The New York Times has a great story on the Magnolia Roadster that runs on natural gas. We originally did a story on them over the summer before they started their cross-country trip.
This beautiful car was built from the ground up by J.T. Nesbitt in his shop, Bienville Studios, in New Orleans. You can see the care that was taken in the design and construction of the vehicle in its many custom features.
The Magnolia has a 4.2-liter inline-6 cylinder engine and has a range between 600 and 700 miles because of the design and placement of fuel tanks.
The trip from Manhattan to Los Angeles took 89 hours. Not bad time.
You can read the full story over at the Times or check out Nesbitt’s website.
