I'm sure someone has seen one but I found this amazing. I got to drive my buddys girlfriend'* SSE and when I got in my buddy said "whatever you do don't touch that swith in the steering column." Obviously curious I asked why and he said that his girlfriend bought it from someone who worken at a natural gas company so the switch changed the car to run on natural gas. Maybe I need sleep but I find this amazing, never seen a natural gas Bonneville.

I know a guy who ran out of gas on a lonely road. He took the propane tank out of the camper, handed it to his wife in the passenger seat, ran a tube from the cab to the carb, and had her control the throttle by cracking the valve. Got him 10 miles to the next gas station.

how hard would that be to do something like that. That is awesome. I've never heard of it.
