I've seen a few articles about very high PSI compressed air powered cars.

Wow! You have got to watch this one. The first part is about the French company mentioned before, but part 2 is another guy that has made a Rotary engine. It's amazing. I so hope this technology takes off!

I still want my muscle car, but I would love to have a DD that ran on air!

Until you ran out and are left huffing and puffing into the tank on the side of the road.

Are you saying I'm full of hot air?

There's always the option of an onboard engine to compress air if you need it. And, there's probably some kinda...well... gauge, kinda like a fuel gauge, would be my guess.
