Neil Young's Warehouse Fire Traced to 'LincVolt' Hybrid 1959 Lincoln Continental
|The damage done...|
Young has been documenting the creation of the "LincVolt" vehicle on film -- and the car even has its own website.
Young believes the fire may be traced to "an operator error that occurred in an untested part of the charging system ... We are investigating the components involved with plug-in charging."
Around 70 percent of the contents of Young's San Carlos warehouse was saved by firefighters -- but he still suffered around $850,000 in property damage and a quarter of a million in structural damage.
Young had just delivered the above keynote speech at the Specialty Equipment Market Association car show in Las Vegas earlier this month.
