Neil Young's LincVolt: Out of the Sunset

Neil Young's LincVolt: Out of the Sunset
(Click photo to enlarge)

A lovely image of Neil Young's LincVolt heading out of the Sunset heading east.

From the road on LincVolt Continental | Facebook:
LV is running beautifully. We have an app onboard that tells us in real time exactly what our continuous CO2 savings are compared to a regular gasoline powered car or truck of equal size and weight. Currently we have saved a half-ton of CO2 from entering the atmosphere, traveling a little over 1100 miles.. Our goal is to save the weight of Lincvolt in tons of CO2 over the next few weeks. That weight of Lincvolt is just over 3 tons.

the driver.
Thanks LV for helping save the planet for another day!

Stay tuned for more road adventures @ LincVolt Continental | Facebook!

Real interestin .
Somewhat more interestin are the comments on the closed Lincvolt site , by a fella that calls himself " the driver "
A fella that has not lived here long enough to exercise the privilege to vote for our Prime Minister .... the Right Honourable Stephen Harper , a Prime Minister that has been elected by a free nation .( the silent middle class )
Come back to Canada and stay , and earn the right to vote and ridicule ......
Until then , the Northern Man don't need ya around any how EH !
Who's buyin all that dirty oil from Canada ?
Drive that there Lincvolt up here , and pickup the first hitchhiker ya see and ya'll be goin back to the country .

A last note , a tribute to Stompin Tom Connors on the same Lincvolt site , how ironic , as most Canadians know , Tom was a patriot , that gave back his Junos , in discust of those that left and sold out to Americana EH !

this is one reason why I love Neil Young. He cares about people and the planet. This is Susan Miller I won Neils book and Thrasher Wheat emailed me as they were very kind wanting to know if I were able to get a ticket because I am very ill and couldnt afford one. You folks are very beautiful people from Neil Young right don to Thrasher Wheat. This car would save on gas prices and help to stop the pollution. If more people cared this world would unite as it should. God Bless all you guys. I love you!

Speaking of selling out...Who is a bigger sell out than Harper? Real Canadians know Neil has done more for our country than Harper ever will. Harper is a puppet for the american government.

I never like to stoop to the level of ad hominem attacks, but sometimes it is necessary.
John EH Connelly, you are a non-stop shit-stirrer. You never EVER contribute anything valid or reasonable.
Howzabout you and Pinto (or Flounder) and Mother Nature On The Run start up your own anti-NY web-site so we here on THRASHER'S WHEAT may not be polluted by your "tar sands" toxicities ???

Stephen Harper didn't have to sell anything , he has continued to be voted for freely , and held accountable by Canadian voters .

Margo's got the cargo and Reggie's got the rig Eh !

If anyone in the free world is a puppet , I'd figure it to be an Obama feller tryin to hold off China from callin in their debt owed .
Who owns Canada , it sure aint Americana or China .... Lad

lol. First of all, Stompin Tom had no choice but to remain Canadian. Even we weren't buying his stuff. Stompin Tom has been irrelevant for more than twenty years. It took his death to remind people he wasn't already dead.

Harper was voted for freely? Pierre Poutine???

Harper didn't sell out to Obama, he sold out to bush.
"Who owns Canada , it sure aint Americana or China .... Lad " Really? You love Stompin Tom.

Have a good day, Son.

Continue to enjoy your cult and the freedom to accept those views expressed by Millionaire Rock Stars , that have the answers fer all that is wrong in an oil dependent world that we ALL are responsible for .
Continue to be held accountable and I wish you the freedom to express such varied views .

Lest We Forget those that died , so that we may do so .

@EH - No cults here, sorry to disappoint.

Only some folks trying to save the planet for another day. That's all.

Don't let it bring you down, EH. Try it. You just might like it.

Unfortunately ethanol is bad for small engines. I need to use an additive in my motorcycle to combat the bad effects of the ethanol on the engine, and now they are trying to push 15% ethanol on us which will really damage small engines for motorcycles, lawnmowers, boats.

Hey Thrasher .... A sincere Thanks
For continuing to allow posts .... discussions with views other than those that you may share .

Like many others , I continue to enjoy and appreciate the music of Neil Young .

Not a cult Eh ?
When you openly solicit funds , as you regularly do .... do you offer tax receipts for such donations ?
The thorn in my saddle is how you continue to ride Neil Young's coat tails in the muse of your political agenda .
Not cool

I know all my small motors do not do well on it. And what's with the shelf life of gas? I can't keep gas for a month without it separating. It was never that bad.
