Daryl Hannah has promoted all kinds of cars powered by gasoline alternative recently, from her classic biodiesel El Camino to electric vehicles to, lately, an ethanol-powered Trans Am. We'd heard that she was going to convert the bruiser to electric drive, juiced from solar panels on her house, but that plan seems to have been scrapped in favor of the biofuel. Hannah will show off the '79 Pontiac Trans-Am in an episode of the TV show EcoReview that will air on Tuesday, March 23. Haven't heard of it? That's because it's a show produced by Community Television of Santa Cruz County. How cool is that?

The episode is called "The Greening of the Auto Industry: from Paint to Fuel," so we expect to see topics we've covered before (paint? check) and something we haven't, like a comparison of emissions of a car running on unleaded gasoline engine to one burning E10, E15 and E85. If you can't watch the show, you can stream it here when the time comes.
