A sad day....

Postby aminorjourney » Mon Sep 17, 2007 7:00 am

Well folks, looks like the EV-minor project is dead :(

After a long and hard thought this weekend I have concluded that I just don't have the space to keep Hebe in my new house and so I think I will have to giver her away.

I'm really sad about it after all the stripping down but I don't see any other solution :(

Sad but sensible in the end!

Sad but sensible in the end as we discussed many times ;)

No point converting a pile of old junk anymore like I did. We need modern looking aerodynamic lightweight EV's that inspire people. :wink:

Nope I think its very sensible Nikki, as Peter says converting old stuff dosnt really give the EV world a great look, its generally not very good anyway as the vehicles are designed to be powered by a ICE so they are not exactly thought out for an EV.

Sell the bits and use the money to go towards something tastey or use it to buy some Li-ions for my Berlingo :lol:
