Homemade Electric Car

Well, here’s one answer to the high price of gasoline. A self-described computer geek from Kennedale, TX bought the 1993 Eagle Talon from a junkyard for just $750, pulled the engine and spent about $4,000 to convert the gas-guzzler to run on electricity alone doing all the work himself in his garage at home. The car can hit 55 mph and costs less than $10 per month on electricity to charge the batteries — enough to go about 300 miles.
