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.
