Hybrid Spotting

The first hybrid I spotted while driving my brand spanking new 2004 Prius was an Insight. That was cool, since there aren't too many around here (Minnesota). But unfortunately, the driver didn't notice me. Would you?

I had a fun time way back playing with Insights on the road with my 2001 Prius. At first, they'd think I was just trying to get their attention to acknowledge their hybrid. Then after giving the thumbs up to them, I'd point at mine... then just stare. Eventually, some would light up with a expression of new found happiness realizing the encounter that just transpired. I'm very much looking forward to same again. So, start scanning the roads for a new hybrid.

Have any of you seen a 2004 Prius on the road yet?

At night, both the back & front are quite unique. During the day, the front may be tough. The back is easier, with the Insight style little tinted back window. And of course, the side-profile is pretty obvious.

___I have only seen 4 Insight’s in my life here in the Chicago area and I have been looking for them very very hard as of the last 3 months :( No 04 Prius’ yet either but I have seen a few 01-03’s ...
I live reasonably close to Hunt Club Farms and see both Insights and pre 04 Prius' all the time on 94/294 as well as on the surface streets like 21 or 120. Probably about 5 Insights and 20 Prius' a week on average.

You should see my Red Insight over on the right getting 100MPG. (OK, you'll sometimes find me on the left passing everyone at 90+MPH but only when I'm late.)

'00 Red 4453 AC 77.5LMPG 44K miles 0 recals.
