Buying a car

So I just had a temptation to buy a car.

Shocking, I know...

Someone recently posted on the caltech ev club mailing list that there was someone selling a US Electric Prizm. It's a company that took geo metro frames and converted them to electric. It probably needs new batteries, and possibly other work as well.

In good condition its range is probably about 50 miles on the freeway, a bit further on surface streets, aparently the regenerative braking works well.

Unfortunatly I don't have enough space for two cars and so if I got it I'd have to dispose of my gas powered car.

I wonder if it has an air conditioner and how hard it would be to add an interface to one of the EV chargers that the state of california had people install.
