There's a New England hybrid gathering being planned here:
http://priuschat.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=108943

There is a poll vote for the date, either Saturday July 30, 2005, or
Saturday August 6, 2005. (Currently the Aug. 6 date is winning.)

Location is still to be decided (probably by Monday), but it looks to be
in the Framingham/Natick MA area. Suggestions are welcome!

Just for fun, on a sheet of paper, write down the year and option package of your car and any modifications you have made to the car (i.e. floor mats, leather seats, subwoofer, hydraulics to make the car bounce, etc.) Add your name and post this on your car so that others can query you as they consider similar modifications.
