MDI Air car

Hey guys check this out...

A car that runs on compressed air:

MDI Enterprises S.A. - Air compressed cars - Flowair - Clean cars - Sustainable technology.

Wouldn't it be great if you could have one shipped overseas?!

Yes, if I had one I'd ship it overseas. Or even have them dump it overboard.

CAT (Compressed Air Technologies) worked on this for a bit. They even had a few driveable units.

Problem is getting several 3000-4500PSI air tanks to pass crash testing.

We SCUBA dive and will tell you, the guy with the bed or trailer full of the groups tanks would not want to be plowed by a truck.
Don't think they will ever get on past the NHTSA here.

Nah frank, I know if they gave you one free you would do one of 2 things
1. Sell it
2. Keep it and put in a more suitable motor.

Because a lightweight body like that shouldn't go to waste
