Electric cars seem to be the future, if you believe Mr. Elon Musk and Tesla anyway. But if you prefer driving classic cars would substituting an electric drivetrain be sacrilege? Obviously this ruins a car's originality, but what if you have a body and chassis lacking a drive train? Should this relegate a car to sculpture or, worse yet, the crusher? Why not give it a second life? There are a number of companies thinking along similar lines and building electric cars based on classics such as Zelectric Bug and Kriss Motors.
