Converting an EV in 90 Secs! (Time lapse)
I found this fun video on Metacafe.

A guy put a web cam in the corner of his garage to film a time-lapse of him converting a Metro to Electric.

Love how it's screencapped from youtube and posted on metacafe, :p.

Do you know where the original link is or who the guy is?

Found the same video at YouTube:

Yeah, somehow Metacafe has magic software that "borrows" videos from YouTube and shows them on their own web page!

I tried leaving a message for the poster inviting him to Ecomodder, but I always have bad luck posting messages in YouTube.

YouTube won't let you post URLs in comments, I don't think.

Anyway, his 2nd video is pretty funny, in an EV nerd sort of way. The YT preview image gives away the punch line though:

(P.S. Ben: I'll do the Metafilter embed enable tonight.)

Laugh all you want!

I actually DID hook up a cordless drill to my Metro transmission, to try to roll the car (uphill) into the garage.

WAY too much torque! There was no way I could hold onto the drill.

I would imagine that level ground makes it much easier to work!
