Neil Young has understandably made a very big deal out of his one-of-a-kind LincVolt, a 1959 Lincoln Continental convertible that's been retrofitted into an electric car. The Canadian icon has been driving the one-million-dollar prototype around North America, intermittently documenting his trips, all in a concerted effort to promote green energy. He probably wasn't documenting the experience two Fridays ago, when the LincVolt broke down in the Sierra Nevadas, and he was momentarily stranded.

According to the Tahoe Daily Tribune, California Highway Patrol discovered Young with his broken down vehicle, along Interstate 80 near Donner Summit, and helped the singer-songwriter get off the highway.

Amusingly, Young was on his way to a green festival in Canada. Whoopsie!
