Post Thoughts on........
There seems to be quite a bit of chatter online about the future of old/classic/vintage cars and the possibilities of converting to full electric (EV). I love the sound and feel of the 2CV flat-twin and would never want to go down that route myself, but I think there is another option that could improve the car in the eyes of the greenies and improve the driving experience. What's the forum's thoughts on fitting a Belt Integrated Starter Generator, and would there be space under the bonnet to fit one in place of the original alternator? There's also the little matter of finding one on the market that would work for a 2CV. Your (honest) thoughts gentlemen, please.
