i'll take the one on the left any time; the prius is a cool car though--I would say it's my favorite out of Toyota's current offerings. I think the Lexus version will be the next hot car.

BTW do you run the fiberglass top year-round? It's prime convertible season now.

Total opposites....


one can be recycled, rebuilt easily, and continue to perform for dozens of years, can carry passengers, can tow heavy loads, drive on tarmac, drive on mud, not stopped by foul weather,floods etc


the other needs several factories around the world to fabricate it's batteries, giving nasty pollution where they do, and has a finite shelf life and can only sit on black-top....


i know which i'd choose!

Jimmy - Yeah - Run Fiberglass hardtop all year. Have a problem with too much wind in my eye from a surgery back in 1995. Ran the first summer and fall with no top. Loved it. Then had my surgery. Then modified the truck to keep it. Hardtop has been on ever since...........And is it pretty good shape because it has not been on and off.

There are many great things about having the hard top on - but I still miss that season where I drove around with no top
