Hi ho, Silver!

The impossible has happened: the Prius has arrived. Hell has frozen over, pigs are flying, dogs and cats, living together.... and we have our car. So whoever had "50 weeks" in your office pool is the winner.When Pigs Fly

And yes, even though I wasn't sure what color we'd get exactly, we got Silver.

Fabulous! Just in time for our visit.... you'll let me drive, right?

Wow, it looks a little like the "people mover" at Disneyland.

Nice Ride! Good Luck with it. What will you rant about know? So lets figure this out you got the car on 1/13/05. I assume the gas tank was full, so next fill should be some time in the fall?

Good question. I probably have one or two Prius posts left in me, but after that, I'm on my own. I guess that'll be the true test of how interesting the rest of my life is. :)

Kevin,
Toyota just issued the following press release, Sorry.

January 14, 2005: Toyota is recalling 21,000 of its very popular, but scarce Prius because of a problem with the ignition/Power button. Passengers could hurt their fingers and risk being electrocuted if they try to start the car with wet hands, the automaker said.
Vehicles affected by the recall are from the most recent 2004 release, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. Toyota is recommending that owners use gloves when starting the car or use a tool such as a pen, NHTSA said. The driver can continue to use the vehicle, but they do not recommend its when it is raining or if the driver just got out of the pool. NHTSA said it has received 21 complaints from consumers, including 19 cases of hand and finger injuries. These include 13 cases where someone’s arm was completely blown off, and 2 deaths.

HA A HAHA HAA HA (evil laugh)
