Back to the future

Confirmed Lefty, Sydney Morning Herald columnist Elizabeth Farrelly dearly wants to own a replica of the non-polluting Detroit Electric Brougham. Other than her Gaia-saving delusions it is unclear why anyone would want to own a car with a traffic-obstructing top speed of 32 km/h and a 130 kilometre range.

Perhaps Farrelly wants to avoid the arduous process of starting a fossil fuel-powered vehicle:
The Detroit Electric was mainly sold to women drivers and physicians who desired the dependable and immediate start without the physically demanding hand cranking of the engine that was required with early internal combustion engine autos.
Times have changed, Lizzy.
