First, it was my dad (circa 1983)
Then, it was my brother (last year)
Now, it's ME!!
I am the proud owner of a NEW 2008 Toyota Prius!! My first brand new new car!! The color is spectra blue mica - and I l.o.v.e. love it! (which is a good thing since I picked it from a tiny square in the catalog) The hybrid engine is pretty awesome - I haven't driven it too much - Pete drove home after dinner because I don't like driving after dark (I know, I know, old lady - but I have poor night vision!) The coolest part is the display screen in the middle that tells how many miles per gallon you're getting -- average is 48, but if you drive carefully, you can get 99.9 when coasting, etc. I'm also pretty excited about the automatic doors and windows, which tells you how far behind the times I have been car wise. I'll share more once I've got more experience with it -- I'm off to read the manual!
