Neil Young Backed Eco Car Update

The decision not to follow through on plans to enter the Linc Volt  in the X Prize competition was not the end of the road for the enormous but fuel efficient vehicle backed by Neil Young.  The 3 year project to prove that one of the largest production cars ever made could be converted into one of the greenest cars on the planet continues in a garage in San Francisco. New electrical components are being installed in the massive 1959 Lincoln with the goal of getting it back on the road by March.  The group decided in July to opt out of the 2010 competition for vehicles that exceed the equivalent of 100 mpg after deciding that fulfilling competition requirements would interfere with progress the team hoped to make on the car.
