Newton turns a new ‘Leaf’
Nissan Leaf owners Jayne and Shuford Abernethy, of Conover, love the newest addition to their garage. Their white car is all electric and virtually silent driving down the streets of Catawba County. A little tune plays after the orange start button is pushed, instead of the usual cranking of a gasoline car.
"It's like a toy, it's so much fun," Jayne said. "Especially when I drive by a gas station and know that I'll never have to stop there in this car."
