It won’t be long now that teens will find these affordable used electric cars that have been discarded like a used up battery and will give them a new life with a retrofitted gas or diesel engine conversion.

I did several Oldsmobile diesel to gas engine conversions and also a couple of Jaguar V12 to Chevy small block conversions.

If nothing else a person could stick one on top of a pole and connect a propeller to it for a wind generator.

Or a millwheel from a running stream, up here in Alaska I would say it would make a great towing vehicle for the dog sledders in training, plus it will charge up a battery bank for the remote site cabins by doggy power.

Heck the Leaf is such a dinky car I bet that you could do a gas conversion for it with a two-stroke motor. Heck, use the engine from a Citroen 2CV.
