Roanoke College students converting '39 Pontiac to electric drive
The goal is get the Pontiac Silver Streak running on a battery-electric powertrain by 2014, and for the vehicle to then be used for school purposes. Before that happens, the car is being stored in the garage of Roanoke College President Michael Maxey, though there's already a town vs. gown element going on. The Roanoke, Virginia Museum of Transportation wants to exhibit the car during winter months.
