    So if you were driving behind it, did you have an overwhelming desire for chocolate chip cookies?

    Very interesting stuff
    I have watched so much on the history of Ford on cable, I am surprised non of this has been focused on before.
    Thanks for expanding my already demented mind

    The interesting thing about this posting is the fact that the original intent was not to use oil.

    Why has the technology revisited this?

    I felt this info deserved its own thread............Hemp plastic being 10 times stronger than steel......to me thats amazing........Now if we could just get rid of these gas minded presidents......The U.S. President has no need to beg Saudia Arabia for more oil, how pathetic.........


    Corn(ethanol) is a big waste of time, what are they going to start begging brazil for corn?


    I wouldn't be suprised if you could grow more hemp than corn in limited space, probably uses less water.....

    Now I know their afraid people's kids are going to get a hold of this stuff.....Knowing this type of hemp has 1% of the thc, or whatever chemical gets people high......Your kid would have to eat about a acre of this plant for it to become mind altering.........at that point the Police would have nabbed 2,000 drunk drivers.........

    Now I know Bush is just protecting is nest egg/retirement/family treasure......

    But I felt this was very interesting thats why it became its own thread.....

    Bush= Halbutrin/Oil= Medical narcotics/oil

    Thanks Bush for trying to help, now if he got out the way, we could go 20 times faster....


    How long ago did this info come out, When was Ford around...

    Diesels should be running on vegetable oil & gassers on ethanol but I'm pretty sure Bush had nothing to do with hemp being illegal.
    And to think that any ONE politician is responsible for that you must be smoking some yourself.:biggrin_25513:

    There are a lot of different companies working on conversions to run diesels on veg oil, just check out Frybrid.com for one. All it needs to go foward is public demand.

    No it wasn't me, I haven't left the state in two weeks. The farthest I have been is Doylestown Pa. Today I am leaving the state. I'm going to Trenton NJ. with a forklift to pick up a Lincoln SA 200 (Pipeliner) welder. I've always loved the way those machines welded, always seemed so smooth.

    I've got some 80' long stuff going to Georgetown SC to International Paper, but I'm not going to take it myself. I've got to find someone to take it down. I'm going to call Ace Doran or Landstar Inway and see what they can do.
