    No worries, figured I was missing some Canadian cultural reference. In passing, this quote:
    As to the video, agreed that we don't wish a head gasket failure on NAB just for our beneft!

    You're in luck then, cause the Prime isn't all electric:).

    Only rated for 25 miles of electric range;).

    So when you upgrading :whistle:?

    Once you try it, you won't go back (y).

    There's still a case to be made for the plain hybrid. (y)

    Especially in these COVID times, when you're driving maybe 100 miles a month, lol.

    Did over 400 miles this week as I was "essential personnel":whistle:.

    I am doing a 2 week on and 2 week home office swap with one of my staff as he can fill in as the leader and we keep as few people as possible at the site;).

    Social distancing is a thing and we all need to respect that:).

    Stay at home for the essential folks to keep the needed infrastructure running(y).

    Not a Jeep with their Fantastic bumpers:p.

    Or you'll be in the market for the electric Hummer coming up:).

    Go big(y).

    I never did get behind the wheel of the Wrangler loaner our daughter had. She wasn't that impressed with it, and her usual ride was a Pilot. I think I'm cured. Maybe... :sneaky:

    A co-worker has a 4 door wrangler:).

    It is more modern than I expected. Hard to see out of though in comparison to the RX450h I drive occasionally;).

    But as urban assault vehicles go, they don't get much better than the utilitarian Jeep(y).

    This discussion made me think of this :

    Toyota Prius Is the Best Apocalypse Vehicle

    From road and track no less...(y)

    P.S. - The artwork in the article is cool...I like the huge gun on top on the Prius.
