LincVolt Version 2.0 Update
A major update on the progress of LincVolt Version 2.0 on Lincvolt Gazette - Repowering the American Dream.
As you may recall, poor LincVolt v 1.0 suffered in a devastating fire while parked in Neil Young's warehouse last fall. And -- just as promised -- "Lincvolt rises Phoenix-like from the ashes, she still lives."
From LV Gazette:
The disastrous fire that destroyed LV1 has offered us an unbelievable opportunity to make improvements throughout the car in the LV2 version. These improvements will allow LV2 to boast superior performance and be even cleaner than LV1.
January and February have been busy months for the LincVolt project. We are restoring the body of LincVolt by carefully and selectively replacing damaged body parts in the original car. A 1958 donor car (a gift from my wife) with many identical parts is parked alongside LincVolt.
Under the direction of famed California hot rod builder Roy Brizio (Brizio Street Rods) LincVolt's 1959 body is being painstakingly restored at Camilleri's Auto Works back to its original condition.
In LV2 the dashboard's original Lincoln Continental instrument cluster is being repurposed to monitor the functions of the new 200 KW electric drive and 30 KW Capstone Micro Turbine power generation systems. We found that the original Lincoln instrumentation layout was superior in user friendliness to the one we had installed in LV1. Now we have a chance to improve that.

Good luck Project LincVolt Team!
