EV from 1904 still silently cruising the streets

You know that Gram Parsons song "100 Years From Now"? The opening lyrics are "100 years from this day / Will the people still feel this way / And keep saying the things that they're / saying right now?" I thought of these words (and Gram's smooth voice) when I saw this video clip of a 1904 Baker electric two-seater electric vehicle that is driving around. The car's owner, Lew Miller, says that the car runs as well today as it did the day it was built, and it's never been in the shop.
You can watch the two-minute video clip of the EV here, but only for the next month. After that, you'll probably have to search YouTube or something. We won't be able to find out for a while, but I'd like to see how the Tesla Roadster holds up 100 years from now.
