I've been lurking on and off for years. I've been fascinated with ForkenSwift. I have 7 Geo Metros, and I have finally decided to convert one to electric.

Yup, and the ones that aren't in junkyards have frame/body rust beyond belief, and people STILL want $2000 for a non-running one.

Are you kidding? I just found you this mint condition one in all of 1 minute, and it runs! I'm not crazy about the paint scheme though, but for $200, it's hard to complain....

LOL - I needed that...

I'm searching Alternator to Motor conversions, to see what I can do with some old crap alts I have laying around, and I was starting to get a little worked about it.

Thanks for the laugh.

Thank you! But you NEED 7, to make sure your bases are covered. I wouldn't be ready for a conversion if I didn't have a backup....

Welcome to EM! I'll bet you fit all those Metros into a single car garage. Just stack them on top of each other.
