    1. How many times are you on priuschat a day? too many
    2. How many times a day do you think of your new car? continuously
    3. What color and make did you FINALLY decide on? Prius IV w/ Soldar, Blizzard Pearl w/ Misty Gray interior.
    4. How many have already thought about mats, extras, etc to equip car? My order comes w/ floor mats, and I've pinged my dealer on pricing for the rest.
    5. Who has begun the hunt for the perfect vanity license plate? I already have the coolest coincidental HOV plate in AZ (01L N00, looks like OIL, NOO!) and will transfer it to the new car.
    6. Who has the best vanity plate for a Prius that they can share? If I didn't have the hybrid plate, I'd probably get SLR ROOF or SOLAR RF.
    7. How many are saving on their household budget to get one more fluffy add on for your new car? Does selling stock count?
    8. Who thinks this site is "the bomb" amd we are so much more informed and blessed than the general public? We equip ourselves to be the informers in this case.
    9. How far are you willing to drive to find a dealer who can get your car early? I picked my dealer in January, well before they knew it.
    10. Who needs valium to calm down for the upcoming excitement of waiting for the boat to arrive? ( I am in Portland, Or, yay) I think my wife thinks I need Valium. I think I'll settle down once I've picked apart the car and figured out just about everything there is to figure out. ;)

    I probably won't have "the" first car, but Priority folks do have a slight unfair advantage in this deal.

    Countdown quiz for something to pass the next few weeks
    1. How many times are you on priuschat a day?
    First thing in the morning and last thing at night, just once a day! No, not really but most of my spare time. I don't watch TV much. I do log in first thing in the morning and I am always late to bed because of PriusChat.
    2. How many times a day do you think of your new car?
    All the bloody time!
    3. What color and make did you FINALLY decide on?
    I'll get a Blizzard Pearl when I do buy but that may not be for a while now. Of course It will be a Toyota. Base, if you meant what trim level.
    4. How many have already thought about mats, extras, etc to equip car?
    I don't know, I haven't asked.
    5. Who has begun the hunt for the perfect vanity liscense plate?
    I already have it, SPARK5
    6. Who has the best vanity plate for a Prius that they can share?
    SPARK5 fits my Prius like a glove.
    7. How many are saving on their household budget to get one more fluffy add on for your new car?
    I just go deeper into debt.
    8. Who thinks this site is "the bomb" and we are so much more informed and blessed than the general public?
    Everyone thinks that if they have been on the site.
    9. How far are you willing to drive to find a dealer who can get your car early?
    Not at all.
    10. Who needs valium to calm down for the upcoming excitement of waiting for the boat to arrive? ( I am in Portland, Or, yay)
    Drugs are bad, I use alcohol.

    A prize should be awarded for the first photo of someone with their new 2010.

Penfolds, Rosemount and a bunch of boutique wineries. 4000 items around in the world to be exact. I sell wholesale to restaurants and hotels. Lucky you, great place to live.

    Ran into this on HybridCarBlog.com
    If these numbers turn out to be correct, "Frenzy" may be the operative word for us buyers.

    shhhhh - let's keep all the good stuff about the '10 Prius to ourselves until around August...

    2010 Prius orders rolling in, ROLLING

    Toyota's cure for the auto recession?

    By June Toyota will be producing 50,000 Prius hybrids per month, a 25 percent increase in production from Toyota's original plans.

    GreenCarCongress reports, "Pre-orders for the new hybrid began in April, and exceeded 40,000 early last week. They are expected to keep climbing to anywhere between 60,000 and 70,000 before the launch date, indicating unusually robust demand for a new model."

    And Honda wants to sell 100,000 Insights per year? Which hybrid is for all of us?

    I'm not trying to rip on Honda or the Insight, but 70,000 Prii sold before the first one even hits a dealership? And gas prices are cheap today!
