Had a little time on my hands this morning and I wrote up a blog covering the different propulsion systems cars have seen (many of them I was educated about by Classic and Sports Car which is part of the reason I love this magazine).  Give it a read and let me know what you think and if I missed anything! -

You guys had a lot of thoughts on my previous blog The Future Middle Class Classics and I enjoyed the conversation.  Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best,

Isaiah

I forgot Solar!  I'll have to add that.

My little brother (a marine) also pointed out that all their tanks have turbine motors.

I'm in the energy industry and I think I could write a pretty interesting article on the environmental issues associated with different cars.  I might do that one of these days; thanks for the idea!
