Neil Young's LincVolt Causes Massive Warehouse Fire

Remember Neil Young’s much hyped conversion of a 1959 Lincoln Continental to a hybrid-electric vehicle? Dubbed the LincVolt, the singer meticulously documented the process of turning the classic gas guzzler into an efficient ride; a true labor love for the 65-year-old.

Sometime on November 9th, the charging system on the LincVolt caught on fire after someone left the car plugged in unattended. According to Young’s website, the charging system had never been fully tested. The resulting blaze sparked a three-alarm fire that damaged memorabilia, sound equipment, and other items valued at over $1.1 million.

Undaunted, Young has already started the rebuilding process, saying that him and his team will begin blasting the burnt car down to bare metal immediately. Parts from two other Lincoln Continentals will be harvested, though encouragingly, the engine compartment appears to have been spared any damage. “LV is ready for the next chapter, and the next ride,” he writes. “The mission unchanged.”
