Default Air Powered Car...

I don't know if this is a repost (searched but didn't find anything). But thought this was pretty cool:

Here'* some about converting gas engines into air powered motors:

I doubt we'll see anything like this used in commercial vehicles here in the US. Who knows though...

I wonder what happens when you puncture that tank thats holding the air compressed to 4350 psi.

Does it POP like a balloon or does it 'jet' around uncontrolled.
