EV Karma - 1971 Karmann Ghia

I recently had an opportunity to buy an electric car. Pictures follow. The car is a beautifully restored 1971 Karmann Ghia and the story goes that the restorer, upon finishing the restoration, decided to make it electric rather than put in a gas engine. The electric system isn't the best so I plan to redo the conversion over time.

As it stands -- it has a D&D ES-15A motor running at 72 volts. This is a Brushed DC series wound motor. Alltrax controller and a 72 volt pack of huge flooded lead acid batteries.
