Converting A Car To Battery Power

Are you seriously concerned about the environment? The energy needed to make a new car is equal to about 1000 gallons of gasoline -- which must be burned before you start driving. Have you considered the energy savings of converting a gasoline car to electric? A car that would otherwise go to the junk yard might be kept on the road by taking out the blown engine and putting in an electric motor. Instead of paying $20,000 plus for a hybrid car (which still needs gasoline), why not consider a dedicated electric car? Ampmobiles, Inc., in Lake Wyatt, South Carolina has been training teams of mechanics and your mechanic could be next. COST per converted car runs about $12,000.
