In about 1977 I think it was, I had a friend take me to a mans house in the Modesto, California area. He wanted me to see a car that ran on air and the inventor and original patent holder.
The motorcycle had very limited range, but the car with the trunk converted into a compressed air tank could go about 30 miles give or take. He was in the process of mounting a small Briggs and Stratton Compressor in the trunk with a small one gallon tank that he figured would take his range to more like 90 miles by running it intermittently while driving.
Not much new under the sun it seems.
I can't help but wonder if this person ran into an old article about that man and based this on his already proven design?
