Well, your Beetle beats me, but I wear a Timex watch, and carry Pelikan pens. :P

I still farm with my Dad's '53 Farmall Cub..... 12V is the only mod (except cultivating tools). Claimed 9 hp when brand new, no water pump cools by thermosiphon.

I have my Dad's John Deere about the same vintage, still 6V and thermosiphon cooling system. I also still drive my 1988 Jeep purchased new and would still have my 2011 LEAF if it had not met untimely demise (would likely be on third or fourth battery if still on the road in my climate). I intend to keep the 2019 for quite a while because it will meet my daily driving needs even if the battery capacity drops a lot because I only charge every 3 or 4 days now.

The 2019 serves us really well also, but Vermont winters with salt on the highways is murder on cars- MAYBE the Leaf will be better than oters because there is no exhaust to heat things up and MAYBE the bottom of the car is a bit less vulnerable because of the battery box? We have a little place in Tucson and will come to admire how well cars age (among other things...)

Loved my 2019 Leaf Plus EV. It performed as advertised and was a fun and practical Ev. However, once Nissan decided to sell the Ariya in the U.S. with a CCS charge port, we began thinking about switching to a a larger EV that uses the CCS standard. Since it was unclear whether we would be able to get an Ariya in our hands during tax year 2021, we took a close look at both the VW ID.4 and the Ford Mustang Mach-E. We wound up choosing the ID.4 and took delivery last week.

Enjoy. It looks to be a great EV.

Though Though are not buying another car soon, I am leaning towards Ionic 5/Kia EV 6.

But who knows what's going to be available in 2 years.

My next 'EV' is probably going to be a Rav4 Prime (PHEV). I'm hoping to run it mostly as an EV around town and for my daily commute and then use the ICE when doing long trips or to places where 4WD and high clearance are needed. I have a deposit in and it's supposed to arrive at the dealership in May but I'll believe it when I see it.

Maybe J.C. Whitney will offer a "Leaf to Ariya" body kit, much like the "Continental" kit for the VW Beetle. ;)
