    i have never seen so many prii!

    it was refreshing to see so many running around the city and suburbs. i even managed to get a look at one with a hood deflector installed in gig harbor.

    if any of you say a weird guy in the back of a a bmw or a crappy subaru waving at you it was me!:bounce:

    I agree, we visit relatives there (were from the far eastern part of the state) and it's amazing how many Prii you see! Last trip we even saw several Spectra Mica Blues ( like ours) which we rarely see anywhere else.

    The Toyota dealership in Downtown Seattle must've been making a killing. Seems like every other Prius in Seattle sports its license plate frame.

    BTW, the Orange Cab Prius looks pretty cool.

    I didn't make it as far up as Seattle but I *was* surprised that
    Oregon, which seems to be an otherwise fairly progressive state,
    bought into that same no-self-serve idiocy like NJ and a couple
    of others. Then again when I start saying "slowest fill speed"
    and explaining about bladder tanks and shakedown to remove trapped
    air, the attendants generally let me finish off the tank anyways.
    .
    In general, one of the metrics of a city/state/whatever's awareness
    is definitely how many Priii are running around.

    A few years ago, there was a mandate passed that said all Seattleites must trade in their Suburu Outbacks for Prii.

    :-D
