Rides well in car: Yes. He has been crated when driving and laid down the entire ride.

Needs a home with a yard: Yes, it would be best of he had a secured yard to run in. Otherwise, he would require a lot of physical activity to burn his energy.
Needs a home with another dog: He has been with Mappy (a senior …would love to stay together if possible but understand this is unlikely) his whole life. When they were separated, he cried, they both did. So, another submissive dog would be a nice playmate.
