Tell the world a little bit about your vehicle
Bought the car off a guy that had started converting it to a drag racer about 30 years ago, then lost interest in the project. It sat in his garage for 25 year until he finally put it up on Craigslist. I found it there, in pieces, and have slowly been bringing it back to life since.

Engine/Drivetrain Modifications:
It came without an engine. I found a used electric motor on Ebay (came from a decommissioned Baltimore City bus) and I have converted the car to 100% electric drive.

Wheels/Tires Modifications:
Rear end off a Lincoln Versailles; four-wheel disc brakes; Shelby drop (modifications done prior to me owning the car).
Torque Thrust D wheels.

Interior/Exterior Modifications:
Too many to list, but I've attempted to keep the look mostly stock, with retro look/feel.
