    Where have you been? Were you hit by a Prius and recovering away from a computer?

    They serve as a mounting platform for peace symbols and Obama bumper stickers. Other than that, I'm not really sure. They're the modern day equivalent of the Scooby Doo van.

    loo, those cars are piles. I'd hate to be in one in an accident.

    They are the modern day Yugo, only uglier, which is really saying something...

    Top Gear is the best show on TV. It sounds like top gear U.S. is going to be on cable.

    If I told you where I've been, you wouldn't believe me. My life has been surreal the last three months.

    Even by my standards....

    I shouldn't even post in this thread... We have a prius and love it. That being said we drive primarily in the city where a small car is really a huge advantage, especially when you have to parallel park everywhere. We drive back to Iowa from NYC a couple times a year (we have two dogs so flying is not an option) and have managed to only have to fill up the tank once halfway through. When you're on a budget, and your end of year bonus has just been nixed it is nice to have never put more than $40 in gas in your vehicle...

    I've wonered about you also!! You always have interesting things to share with us. I was afraid you had been banned, of someone had made you angery and you had wandered off. Glad you are still around, wqelcome back and I hope you can share some of the info about the last 3 months. We could use a good LAUGH at your expense. Hopefully, nothing seriously bad happened.
    Glad you are here.

    I think the Honda Insight is uglier than both the Yugo and the Prius.

    Just thought of something... remember that thread about minivans and how I swore I'd never own one. Well now that I think about it I think I'd own a minivan before I'd ever buy a Prius! Neither will ever happen anyways but just saying if I was forced into buying one or the other I'd rather be found dead in a minivan than a Prius.

    prius haters are idiots. I mean, in this day and age of sending over billions of dollars to the middle east while our soldiers are getting killed by the weapons our gas money buys, some people are foolish enough to hate on cars that get over 40 mpg. Truly, some people just don't get it.
