. Late-60's sports/muscle car - Mustang, Camaro, Charger, ... it doesn't really matter which one. . I'm currently working on my '67 Mustang coupe's transmission (big-block top-loader) and rearend (3.25 9"). Both of those go behind a Mexican 302 block (289 internals, but a longer stroke is on my to-do list).

My absolute dream car is what you said but converted to electric. I think a 60s/70s muscle car would make a good electric donor car- big engine bay for batteries, rear wheel drive, solid suspension to deal with the weight of all that lead... and they are still cool after 40 years :) The few that are around turn heads here anyway, being twice the size of the average Brit car, so a nearly silent one (adding to the "boat" feel) would be incredibly fun... just don't take it on narrow streets...

Weight distribution! If at all possible, the batteries should be placed near the center of the car, and down low. By placing the batteries under the hood, you move weight to the front axle, reducing the traction on the rear wheels while making it harder to steer.* *Harder to steer unless you put in power steering, which is a pain.

This is a good point. Really I meant that older American cars aren't quite as compacted as modern Europeans ones and (I would imagine) have larger internal spaces more suited to fitting batteries in.

I've got a close friend in Searcy that's into Stangs. All he does is '64 to '67. He's an elderly gentleman who'll talk your ear off, but he really knows his Mustangs. If you hit any roadblocks, I'd be glad to put you onto him. He haS 2 convertibles and a fastback in primo condition and about 6 or 7 others in various stages of restoration.

It's some kind of big-tired off-road low-down electric go-kartish tricycle (2 wheels in front, one in back).

Among other things, i'd also like body panels and skid plates made out of this (http://www.robotmarketplace.com/products/WCC-SNDH0201132.html), a homopolar motor inside each wheel, super-capacitors instead of batteries, magnetic shocks and springs, and tweel airless tires (the big fat knobbly ones anyway).

Hmmm... I wonder how much that would cost... better not even think about it.

Or maybe just a street-legal electric F1. No forgetting the homopolar motors and the poly-propylene honeycomb carbon-fiber sandwich body though.
