Many electric cars of old looked tighter (from dusty or muddy roads) and more comfortable than many of the combustion cars of the era that looked more like, well...yes, horseless carriages. The electric cars particularly appealed to well-dressed ladies. The 1913 Detroit Electric car here certainly is a good example. Rarely, have I seen electric cars of old at museums or car shows.
This is best one I have seen. It's very appealing. Who wouldn't enjoy a test drive around a couple of blocks?
