Yes, it's true, as tugrik noted in his own journal, I've finally joined the pseudo-eco elite. I got my Toyota Prius yesterday. (Insert egotistical Nyah Nyah, my car gets more milage than thou taunt here.) It's definitely a neat gadgety car, and I think I'll still be learning things it can do for a few weeks yet. Now to see how to hack into the main console computer, to add stuff... :)

My new Prius

I'm from the big-banger school of motoring, but I do lust after this type of Prius.
I love the shape of it, how it's one continuous curve front-to-back.
My right knee bumps up against the widdle shifter, so the only way I can own one of these and drive it
is if new holes are drilled in the floor, and the driver's seat's rails are moved back.
(And if I get the money, of course)

Hybrid GOOOOOD!!!

(And yea for not adding another silver car to our over-silvered highways and byways)

I love the shape of it, how it's one continuous curve front-to-back.

My only concern about the shape was that it looks like it has almost no trunk space. I imagine I could find an equivalent but roomier car if I really looked (not in the market for a car for the intermediate future =^.^=).

My space-check method for a car is to see if it'll fit 5 people (including driver) without too much compression, and their school/gym bags in the trunk. And if it'll fit at least four 2x4s wedged in from trunk to dashboard. All of these situations have occurred often enough to be needed with the present vehicle };>.

The station wagon I had access to years ago was great for hauling people and supplies, but near-impossible to park, so smaller is better up to the cargo limit.

Anyways, I've rambled enough tonight =^.^=. Batbat vehicle does indeed look cool, and from what I know of Revar and Tugrik, they'll have tricked it out with enough kit to rival my desk at work in short order.

Nice shiny Prius indeed. Ooooh. Debating one of those for Meefer's replacement in mid-2006.

I test-drove a hybrid Civic and liked the gadgetry, but the acceleration was weak. More importantly, the salesman couldn't tell me how long the battery would last or whether it'd even be possible to replace. Not to mention the high entry cost. Does anyone even know about the lifespan of these things?
