And Now, Here's Rick Santelli Working On His Next American Revolution

CNBC’s Rick Santelli, who is adored by many Tea Party followers, is starting a new revolution today — an energy one, that is.

The colourful and outspoken correspondent, who reports from the Chicago Board of Trade floor, is in Edmond, Oklahoma today working on converting a Ford F-150 truck so it can run on natural gas.  

Santelli, who says he enjoys being a mechanic as a hobby, wants to show how easy it is to convert cars so they can run on natural gas. He plans on driving his newly converted truck on CNBC this afternoon.
