One of the things I wanted to do, when I started this site lo those many years ago, was change the conversation. In some senses, the conversation has changed a little but not very much. The Prius is still for "treehuggers" (as though that's a bad thing, but I digress). The Prius is still an appliance not a "real car" to many. Like I said, a lot of this has changed, a little but these memes still come through and it's usually from folks who think they are car experts.
I've never heard of autorevolution before this morning. I tend doubt I'll be back there anytime soon but this story was interesting to me.
Back to the conversation. If the Prius is the nerdy kid in the class who gets picked on for drawing during class, I think this is the time for that kid to come out and get their due. The idea that it's cool for some big truck guy to left their truck three feet in the air while the differential is still ten inches from ground is stupid. And please, don't even get me started on all the home modifications to little cars with loud exhaust that run around. Modifying the Prius is no less or more stupid than modifying any other vehicle. And, if you'll allow me, you're an asshole if you think otherwise (yes autorevolution, I'm talking to you).
By the way, the last word is the best. It comes in the form of a comment from the actual owner who found the article and said...
