Yes, I agree. And it was beautiful. You can't take the joy away from me. Nope, you can't.

Call me crazy but I'd like to get home with my truck too! Makes it easier to carry the bailing wire, duct tape and minimal tools. LOL

Right now the batteries for conversions are pretty limited, everybody uses lead acid due to the cost. But on the bright side battery technology is advancing quickly, so it is only a matter of time before better range and more capacity is available in a smaller and lighter package as well as an affordable price.
A Rampage would make an ideal foundation for an electric conversion. You lose the engine and the gas tank, and can put batteries in place of those. You should have some bed space left. If I am guessing right there is some empty space beneath the bed behind the can too (like in the Ranchero). I would be utilizing this space for batteries too.

Awesome car! I have been out of racing for so long the cars have changed dramatically. I hardly even watch racing on TV anymore. Heck, I didn't even watch Indy this year!
