LincVolt Takes Dog House To White House

Neil Young's trip to Washington, DC with LincVolt appears to be imminent.

And it looks like in LincVolt's trunk will be a special gift for President Obama -- a sustainable, eco-friendly doghouse.

From Ecorazzi:
"Of course, this isn’t your average run-of-the-mill retreat. This dog house is rooted in eco-design and features a green roof, recycled wood from naturally felled trees (from the driveway of our 7th President, Andrew Jackson, no less.) zero-VOC paint and varnish, and a personal delivery in Neil Young’s all-electric 1959 Lincoln. In fact, the dog house is already in Young’s garage awaiting delivery. Now all we need is a First Dog to lead the free canine world. Here’s a bit more from the Sustainable Pet Design site on the project:

Sustainable Pet Design’s vision does not end with the arrival of the Summa Canum at The White House. Our intent is to create an ongoing testing ground for sustainable practices to which all Americans can contribute. Summa Canum can be retrofitted with solar panels, radiant floor heating, a graywater recycling system–just about anything you can imagine. When Summa Canum is tricked out to the max (or when the First Dog puts her paw down for some peace and quiet), we’ll build another, together."

Check out more details on this first dog house here.

The LincVolt team has been broadcasting from Wichita all week in preparation for departure to Washington.

Mother Nature on the Run reports that LV went out for a test drive late Tuesday afternoon after the faulty Ujoint was repaired and muffler was installed.

Follow the LV action here.

Yes that's right.After Neil's arrest last Friday on suspected dog smuggling and the impounding of several dogs,Neil's eco friendly doghouse is no longer required at the ranch..It's all falling into place now isn't it!

If Neil and his crew can make Link-Volt work, and Mr. dog house builder can make and sell his dog house, great, that is the American way. When these items are presented to Obama, he will show the love. However, if anyone believes our President will have any respect for these project or people, then you have no idea what it takes to rise up through the Chicago political scene. Go ahead sheep, keep giving more love and power to President Obama, he will take it all, and he will take all he can. The only green he cares about is others being green with envy toward him and his power.

Mr Know-it-all-anonymous:

Obama didn't "rise" through Chicago city politics. He was in the state legislature. Give it a rest.

Any gift to the President becomes a gift to the nation.
