Yes, the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant has two lines - from 97-2002, one was Prowlers and one was Vipers. When they discontinued the prowler in February 2002, both lines were used to double the Viper production.

Time to rejuvenate that Plymouth Prowler... drive it to Duke's Garage in Denver and let the lads convert it into a lithium battery powered direct drive vehicle.

As they always say at Duke's Garage:
"Cars with a history... and a future."

Check out the conversion of a 1965 Mustang convertible into an "Electric Pony" - an Earth-friendly classic complete with recycled foam filled hemp seats.

It sounds like you must have been doing something with that hemp other than sitting on it.

Just how heavy is the Prowler? I thought that they were kind of porky for a two seater. Not what you want for a battery powered car per se, imo.

2775 pounds.

Note that on the Tesla Roadster, the batteries are over 900 pounds, 1/3 the weight of the car
That's alot of AA batteries![/quote]

6,831 of them slightly larger than AA's (like the type in laptop computers)[/quote]

Okay. I can live with that.

I wonder if we'll be able to buy them at a quantity discount when Home Depot starts to carry them... :bag:

Then we can watch our neighbours go up in fireballs. :D

Those 18650 Li-Ion cells are tricky to rebuild. Too much heat from soldering and they go boom.
