    Same here! Two any color please! (Unless they come in TIDELANDPEARL, which I want)

    If I have a choice of color, it is one Black and one White

    Hang tight Joel...more coming later this week...and I'll post here and with a link to a new thread...and, ultimately, a close to realistic count as to current inventory...Until Danny gets back and I can get REALLY organized with a real-time shopping cart. Darn these people who think they are allowed to go on honeymoons anyway! :rolleyes:

    (PS...colors is and are and seemingly always will be....black, white, red, blue, silver and... DRIFTWOOD PEARL (aka champagne))

    Actually, the white is a pearlescent white, not a flat white like the black is a flat black.

    And the driftwood (champagne) is *really* close to the silver. I thought I had two silver at first but no, one is a champagne color. So anyone who thinks they got something by mistake, look carefully.

    Also....the red is NOT a metallic or pearlescent red, it's a flat red.

    I'm looking into expanding my garage to house the fleet. I'm still considering those racing discs.

    Thanks, Rufaro. They are a ton o' fun.

    Thanks Godiva...and now, remember that no good deed goes unpunished...Would you (and anyone else who so desires, but as you have a full set, as it were... :rolleyes: ), could you(se) please email me with attractive pics of the WeePris...individually...so I have decent pics to use, with full credit of course, in the next go 'round for this, so folks can see what the all of colors more or less look like...? (I am a LOUSY baby photographer...)

    So, I have said it before, and likely will say it again...I am a shameless capitalist...AND I am having too much fun with the weedrivers to stop just yet...

    Kinky, huh? :huh:

    Ah, I was wondering about that because I got a "champagne" but didn't get a silver so I can't compare them side by side. It is metalic and seems to change as much in various light as my full scale Tideland Pearl does.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me.

    Well, other than the non-stop partying going on around here lately, I AM glad to hear that it is NOT really just me....I had to "segregate" the Silvers and the Tideland Pearls into separate boxes 'cause at first grab I was occasionally reaching for the wrong one...And the white, in certain light conditions, CAN be mistaken for the silver...So, if anyone else has gotten the wrong WeePri...PLEASE tell me so I can fix it.

    Dang those teeny tiny bottles of Jack Daniels anyway.... :huh:

    Deadline fast approaching: THESE are the people I need to hear from VIA EMAIL if he/she/they still want her/her/their WeePri(s): narussian (1 black), prius23 (2 blacks), ray_moore (2 silver), and grimbasement (2 red). If I do not receive an email from these individuals by the evening of Wednesday, August 9, the babies will be back in the market for adpotion.


    That would be TONIGHT, gang. If anyone knows these folks and can nudge 'em to contact me with a nay (so I can release the babies) or a yea...so I can invoice 'em...well, please do so. I already have homes for some of these, even before the next shipment arrives from WeePri Central...

    CALLING ALL EXTANT WEEPRI OWNER WANNBES (wannbuys?)!

    Good gnus and bad gnus:

    Good: New shipment has arrived (and I think this batch of WeePri drivers came from AA, since things are MUCH calmer this time around)!!!

    Bad: The "store" is closed for a few days for "inventory assessment." I will post here and start a new thread when we are back up and running.

    For the record, those named as MIA never did contact me, so their WeePris are going back into the general inventory.

    PLEASE wait--PRIUS ZENPATIENCE--for me to get back to y'all before asking me to send any cars to you.

    Thanks all!

    So, did some red ones find their way back onto the market? If so, I might be interested in one (since I am currently waiting for a red 2007 #4 :D )

    it had a small alignment issue, actually... i had to tinker with it a bit to make the pullback action work for more than an inch or so, but it's all good now. DH is gonna flip when he sees this!

    You might want to go to http://www.ocprius.com/toycars.html. There are 1/34 scale Prius models and the front doors are openable.

    Yup. She has 'em, the same cars, and is selling 'em for less than I can because she found a local source to which she pays less than I do. Oh yeah...and PriusChat gets $1/car toll as well from the WeePri drivers and me...

    I have more back in stock also and will be up and running and taking orders before the weekend is out.

    Back soon gang!

    Hope to see you there! :)
