Seating CapacityThis now a 2 seater
Conversion TimeA lot of time reading and researching. Almost 3 months. The
conversion only took about a month of weekends and nights.
Conversion CostI think I am a little over $9,000 for the car and the major
stuff.... but all the little stuff is starting to add up.
I want to convert another one! I did this with my dad and we had a lot of fun. We are
still talking about the conversion and how he wants to do one now too. However, my
wife told me that I can't start a new one until I sell this one. She is only letting me have
one car at a time. So.....

This car is FOR SALE!
$11,000 obo
