    I'm surprised to see so many gear heads on this forum! I figured I'd start a thread to share your projects and what your goals are with the prius. Thread format:

    List of modified cars owned and sold including goals, modifications and hp / tq numbers if available. Also if you autox, drag or show your car.

    Reason for getting a 2010+ prius and goals and current modifications.

    And of course, I'll start! =)

    Very nice! I bet that was a blast to drive. :)

    Honestly, listing all of my cars and trucks with every mod would be way too time consuming and probably boring to read so I'll just list the cars/trucks in order with their big mods, HP and 1/4mile times along with pics. Keep it short and sweet. :)

    1990 Chevrolet 454SS pickup - All show with custom paint. The pics don,t show all of the crazy pearl and ghost graphics.

    1987 Ford Mustang GT - Built 351W low compression with Vortech S-Trim blower, C4 trans, 1000hp Aeromotive fuel system, etc etc. ran only once with the final combo and went 6.8seconds in the 1/8th mile. I sold it before I had the bugs worked out. The old 306cid engine with S-trim ran low 11s all day long.

    No M3, it was just a C5. I left out the Chevy truck because it was slow at 14.92 in the 1/4. It had a nice hood ornament though.
