“It is not often that we get to combine our passion for music, good design, green technologies, and hot 1950’s classic vehicles, so we take any opportunity that we can get. Neil Young recently released his latest album “Fork in the Road”, which is dedicated to the Lincvolt project that transformed his classic Lincoln Continental into a hot zero emissions vehicle that gets 100mpg.” (Inhabitant)
