Electric VW Bus Part 1
Stupid WMG...who likes them? yeah, nobody. I'm workin on gettin a new song.
So, here's my 1974 Volkswagen Bus. I spent my whole life savings, a whopping $600, on this beast. It was my 13th birthday present to myself. When I got it, the motor was sitting between the front seats and was in pretty bad shape. That's when I decided, mostly because of the shot motor, and because I was a stupid teenager, to convert it into an electric vehicle. The project went slowly until high school, and I made the mistake of not taking very many pictures in the beginning, but here it is. It's turning out very well, despite being done on a high schoolers budget. More on the actual conversion will come in the future. YAY!!!
