Some people could not stand that my smoke blowin', full size car, with minimal mods and maximum class and comfort could beat their POS electric cars that can only go a few miles on a charge and look ridiculous.

The same cars that many "re-charge" using coal powered electric....yeah real good for the environment....The cars that use batteries made of rare earth metals that when mined and disposed of cause more harm to the environment that could ever be offset by the batteries use in a car.

Face it, hybrids and electric cars are used as a fashion statement....DIESEL IS THE ANSWER!

Hypocritical Hippies.....
Build Thread:
Current Mods: 2 tank WVO system, A/C delete, 1981 OM616 engine, 5 inch stack exhaust tip, in place of rear muffler. Sounds good.

Auxiliary coolant pump from W124-to circulate coolant better and make WVO warmer

I'm here to save money, not "mother" earth....

Planned Mods: Who needs a belly pan?
