OK so $140,000 for a handmade car is not something I would consider, but I love the idea of having a classic car, or a simply body shell, made into an EV car..I believe that you can buy an electric Beck Speedster, so keep them coming!!

I'm going to both agree and disagree with you about the Neon...at the 1994 (I believe) Philadelphia Auto Show my friend and I saw the Neon when it was introduced and fell in love. He bought a 95 Sport in June 1994 and I custom ordered a 95 Sport in June 1995. My car was ordered from the factory as a 4 door sport with a 5 speed manual. I believe that I paid $13k, which for me was a high price at the time. I learned to drive stick on that car and I have to say that it was an amazing car for me. My car did have power windows (which never broke), and a basic interior, but it always looked new and never fell apart. I had a sunroof installed and that was about it. I loved that car. I went 72k miles before I needed to replace my front brake pads and 77k before I needed to replace my back brake pads! When the car was totaled early in 2002, I still had the original clutch! I had often said that if they made a convertible Neon I would have been simply bought another one. On a side note, my friend's car didn't fare as well as mine, and was plagued with problems from day one. I guess I was one of the lucky ones....now if I could only stomach life with an old Alfa spyder!!
