Cycloid Torus (645618) writes "BBC had a series of articles on the venerable Citroen CV2. A car of mythic virtues (maintenance required a scewdriver and two box wrenches), it has been out of production for some years. Since slashdotters are smart practical folks, I am wondering how they might redesign and manufacture such a valiant little car in a greenish manner. Compressed air engine? Small plug-in electirc air compressor (or should I say "compresseur"?) in lieu of other fuelish ways?
For those too young to remember the CV2, please see the links: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/7564980.stm, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/7563932.stm, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/north_east/7179084.stm"
