Green Machine

That Car Looks Good Enough To Eat

The world's first environmentally-friendly racing car, made of vegetables and powered by chocolate, will be launched next month. The 145mph ecoF3 has a steering wheel made of carrots, a body made of potatoes and a seat made of soybeans. The bio-diesel engine is capable of running on chocolate and vegetable oil.

FOOTNOTE: Driving force.

Seems a terrible waste of good chocolate.

I guess Rogers and Hammerstein knew best! ;-)

But I agree with Green Jello! Who on earth would want to waste chocolate that way???

That is a hoot!

My son-in-law's car runs on used cooking oil. He has a blog called smells like fries . It is a converted VW. When they travel, they trade filtered oil as they drive across the country. There is a huge group of them!

..and when it bumps into another, we'll sit by the road and eat our way out of the mess.

Better keep the car away from Mr. McGregor's garden. The bunnies will love it.

Gives new meaning to fast food.

Also if you are aware of the finish to the NASCAR race yesterday(Sunday).food would have been a little more welcome than the car and fence parts that went flying into the stands.

Sounds as though it will drive itself quickly into the ground!
Could be an 'E' type carrot there somewhere I suppose, and hardly 'an old choc!' But I'm worried about the potatoes because without additional strengthening the car has 'had it's chips'!

No way! Are you serious?! Hmmmm...

(Grin)

Never be driven by a woman. No-one would use their chocolate so carelessly.

Queen-Size funny bone said...

oh sure I would drive the thing and gain 10 pounds.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Chocolate??? You mean the driver eats lots of chocolate before he drives, which makes him drive faster due to the caffeine.That is what you mean, right? ;-)

Okay. Now prove it! :D

Shadow said...

spacedlaw said...
