Retirement

Well the 1996 Civic LX EV was retired this week. After 7,000+ miles of EV service, the 8VGC batteries came to their end and it was time to move on. I was able to strip all the EV parts and sell off the shell a day later, for $500! I only paid $600 for the car 5 years ago so it did me well.


But my EV journey isn't over, it's just starting! All the EV parts are being reused into a 2001 Civic EX Coupe! I purchased a nice, running 2001 Civic EX Coupe for converting back in August and in a few months that will be converted, with a lot of improvements. I will be starting another blog shortly with that EV and posting all my adventures and new features it will have.

How well did the transmission work out? I am looking at using one in a Alfa Romeo spider. Please email me and let me know. Gcornelius112@gmail.com

$500 for the EV parts of a car which you bought for a low price and served you for so long? That was pretty awesome! You did a great job in utilizing the car and selling the EV parts afterwards. It’s really a win-win situation for you.
