    I wonder how far you could go on a charge. It is always fun to look at the cost of the old cars. Cheers!

      The costs always make me go wow and then I have to adjust for the time period and then I realize they were for those well to do.

    Looks a lot classier than a Prius! That car cost $49,821 in 2016 dollars.

    Oh my! I was shock when reading Timothy’s comment – the price is increasing so high..I hope it is worth with the maintenance! Beautifully captured, Teri 🙂
