Spotted one of these at a mountain bike race this afternoon. I haven't seen a K Car on the road for years! Eco-car? Maybe? Relative to the cars of its era?

I'm sure the Chrysler's K platform could have been quite eco back in the days when the stereotypical yankee rides still relied on a body-on-frame RWD layout with boat-anchor drivetrains.

I suspect the "battle wagon" is using a wood gasifier.

Also, if you follow the links, you end up with a nasty attack virus.......

It looks more like some sort of fuel vaporizer than a wood gasifier.
