Elcar... electric cousin of Le Car from the same era? ;)

+1 for bringing back some fond memories of a high school friend who was VERY proud of his LeCar, and his ability to parallel-park it ANYWHERE. (His favorite spot was between two dumpsters behind the school.)

There was another video out there of a red ElCar (the Italian version) which sounds what we could call normal. No putt-putt-putt. Sounds like a golf cart. Something really funky with that first one. Sounds like they converted it to gas.

Yes, I think it’s a conversion too.
