Looking for the ultimate DIY gift for the holiday season? Yeah, me too! How about building your own electric car? It won’t go more than 55 mph, and the seats happen to be green lawn chairs, but it will save you some money at the pump.

Anyhow, here’s a brief review: the Hammerhead Eagle i-Thrust is a road legal car/shed that started life as a TVR Chimaera and underwent quite a few modifications to become a 21st-century range-extender, all built for considerably less money than GM would spend… on biscuits.
