White Zombie: Little Electric 1972 Datsun

White Zombie is the nickname given by John Wayland to his 1972 Datsun with two forklift electric motors swapped into it. The car draws a charge off of 36 12-volt batteries placed in the trunk and back seat. With the two electric motors White Zombie can do a 11.9 second 1/4 mile at 109 mph. The real benefit the electric motor gives is the instant torque off the line. White Zombie can do 0-60 in 3 seconds! Wayland is also credited with helping establish the National Electric Drag Racing Association after many dragstrips started banning electric motor based cars because of a lack of safety standards for electric based cars. He helped draft many current safety rules dealing with drag racing electric motor based cars.
