Default Diesel car to show at Harrisburg Farm Show

Hey, I've already announced this in the Eastern Thread, but I wanted to let others know as well (bc many are from all over). The diesel car designed by The Academy for Automotive & Mechanical Engineering in Philadelphia will be showing at the Harrisburg Farm Show Jan. 6th-13th in the alternative fuels area. If you haven't seen this vehicle before...it's a sight for sore eyes! It was designed by students and actually beat out many big manufacturer's in the Tour De Sol.
Here is a picture....

The Farm show is located on Rte 230/Cameron St. in Harrisburg.

p.s. bring the friends that don't believe diesels can be hot cars!

Great! It looks a little like a Lotus Elise; I've always wanted one.

What kind of mechanicals does it have?

We should see if we could get a diesel section in the parking lot. You know close to the door and a special exit so we do not have any traffic when leaving like buses do for group concert goers.
