    Glenn, does it have its own transmission?

    Yes the Tesla motors have their own reduction gearbox. The “baby” Tesla motor kit that I posted the link to puts out around 200-300hp. I have heard rumors that the larger 400-500 hp motor would fit but probably would need modifications

    I have for years had a dream of building an electric powered, chopped,  Karmann Ghia drag car. Kind of stopped dead in the water by lack of funds, knowledge, and physical dexterity. Still a fun dream though.

    Think the “65 might see some track time ?

    Dan called us out on the late model package tray/firewall we ordered. He asked to find a correct donor, man of principal!

    Found one in the car Dan used for the ragtop section we grafted into his oval window.

    Removed from donor car and bits dissected yesterday.F3C334E5-1996-4C85-8477-BDAD31D712CE841BC6EF-78F0-49A3-8A0D-A38CE7AB59E73A531927-0AD0-4D7E-8B03-649A3442544A

    Just finished sand blasting donor section until I ran out of sand. Not completely cleaned up but good enough for install. Will finish blasting when metal repairs on the shell are completed. 2B7FE32F-B04C-41DE-9303-EA4C58EFDEFB

    You da Man Pat! Beautiful work.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.
