That doesn't surprise me in BC, talk of no new gas vehicles sold in Canada by 2035. I will be buying my 2034 Dodge Challenger😁. Very few have converted old cars to electric. The big issue on the Prairies is distance. Until batteries prove their cold performance, -40 exposure for days on end and can go 500 km minimum, I don't see them being a great alternative here.

If a person was able to pick any Oldsmobile to covert to full electric , which car would it be ? maybe something big with lots of room for batteries ! might be my car ! full Electric would work for me as i do not drive far and the car sits most of the time .

Yeah, a mid 70's Delta 88 or 98 comes to mind, plenty of battery space. It would be super fast with the right electric motor. I would just miss the Olds V8 sound. Now maybe a recording matching throttle input needs to be developed for electric cars😉.

Jeff would you be able to post a link on this thread for the company you mentioned .
In Victoria people come on to your property and put notices on cars that look like they use a lot of fuel .The notices say you are killing the planet and you do not care about your kids to have a car like that . This city the cabs are full electric , city took away street parking for bike lanes and a lot of little E Vs that would fit into the trunk of my car , so my big car really stands out. I take EV cabs to go down town , the ride in a Tesla feels like a kids go cart !

Ah Hippy Dippy BC, they should keep their opinions to themselves. Remind me to never move out there.
