But what did he say

Ford is selling Mach-E crate motors to promote custom EV conversions like this F-100 concept – Electrek:

In a recent press release, Ford has unveiled a unique concept vehicle that consists of a 1978 F-100 pickup electrified using Ford Performance’s Eluminator electric crate motors. That’s the same motor in Ford’s 2021 Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition.

The $3,900 electric motor is now available to the public, should any EV enthusiasts with the proper conversion knowledge want to create a custom vehicle of their own. Although, you’ll still need to acquire an inverter, battery pack, and control system.

This is super cool.. It sounds like they’re going to follow with turnkey battery/control systems to match, which makes it even more exciting for conversion projects.

U.S. cops race to hit 1000-kill target for year | Boing Boing:

After shooting, beating, choking and kicking their way to 1,021 kills last year and 2019’s near-miss count of 999, U.S. police officers are racing to bring 2021’s death toll over the the line: Statista reports this week that police killed 716 civilians in the first nine months of 2021. They’ll need a busy Christmas season to make it, though, especially with turnout depressed by anti-vaccine politics.
