He identifies as a car-repair channeler, but he spent so much time getting the car and driving it home that the video is just about the trip.

He says he will do a full review tomorrow and there must only be 50 of these in the world.

Full review. He goes back and forth between praising and criticizing it. He says that he will restore it and he said that a lithium swap would be affordable, so hopefully he makes it better than new:

Lithium swap is affordable for whom? Any mass storage is getting pretty expensive, almost enough to consider going back to floodies

I don't know. He talks a lot. It is all he does.

JR rebuilt his [AC] motor

It didn't seem like much, but what have I done today?

Find a factory service manual for my Camry and look up two parts.

[I did see 3 clients]

I wonder what he paid for it after it changed hands and got a fresh set of batteries. Here's the offer up ad for the same car in 2019. Ignore the "1995 Chevrolet Cavalier" listing and the "4 cylinder manual trans" description. :

He says it has 50,000 miles--and a 50-mile range.

He adjusted a pulley, repainted three wheels, greased a bunch of stuff--one of the windows didn't want to open, and then he drove a whopping 30 miles on one charge.
