Susan Tompor Detroit Free Press Published 7:00 AM EDT Jun 15, 2019 Alex Pardoe, 25, is what some might dub the anti-millennial. Except, he's not really.

Yeager Jan. 10, 2019 They’re classic cars fit for a concours d’elegance, a royal wedding or simply a quiet drive down a country lane. They exude vintage elegance, but lifting the hood reveals they’re fueled by electricity, not gasoline. When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quietly sped off in a 1968 E-type Jaguar after their 2018 wedding, they made automotive history.
