With a beer in hand, Neil Young went on camera last week to record a “State of the Linc Volt” address and give the world an update on his progress converting a ’59 Lincoln Continental into a badass electric vehicle. We haven’t heard much on the project since engineer John Goodwin and Young nearly destroyed the car in their first test run back in June.

Now, we’re learning that the number of Lithium-ion batteries has been reduced and they’ve added an on-board generator — similar to the Chevy Volt’s small gasoline range extender. Also, and most interesting, the Lincoln has been outfitted with sensors that will wirelessly hook up with the Internet and deliver real time stats to the world. We’re not sure if they’re jacking in through a cell phone or just some local hotspots, but either way, cool!

Also, take a look at the live web cam now available in the garage for visual updates at your leisure. Is that a Hummer to the right? Is that monster getting a new green soul too?
