NEBULA

the car

A white 2005 Ford Taurus SEL. One of the more common cars on the road today.

A proof of concept. The goal is to convert this one for UNDER $2,000 USD.

The vehicle was purchased running and driving with a Salvage Auction title for $300 USD.

I will be using www.openinverter.org to hack the motor.
