0029 - Alternative Power in classic cars

Alternative Propulsion - moving classic cars in different ways. This week on the Curbside Classic Car Show podcast we discuss alternatives to the traditional gasoline engine and how early experiments in alternative propulsion competed but never won out. From steam power to electric cars, early hybrids to hydrogen and even a look at nuclear-powered cars this episode is a journey into the different ways we humans motivated our wheels. Oh, and did you know you could power a car with wood? Over a million people did!

Plus the ridiculous Dr. Headgasket has some cocamame advice about alternative fuels.
