I've read that Arnie the Governator has been pushing hard to get California vehicles converted to hydrogen and was wondering whether this might assist experimetation with cryogenic rocket engines.

You could probably use the car fuel tanks to hold LOX as well as H2 fairly cheaply and the cost of filling them wont be so high. Also what about valves and control systems used in cars, these might be adapted as well?

Well the industrial output is going to go way way up, and there should be a lot more infrastructure floating around.

So while it may be easier an possibly cheaper to obtain and get onsite, handling it is still going to be a severe organisational issue.
