Mark McConville’s CNG-powered 1966 Pontiac GTO was created as a way to educate Americans on the versatility of CNG and the freedom domestic natural gas can provide from foreign oil. McConville and his friend Keith Barfield drove the first CNG-powered muscle car from Santa Monica to Chicago on Route 66. The pair partnered with CNG stations, car aficionados and supporters of natural gas to make this dream a reality during summer 2010. The trip – which included a special refueling truck – facilitated classes, lectures and appearances to educate the public about natural gas as a viable automobile fuel.
