I talked with Dave Cloud on the phone a little while back. He has done a LOT of conversions!

I was hoping to get him to the Mother Earth Fair with that car. He didn't make it, but some of the other local EV guys were there, and described how he just showed up one time with the Dolphin at a meeting, without ever giving a hint of the project before just driving up with it!

While that is super-aero, I don't think it's the sort of thing the movie makers are looking for. They want something still somewhat "normal", and kinda cool in the traditional car sense.

A friend of mine has a Lithium El-Camino that can burn rubber in each gear - I'm thinking of something similar to that.
