Here's a story on Henry Ford's soybean car from 1941, of a piece with his abiding passion in farming and the adaptation of soybeans to industry. The car's body panels were constructed from a soybean-derived plastic, or so it was claimed. Members of this forum will be shocked, shocked, to learn that a green car initiative might possibly be less than advertised. Anyway, interesting story about an interesting car from a number of angles.
