That was actually how I found it It was such a random thing because I’d uh I’d seen it on Craigslist And I emailed the seller he didn’t respond and get back to me, and then I tweeted about it being like All I want is this car.

I have one for sale, and I was like dude I’ve been trying to get ahold of you forever, and there’d been like a bug in Craigslist So he hadn’t gotten my emails I had such a nice, “Oh my god I love the Internet moment” where it kind of just put me together with the guy who is selling the car and here we are.

  1. You should TOTALLY do a motor/battery swap/update on this car to make it really drivable. (To be honest, it should also get a ride suspension and roll cage update as well, to be safe).

    Imagine that car with, say, a 15kwh battery pack, a more efficient electric motor and updated suspension. Could be cool, practical and actually much safer!

  2. I honestly couldn’t stop looking at your ear piercing I thought it was a level (green bubble level)

  4. Good for you, not getting some big car! Also, holding off on driving as soon as possible!
    What an awesome car!!!!!!!

  5. I remeber these…. Awesome looking car…. Not so awesome driving… Would be cooler with modern batteries and drivetrain…

  6. “I’m not getting a Tesla”

    Anyone else watching this after she got a tesla and turned it into a pickup truck?


  7. Such a vehicle would meet my needs beautifully. Well, I guess uglily would be more accurate; it is not a pretty car.
    I live in a place that's cold and snowy in winter, and stifling hot for much of the summer. Is this car equipped to deal with such conditions?

  8. My dad did some repair work on one of these in the late 70's. He drove me around the neighborhood a few times and I thought it was cool as hell.
