Breaking Wind

The land speed record for a “sail” driven vehicle was broken recently by the Greenbird, a fiber composite vehicle that clocked at 125 MPH on the dry desert beds of Nevada.

The Greenbird, driven only by wind power is touted as part sail boat, part airplane, and part formula 1 car, and proves there is an effective method to harness wind power…

Assuming road lanes are 15 feet wide, there is a strong breeze, and you never drive with more than yourself and a coke can…

Side Note: Where the hell do you park this… One good breeze and it will end up 20 miles from your house.
