Sure, it must have been one of those new fangled, “low emission” doo-dads. Damn those climate change agitators and tree huggers!

Gee, our old LaSalle ran great…those were the days.

I’m curious regarding the make an model of that car. Does anyone know?

More specifically, is it an electric or hybrid car?

Looks like a Mazda 6 to me. Some were hybrids, I believe.
