The Hollidaysburg High School Student wanted to upgrade his ride, so he pulled all of the mechanical elements out of his car and tossed them aside. Shane converted his car to run on electricity. "I looked up on line... read a bunch of articles and figured out how to do it," he said.
Shane used 24 golf cart batteries to power the car, but it doesn't run like a golf cart. "I've had it up to 70 miles an hour it will go a little bit faster not much," Shane told Central PA Live.
