Electric Karman Ghia

The Karman Ghia is a car that is rightfully considered a classic.  People spend large sums of money on keeping them in working order and as close to or better than the condition in which they left the factory.  One I saw at Exotics@RTC had taken things a different way.  It had been converted into an electric vehicle.

The owner had everything open to inspect with the batteries and control electronics fitted in to the available space within the car.  I would imagine that a car as light as a Karman Ghia would, when given the power and instant torque of an electric drivetrain, go like stink!  It was certainly attracting a lot of attention.  Getting a photo of it without people all around it proved impossible.  After a while of waiting, I concluded that the attention was really part of the story so accepted that it should have a lot of people in the photo.
