The Best Alternative Energy Car

In 1932, J.M. Custer of Piggott, Arkansas had an idea for a car that
would run on compressed air. He not only built the car, but it
actually ran. He used an engine that resembled a radial airplane motor
in appearance. It was mounted upright in the same space occupied by
gasoline motors in standard cars. Four tanks filled with compressed
air powered the car 500 miles at a speed of 35 miles an hour. The
engine did not require a cooling system, ignition system, carburetor,
nor the hundreds of moving parts included in a standard gasoline

The technology didnt attract much interest for 75 years. But its
resurfacing, using todays high technology.

A research and development company called Magnetic Air Cars, Inc. is
developing an air-powered prototype car in Silicon Valley. They
believe that their design will be sufficient to power a modern new
vehicle, or retrofit a used vehicle -- even a large SUV or truck.

It wasnt all that long ago that the idea of making a car that could
run on something as innocuous as air or water seemed completely
preposterous. But fortunately, things do change, albeit slowly.

While the Magnetic Air Car is the first to combine a magnetic motor
with an air compressor, there are other cars close to commercial
production utilizing the compressed air technology.

The Air Car, by Luxembourg-based Moteur Developement Int. (MDI) also
runs on compressed air, and, according to a January article in the MIT
publication Technology Review, the Air Car is already set to go into
commercial production. MDI has struck a deal with Indias largest
carmaker, Tata Motors, to put the non-polluting vehicles on the
streets of India sometime this year.

The MDI Air Car may also offer up some healthy competition against the
Magnetic Air Car here in the U.S.

According to an article in Popular Mechanics, Zero Pollution Motors --
the U.S. licensee for MDI -- expects to produce the worlds first air-
powered car for the United States by late 2009 or early 2010.

Folks, this is a much better option than a hybrid or electric car,
which literally envelopes you in strong electromagnetic fields. Best
of all, it has NO EMISSIONS whatsoever.

We are simply running out of excuses for not converting to safer (and
cheaper!), renewable energy sources that dont turn the Earth into a
toxic waste dump with every mile we drive.

Well they have been saying it for about 10-12 years so I dare say a few

Or the ones from back in the 90s that said factorises were already
being built.

But then you can find people who will believe in the damndest nonsense
and pautrey seems to be 'true believeer' and gullible as hell.

The clue for the silicon valley thingy is "magnetic motor" - kook land
for sure.
