Kestrel, a car made of hemp

Totally bizarre. A car made of hemp. Meet the Kestrel.

The article mentions Henry Ford's interest in hemp in cars, which reminds me of a Phoebe Atwood Taylor novel from WWII in which one of her characters says they'll know the world is back to normal when they can stop eating soya beans, and instead, Henry Ford can put the beans in his cars.

Bioplastics are fascinating.
