AMA I'm Adam Roe, Founder, CEO, and Product Architect of Zero Labs, a Startup Company That Turns Classic Cars Into Fully-Electric Vehicles. AMA!

Hello Reddit! In 2015, I left the advertising industry and assembled a dedicated team of engineers, prototype manufacturers, and aerospace fabricators to focus on one problem: committing to clean energy while not abandoning the past. Since then, we've developed a complete electric platform made specifically for transforming the most beloved classic gasoline and diesel vehicles into clean energy classics like our fully electric first generation Ford Bronco. We've also restored custom 1960s-era Mustangs, Land Rover Defender 110s, and Porsche 911s -- which you can check out in my recent interview with MEL Magazine, our website or our Instagram.

In the meantime, I'm here to answer anything about electric cars, refurbishing classic cars, and anything else that comes to mind -- AMA!
