I used to hate the old Hot Rod articles that would shout " 12 seconds for under $500", only to find out that the car was free, the turbo was found 'dirt cheap'on E-bay, the heads were found out in a field, the block was found cheap, and all the engine work was done by the guys brother.

Bad example, but I think you get my point.

Anyone can build a 'dirt cheap' EV if they are lucky enough to find the parts for 'dirt cheap'.

It would be much appreciated if all of you could please give 'real world' costs of the parts and labor, along with any special bargians that you post about.

Thanks
