With gas prices where they are, Bio Diesel seems to make more sense each day. Maybe I could finally get that pick em truck that I have been dreaming about.
Here is a cool link to Greasecar Vegetable Fuel Systems. When I first heard of Bio Diesel, I thought that it was a joke.
The most recent Patagonia catalog had a surfer/traveler dude in that is using a full size Dodge pick up powered by Bio Diesel.
Apparently it burns clean as well. I would love to drive and have the emissions smell like french fries or Chinese food. restaurants and their used cooking grease are prime sources for fuel with these systems.

This '41 Willys below captures the look and feel pretty well of a 60s Gasser.
Check out the recent Rodders Journal for more Gasser Fun- especially the feature on the John Mazimanian Willys Coupes.
Dad and I had a great time last year at the Vintage Drags at Great Lakes Dragaway- There was at least 6 old Willys burning out and taking names!

Check out the '41 Willys to the left... After reading the article in the latest Hot Rod magazine- about 8 times, I might add- I realized how much I dig these 60s straight line killers.
I prefer the '41 Willys when it is sporting a straight axle with the nose in the air- to shift the weight bias to the rear- enhancing traction in the process.
I built a little metal Willys model over the winter... it didn't really capture the Willys Gasser look.
