    Saw my first 2010 Prius in the wild this morning headed South I-5 through Haden Island in Portland.

    Best of all, it was same color Blue Ribbon, and I drove along side it for a while and then fell in behind for a 2010 Blue Ribbon parade for about five miles to the I-405 split.

    Couldn't tell for sure if it has solar roof, but the dealer plaques were mostly white, so it couldn't have been Winebuff.

    How's this for seeing another 2010 "in the wild"?

    :eek::rofl:
    I just wasn't getting it when I read the question!

    No, you're "Wong." No parts necessary! I was just hungry, and John and I met up for a quick bite to eat and a couple hours of idle chit-chat about the Prius.

    Same with me here in MA. One other at the dealer but none on the road. It may have to do with the point of origin papers not being in for the cars in MA. My dealer was nice enough to give me a dealer's plate so I could drive it this weekend.

    My local Long Island dealer will have the 2010 Prius in by tomorrow. I will finally try out the seats myself.

    Yup. And it was "Rick this" and "Rick that" all evening!

    We had a great time. And we DID talk about how much fun you were having out there in AZ.

    I'll be back there again in two weeks. Flying, so I can't drive the 2010 over. PM if you have time for a get-together.

    That is a most beautiful picture, and I am glad you had a great meeting and didn't need to run into Checker for any parts, but a planed meetup between two 2010 Prius Owners can hardly be considered "In The Wild", IMHO.

    That's like in the wild but both toilet trained, domesticated and with collars and leads on.

    lol. OK, so maybe it was more like being part of an orchestrated safari. At least we only brought cameras!

    I saw a Blizzard Pearl Prius on the I-5 in Laguna Hills, CA (near Irvine) on Saturday. Over the past week, I saw three Honda Insights in the wild. One actually drove through my neighborhood (I didn't follow it, but I hope it's a neighbor and I will get to see it drive down my street regularly).

    None in the wild yet in AZ other than mine, but most of my driving is in the West Valley.

    Part of the reason I started this thread was in hopes the other Blue Ribbon Prius would read and identify themselves. Imagine, there is a whole nother parallel universe of Non-Priuschatting Prius owners.
