Runs On Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey

With gas prices soaring, 62 year old Mickey Nilsson, of Bardstown Kentucky, has invented a car that runs on Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey. Inspired by the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, he says, “The car will run on almost any bourbon, but she really purrs on Maker’s Mark. I was always a fan of Caractacus Potts (the Dick Van Dyke character) from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. He was pretty good at re-purposing junk. Always admired that." Nissan has signed a deal to develop a car with Nilsson called the Nilsson Nissan. It will hit showrooms in 2014.
