Nope, NOT your kind of eco-modding...

...not to your usual expectations, but it is a very intriguing & interesting example of 'electro-mods', electric conversions of classic muscle cars. No more loping cam/idle sounds, popping burbles, no more accelerator blips, and no more sweet 'rich' aromas from classic V-8s but now they even have faster straight lines...

Looks fun!

I'd love to do an EV conversion on my '51 Ford F1, but it costs way too much much and I'd never drive the truck in Wisconsin winters.
