After years of wanting to convert a car to EV I found a gem of a car in a junk yard. This 1990 Miata was in the yard for 2 hours and purchased for only $900 !! It has only 1 dent in the front fender and a slight tear in the top. The paint was 5 years old by the looks of it but still in great shape. Converting this to start a conversion company. If ElectroAutomotive's gearbox works I will be going single speed gearbox for all customer
and personal conversions. Let the fun begin!!! Now time to get some $$$$ in the
