Billings’ work in hydrogen received national attention with the Cadillac Seville that was featured in Jimmy Carter’s Presidential Inaugural Parade.
The vehicle was equipped to run on either hydrogen or gasoline — for greater range in the absence of hydrogen refueling stations.
Hydrogen was stored in a state-of-the art hydride vessel.
Billings drove a hydrogen fueled Cadillac Seville in Carter’s presidential inauguration. He has a hydrogen powered bus operating in Provo, and one also in Riverside, Calif. . . . Billings is a millionaire, corporation president, and, as a leading exponent of hydrogen energy, he may well be one of the most potentially important men in the energy-worried world.”
