It can be done! At the Moment Motor Company in Austin, Texas, turning your classic car into an electric vehicle is a project taken on every single day. Walter Gefrom discusses this weird mashup:
EVs are growing in popularity each year. And it’s no surprise why, especially with the way these gas prices are only continuing to soar! But what about retrofitting a classic car for an EV battery install? It can be done, and at the Moment Motor Company, it’s done every day. But should it be? As a classic car connoisseur, Walter Gefrom is a bit torn on this one. While it’s certainly cool and very interesting, it does take away key components of what makes a classic… well, a classic! Will retrofitting these vehicles for EV engines make them last longer? Possibly. But the ride that’s so beloved by so many collectors simply will not be the same — for better, or for worse. Walter can definitely see a lot of purists having issues with this one. How do you feel?
