REPU for sale...well sort of I guess...

You'll have to search down for it.

Unbelievable. I'm just trying to find one that doesn't need a miracle to make it road-worthy and you've got ppl hacking the heart and soul out of them! Gah!

Why would anyone replace the rotary with Electric?! I have a hard enough time with piston conversions, but electric?

I've always had the opinion that rotary conversions should be done only to bigger and better rotaries... or rotaries that replace piston engines...

That is just so awful! How can anybody be so cruel? And to top things off it only goes 67mph for 45 miles before it needs a charging again. That wouldn't get me much further than work and home each day.

I thought my truck had a bad conversion, I guess I waas wrong. That really sucks. Too bad they didn't just restore the truck instead of spending all that money to convert....
Let this be an example for all of us. People who don't love rotaries should not be allowed to own them.

Especially not a rare REPU!

...but we can all guess how this happened...some idiot ruined the motor and it burned too much oil, I bet... Now, I love my old rotaries--don't get me wrong, this does sicken my heart--but there IS something to be said for zero-emissions... this individual simply needs to be educated about what's appropriate and what's not. That kinda conversion can (obviously) be done to just about ANY chassis--not a 16,000-or fewer-ever-made rarity. Why don't we find him a B-series truck to trade/swap out his electric car crap into, so we can take that beautiful 'ol bod off his hands??? While we're at it, someone better explain to him that the wankel rotary is an ideal candidate for such enviro-friendlier conversions as propane or hydrogen... and to remember that all that electricity came at great expense from somewhere, too... possibly a nuclear or coal-fired pollution plant. That ought make 'em think!
