Because Plastic Parts Are Made For Toys

And yes, I am paraphrasing from the great Sir Mixalot in the headline.

I'm not against body kits or customizing. Actually, quite the opposite. I wish there were more of it. I wish more of made it to the US. It's one of the few areas where the rest of the world gets really cool stuff and we get mudflaps and floor mats. Yay us. Thanks Japan.

Anyway, here is a story, it's really a press release from a company in Japan making a body kit for the new Prius and, well, sorry, I think it's ugly and, like too many of these things, more practical for a show car that does most of its traveling in a trailer than a real car, which gets used.

Still, fun to see.
