If you cover the nose, it's very Model S-ish. (Or very "luxury sedan" ish in general.)

MY PEOPLE!!!

I did a run down to Florida last week with a snowbird friend and spotted this gem!



I was flabbergasted - I don't remember the last time I've seen one of these on the road up north.

It was a 5-speed, but no idea if 3- or 4-cyl. I hung around outside the grocery store for a little while hoping to talk to the owner, but he never appeared.

What do you think the windshield sticker says/said? Not sure if it's car-related or political. (The back of the car was peppered with NRA / Trump stickers.)

Most likely the 3-cyl. IIRC the 4-cyl was more often fitted to the sedan.
