Check page 128 in the most recent issue of Mother Earth News (#212) and see they have pictured an Opel GT with plans to convert it to a hybrid. Hmmm. What do you all think? :confused: It sounds tempting...

its based on 70's lead acid battery technology so expect a big heavy bunch of batterys(10 to get a 110 volt supply) then you need to make a charging system for it (easyest would be a small diesel genny from a large camper/truck mounted up front (but please make an exhaust that does not sound like a fart can :D ) with the electric motor to run it direct mounted to a prop shaft to the torque tube (i dont think you could but an auto box might be a way to keep a normal gear action)next problem is the rear gear set ratios and what you would need to make the car move off at a reasonable speed and give a top end you can live with for direct drive ,junk the clutch pedal and a speed controller that is linear to replace the gas pedal job done :D

dam but its easy when you just type it LOL
