After 10 days underwater the car works after wiping off the mold and jumping it. This is amazing.
Good to know it's sealed.
Probably isn't waterproof to 20,000 leagues under the Sea, but we'll take it!
It must have been in 007 mode.
Hypothetically crazy question (or not):
If one were to harvest (Frankenstein-style), battery parts, wiring, UPC connector and computer(s) and somehow retrofit them into a classic car after removal of fuel tank and engine (replaced with electric motor), could that classic car use a supercharger?
Don't see why not. SuCh would see it as the old MX/MS/M3.
Good luck transplanting all that hardware.
I'd never try it. I don't have that skill set, but some folks do...
I think the trick would be to get the battery cooling lines correctly installed.
But geez, I'd love to see some old classic cars electrified.
Black 1966 Camaro
1 problem. Can the '66 suspension handle all that power?
Straight line? Sure....cornering?? Might be kinda dicey.
Thanks for the link. I guess I did not see the news in main stream media because the battery worked.
There has never been a 1966 Camaro. First model year was 1967.
That picture looks like a 1969 Camaro.
If you've ever done any diving you will see how water distorts images. It also makes things look 30% bigger underwater.
Rather amazing that it booted up. The downside is all the connectors and electronics that were in water throughout the car may corrode and start to intermittently fail after 3-6 months. Getting the mold out will also be quite a task. This is often why flooded cars (ICE or EVs) are usually totaled. It will make a great body for another donor car, but if I remember right, $20K seems to be alot for a usable body. The key is if the main battery remained sealed, then the $20K might make some sense. Some submerged cars have had water intrusion in the battery pack, which is really bad.
