I'd buy one for ***** and giggles. The Adverage daily commute for an American citizen is around 50 miles a day. I'm lucky to get 30 miles per day.

It's not worth the price their asking, you see a few on ebay once and awhile. I know there are a few companies that rebuild these things.

We used to work on those at Varsity Ford. We had this god awful huge hydraulic lift table just to get the batteries out of them. Someone should write that dude and tell him he's an ******* for asking $30k for the P.O.S.

I got to drive one a few years back, I didn't think it was all that bad. Had decent get up and go for an early electric vehicle.

Asking way to much for what it is, but to each his own

I remember a popular mechanics for kids when they did a show on the electric rangers... Pretty neat I think, and the 60miles would be fine for me.

Who knows.

Ford leased all of them when they were new. When Ford wanted them back, and the people leasing them found out they would be crushed, there were actually protests at some California dealers. Finally, Ford let people buy the trucks back, but not before they had already destroyed a good number of them.

They're certainly not for everybody, but they definitely have a loyal and dedicated following.
