Default Parked next to a H2

I attended my Grand Daughters Dance Recital and parked on east site of a H2. It was great shading my 04 Tideland Pearl Prius from the hot afternoon Sun. Never got to thank the owner. Or tell him it will help me keep up the 40 plus MPG I achieve daily and 58 MPG on a trip.

I found one parked next to me when I came out of a restaurant at breakfast. I wonder if he looked at my car with as much disdain as I looked at his?

One day, there will be enough Prii on the road, we'll be able to box in and corral those big animals, maybe even tame 'em.

Oh you never know... the shape of the Prius is still different enough to attract attention. Of course seeing the car, and thinking about it's significans are two entirely different things.

If it seems like you can't spit without hitting a Prius, roll your window down.

Ever have the Human powered vehicles look at your Prius with disdain?

Don't park next to one. They won't see you and will ding you when lowering their gangplanks.

Instead, speed away from them at stoplights and pass them going uphill on the freeway. *Then* they notice you :_>
