I used to commute to work in a 1972 Z600 Honda Sport Coupe that I paid $1575.00 for brand new. It would go 72 mph and get 54 miles/gallon. Stuff your imitation Hybrids.

And I find it weird that Fred Edeskuty (The Leading Scientist in the group developing Hydrogen fueled cars at Los Alamos National Laboratory) who lives over in the next valley from me and rebuilds old cars, doesn't have a hydrogen powered car at his house.

Direct Hydrogen Fueled Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell System for Transportation Applications

We did lose a World Famous Ballooning pioneer this last September because (it is speculated that) Lightning hit his Hydrogen Balloon and it descended into the Adriatic at over 50 miles an hour... (The descent is real, and recorded and tracked, the lightning is probable.)
