Automakers, at least the ones that still have employees, are scrambling to design alternative-fuel vehicles. On the drafting board, or already out on the road, are cars powered by electricity, ethanol, natural gas, hydrogen, and even french-fry grease. But while I was poking around online the other day I discovered that even as early as the 1950’s the Ford Motor Company was already way out in front in the hunt for an alternative to fossil fuels. Have a look at the Nucleon.
