>So you already converted your ’53 Caddy Eldorado to run on biofuel, filled those baller whitewalls with nitrogen, and you keep it all moving as smooth as your ride with a neat synthetic oil blend. But what about all of those acres of chrome? Every true greenie should know that chrome, that bastion of pride in the American automobile, is about as environmentally unfriendly as Mr. Burns. So what’s any self-respecting classic car fan to do?
MIT scientists have heard your plight, and have answered the call. They’ve come up with a new alloy made from a nickel-tungsten blend that’s just as great, but won’t kill the workers making it. Another alternative, made by a company called Metallight, is already coming to market. Expect to see it soon at an earthgarage.com near you.
