Hello, Depending on what your goals are from having a hybrid (i.e. saving gas vs. saving environment), you may want to reconsider the conversion. It will be expensive, and the gas savings will not balance out the work. However, if it's the environment you're out to save, I recommend checking out this site for some conversion kits: http://www.ecobusinesslinks.com/hybrid_conversion.htm Best of luck! CarGrrl

wasn't worred about saving gas, i was not changing the drive train. it's the same in a tbird, and a lincoln. what i was toying with is changing the front clip, and the deck lid (trunk), making it a cross between a bird and a mark.and what to name her? markbird? linbird? thundermark?i'm pertty sure if i change the header and hood, that should woek. the front fenders are the same. the deck lit is something to really think about. do i cut the wheel off a linc and weld to the bird lid, or change the deck lid, and the lower header by the lock? any idea's would be welcome.
