,
My name is Bernd and I'm from Minnesota. I got the idea of building an electric car while looking at my old battery powered 3600 lbs Yale forklift. Batteries are dead but there is a motor... I'm not sure where to start here in the forum looking for advise especially on identifying the motor (9" dia x 14" ??) and what it takes to get it up to speed. I have an old Saab 900 w/ manual transmission which would make the donor car. I am happy for any guidance.
