I love stories like these. Thanks for share this one. I remember one where the boy was less technical but rebuilt cars with his dad. They bought a VW bug, stripped out the engine and modified it to fit golf cart batteries. The car went 40 miles per hour, was street worthy and the kit was in the $3000 range. He buffed up the exterior and voila a good car for school. He did this when he was 15 and his sister was 12 at the time. So, he found another old VW body and built one for her too. Care to circle? I will circle back.
