Young Not Discouraged By Fire

The November fire attributed to a malfunction in the charging unit for his prototype near zero emission car that destroyed a warehouse and damaged a treasure trove of archived materials has not deterred Neil Young from his mission to change the automotive industry.  Putting a positive spin on the calamity, Young quipped, 'Barn's burnt down. Now I can see the moon.' On a more serious note Neil observed, 'On a project like this, setbacks happen for a reason', and went on to proclaim that his Lincvolt will be '...ready for the next chapter and the next ride' after replacement of the diesel-electric hybrid power plant that drives his massive 1959 Lincoln Continental down the road at a conventional logic defying 80 miles per gallon.
