Subject: What to do with old VW diesel cars.

1- Have VW remove engines, exhaust, fuel tanks

2- Let these shells be converted to electric vehicles.
(careful, don't allow ICE engines put back)
(perhaps give VW ZEV credits on these, if VW wants)
- who might/would buy these shells?
- Do It Yourself people
- existing electric conversion companies - EVwest is an example
- schools and colleges could take on a shop projects

Please help. Others may know better places to promote this idea. Conversion people could use these VW shells, yes?
