Grow Your Own Car

Jul 18, 2015

RAY: A leading automobile executive once proposed a car made out of soybean plastic. This vehicle would be powered by ethanol, and would run on tires -- ready for this?

TOM: Made out of road kill?

RAY: Made from goldenrod. The car would in fact be biodegradable. We would, said the executive, be growing our own cars. Notice the drama in the air? The question is, name this innovative automobile executive.

RAY: His name was Henry Ford. Who's our winner?

TOM: Congratulations to Erica Fire from North Tonawanda, New York!
