    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?

    Need to develop a kit. An electric motor with VW driveshaft connection and a battery pack that fits in the gas tank cavity.
