Vehicle1977 Honda Accord
I have been planning on converting this car since 1998. My parents bought this car new in 1977 from a Honda dealer in San Antonio and this is the car I got my driver's license in 1979. I inherited the car in 1990 and drove it until 1998 when it lost compression in cylinder #3. I started to think about converting the car to electric. Conversion officially started 5-22-09
