The Latest Rage?
Am I the only one that's noticed more and more Toyota Priuses driving around town. I keep seeing new ones every day, or so it seems. I can understand their popularity but I would think that, because of their popularity, the prices would go up and make them less affordable to people.
I have no idea how much they cost. Doesn't really matter. I couldn't afford to buy one, regardless.
But I actually kind of enjoy seeing this trend toward high mileage cars develop. As I posted before here some time ago, owners of non- fuel efficient cars are having a hard time getting rid of their gas guzzlers as this story from the San Jose Mercury News reports.
They're saying my wife's car, the Geo Metro, is also gaining in popularity. I suppose that's good news but that car is too uncomfortable for me to do anything in but short trips around town. Hey, maybe we could take the engine out of the Metro and stick it in my F-150 pick up truck? Hmmm...???
