- As you go through life, you've got to see the valleys as well as the peaks.
- I feel like I could be likened to an old hound circling on a rug for the last five years.
- As I get older, I get smaller. I see other parts of the world I didn't see before. Other points of view. I see outside myself more.
- Some people put down all presidents. If you say anything good about any of them, they think you're supporting everything they do.
- Studios are passe for me. I'd rather play in a garage, in a truck, or a rehearsal hall, a club, or a basement.

1959 Lincoln Continental Mark IV Convertible
Canadian singer and songwriter, Neil Young is an example of how one can possibly combine the best of the old and the new! With the goal of going all-green without giving up on classic vintage style, he has been working hard alongside alternative-energy nerd, Johnathan Goodwin's company to convert his car into a hybrid. Thus, an esteemed, 1959 Lincoln Continental convertible is to be transformed into a 19.5-foot, 5,000-pound electric car! The Lincvolt he owns is going to be entered into the competition, Progressive Automotive X-Prize, as Mr.Young attempts to garner the 100 mpg fuel economy! A great result considering that 5 months of hard effort and tinkering has gone into it.
