Electric-Powered Dragster Blows By "Gassers"

Hot on the heels of Business Week's article on Tesla Motors, The Wall Street Journal has posted a fun read about electric-powered cars designed for drag strips.

One of the cars, the White Zombie, is a 1972 Datsun purchased for less than $585 in 1985 that has since been converted to electric power by Portland resident John Wayland. The White Zombie goes from 0 to 60 in 3 seconds! And it's been trouncing so-called "gassers" at a local drag strip. Click through for the story and some cool video of the White Zombie in action.

It was extremely interesting for me to read that post. Thank you for it. I like such topics and anything connected to them. BTW, why don't you change design :).
