    It has been a while, been waiting and it is such a nice feeling!

    Drive home from work and still daylight out at 7pm, thanks to the "spring ahead" this weekend.
    3.2 miles. and got 73.6mpg in my 2014 Prius "c"

    That is why I still love my Moon Glow!

    I started out with a white 2012 "c"
    I waited in line for that puppy, but then got the "blizzard pearl" equivalent upgrade
    at the same time as the OG Blizzard Pearl 2015 liftback to match.

    Did a nice wash this weekend and after 5.5 years of love, they both love back!

    A few uncensored engine shots...my "c" with the 12v charger attached.

    You had me going for a bit, then realized: those are two separate engine bays, and the second is a 3rd gen.

    Ahhh lol. I breezed right through and didn’t look at the details. I didn’t know there is an engine cover for the Yaris hybrid that fits.
