    #NewsdayTuesday 1979: Electric Limousine?



    Manufactured by the Electric Auto Corporation, Troy, Michigan, this super-luxury limousine incorporated all of the features of its original Cadillac base.
    With a top speed of 70-mph and a cruising range of 120 miles at 30 mph, it had an on-board auxiliary engine for recharging batteries...

    An on-board engine for recharging batteries? Interesting. A nascent Volt 37 years ago.
    Drives a 2019 Cadillac ATS Coupe and a 1988 Pontiac Trans Am GTA.

    In the past, I've had a 5th gen Camaro, a CTS sedan and coupe, two 3rd gen Firebird Formulas, a convertible 4th gen Trans Am, a Reatta, a couple of Monte Carlos, an Avenger coupe, a couple of Cavalier hatchbacks, a Saturn SC1, and a Cherokee.
