    check this out! someone worked very hard to make a camouflage prius. it caused quite the stir at the dealership. i am told the design is vinyl, but i haven't seen it myself.
    all i can say is, no wonder i haven't seen it. :D

    Stealth through the woods. I guess when you want to kill a deer witout leaving your car the Prius is the only car to have.

    While i was waiting on my Prius a few weeks ago... myself and my brother were walking through Bass Pro Shops, and outside the had a new Tundra withe the Mossy Oak applied to it... the ENTIRE truck. Just as the Prius has been done. I mentioned to him at the time that i should get my Prius done that way when it comes in,... and that i would probably be the only one like it. Guess someone beat me to the idea :)

    :welcome:I like it - Just think, since the Prius is soooooo quite, it MAY be the car for the avid hunter .... thinking about quietly gliding into the woods...The owner wont have to worry about dings, chipped paint, or scratches either...it will all blend in... Bet he has All Weather Mats too!

    Problem is the deer won't see it or hear it coming. WHAM! One heavily damaged Prius and some expensive venison. (Relax, folks, I'm just kidding.)

    With the Prius' notoriously low clearance, I don't see how you can take this thing off road though.

    Well I looked at the photo and I have no idea what you lot are on about, I can't see a Prius in that picture anywhere. I can't even see any car except a couple way in the back ground!

    Hey, maybe these guys are hunting deer from the comfort of their car.
    Illegal, but way out in the country, who's to know.

    Then again, maybe they're shooting a documentary for Nat'l Geographic...
    yeah, right!

    Maybe they're G-Men searching for moon shiners. Maybe it's the Homeland
    Security boys constantly on patrol, scouring the woods for terrorists invading
    from Canada.

    Ohhh I get it... so they can drive around in electric-only mode and call it 'truly stealth.' I've heard of some guys hunting roadside from their pickups....

    why not add an element and make the vehicle itself silent and camouflaged?

    When someone hits it, they can tell the insurance company the Prius was at fault.

    "It was camouflaged. How could I possibly see it!"

    This is obviously to level the playing field. Now the Prius can be feared by the blind and sighted alike!
