Welcome, skai. You're trying to put an HTML file in an image tag... that ain't gonna roll.

(Never mind the fact that you have to have at least 50 posts before the image tag will work in the first place.)

Here you go:



Is this your Prius, skai?

Hmmm. Looks more like a shuttlepod to me.

Does it have warp drive? If so, they did a nice job of fairing in the nacelles. Those must be the bussard collectors on the bow.

Hey, if you're looking for a cute, eco-conscious, trekkie girl, I'd say this was a pretty good way to find one.

All' us geeky birds gotta show our plumage somehow.

Right on! I only wish I could afford a Prius.

Re: Prius-Class Shuttlecraft

You'd be better off with a Civic hybrid... the battery for the Prius costs a thousand dollars to replace, so in the long run, the extra money you save on gas goes towards the cost of a new battery.

HOoo boy. One of the reasons the Zhang Heng has become what it is, is to dispel myths about it. The batteries at this point are lasting the life of the car. Jesse Rudovsky has 333,000+ miles on his. The taxi fleet in Vancouver has several with over 200,000 miles on them.

The only batteries that get replaced are those involved in wrecks, and the few rare one with bad modules that have been replaced under warranty.

This is not the place for further discussion of this, although I would love to. PM me or check into PriusChat.com BBS. My handle there is Doc Willie.

Awesome, S'Kai! I love themed cars like this and the Prius just lends itself so well to the task.

Yah. the chick magnet thing.

I am however a bit too married to take advantage of it.
