snipshot_e418knv24don.jpgSinger Ben Harper opened up to Forbes Autos in a recent interview on his taste in cars and how his environmental passions are affecting his transport choices. The blues/folk guitarist (famous in the States for the song “Steal My Kisses”) owns two hybrids — a Toyota Highlander and a Lexus RX 400h — and also has plans to convert his prized ’64 Buick to run on either electric or corn oil. From the interview,

“I am a GM man. I am a Chevy guy. I have a ’64 Buick Riviera that I am having converted into an electric car (or corn oil). I am not driving it until it is converted. Well, I take it around the block to keep it broken in. But, it’s a mission right now that is out of control.”

Harper also makes clear that while Mercedes is the brand he would most like to slip into next, he’s placing the environment before his desires. He said, “But that isn’t the car for me now. I am into being environmentally aware and focused. I want to be responsible.”

We’re behind you all the way, Ben. Good luck with the Buick.
