This EV conversion was a joint project between Gerhard Wagner and EV
List members John Wayland and Lou Tauber. It resulted in an EV that
accelerates nicely, corners very flat, has killer brakes, and retains
all the fun and excitement of Ford's original pony car, only now it
doesn't drip oil and runs cleaner than a new car.
