Prince Charles plans eco-friendly motor show in London

While fire-breathing performance cars and hot rods are car-show fixtures, there aren't many environmentally-friendly car shows out there, so Prince Charles is having one in his front yard. The Prince of Wales will open his gardens at Clarence House to the public from September 8 to the 19th (neighboring gardens at Lancaster House and Marlborough House will also open their respective gardens) for what's being dubbed "The Garden Party to Make a Difference." Proceeds from the event will support the Prince's Charities Foundation, whose aim is to help people "lead more sustainable lives and to show what a more energy efficient, cleaner and healthier future could look like."

The garden party will feature a number of eco-friendly vehicles, music, comedy acts and a race from Glasgow to London pitting the sustainable stallions against the Prince's royal train, which runs on waste vegetable oil. Entry to the gardens costs £15, but the display of green cars is free. Is a green car show worth a trip across the pond? We're thinking no, unless of course we can burn some rubber racing Charles' choo-choo - all in the name of environmental responsibility.
