Very fast. Very old. Very new. That's the short version of the vehicles in the image above. On the left, there's the JCB Dieselmax, which broke the diesel land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats last week. In the middle, there's a 1918 Detroit electric vehicle for sale on eBay.

The group was announced and the HOA website went live yesterday. The site will try to get the estimated 500,000 American hybrid owners to work
