      Kids Build Soybean-Fueled Sports Car

      Power
      Sterling D. Allan writes "High school students from West Philadelphia High School,including drop-outs and expelled students, have designed a sports car that can go from zero to 60 in four seconds and get more than 50 miles to the gallon on soy bean oil. CBS News reports that this unlikely car was the star last week at the Philadelphia Auto Show. Once again, are we seeing the fabled instance of revolutionary technology coming not from the big corporations, but from some unlikely garage. Maybe these guys will open source their design."
