Hybrids

Wired News:

Electrical engineer Victor Wouk (the brother of author Herman Wouk) built a hybrid from a 1972 Buick Skylark as part of the EPA-sponsored Federal Clean Car Incentive Program. Wouk paid for the research and development himself through his company Petro-Electric Motors, with the promise that the government would order 350 of the vehicles if the car passed the federal emissions tests.

The car passed the initial EPA test, but an EPA administrator reneged on the contract and killed the program, and Wouk abandoned his car in disgust.

Ah, such foresight.
