Save the Environment and Stop Funding Islamic Terrorism: Buy a hybrid car!
After a couple of weeks of research, I went for a test drive of a hybrid car yesterday and closed the deal! I have just purchased the 2002 Prius, fully loaded, with a Navigation system, CD, and more.
My new Toyota Prius: 50 Miles per Gallon!
I recently changed jobs and drive about 40x2 miles to/from work - my 2000 Dodge Intrepid is nice, but it doesn't get more than 17 PMG... Here are some of the reasons I couldn't resist:
1) Less money for Saudi-Arabia and Iraq (and therefore less money for Al-Qaeda and other Islamic terrorists - see http://www.boycott-middle-east-oil.com )
2) Help for the environment: the Prius emits 90% less NOx (Nitrogen Oxides) and 50% less CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) than other cars.
3) 45-52 Miles Per Gallon (MPG) - it easily beats the Intrepid.
4) 0% APR financing (no interest during the Toyotathon 2003 until January 6th)
5) $2000 US Federal tax deduction
6) Got $2000 off the sticker price
7) The onboard computer is awesome - digital is the way to go. There's a fully loaded GPS/navigation system, kind of like having Mapquest.com at your fingertips. The radio and many other functions are all done through the touch-screen display. I can see so many possibilities for MP3 players, hacks...
8) Cool silent/stealth mode - when the electric motor takes over completely, you can't hear the car. You are also fighting noise pollution.
A regular engine and an electric motor:
a formula to save the environment
and help the war on Islamic Terrorism
I haven't been so excited about a car since I was a teenager! There are about 120,000 hybrid cars in the US today, and it's a pity that only two of the car manufacturers, Toyota and Honda, offer hybrids in the US. This could truly be a bipartisan issue: the Democrats/Doves in favor of saving the environment, while the Republicans/Hawks in favor of not giving more money to Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and other countries that support Al-Qaeda and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

You if the power's coming from
The engine or the motor.
http://www.priusonline.com/ - A great online forum for owners of Toyota Prius's. There's also an email group at http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/toyota-prius/ . Read the posts and you'll notice that pretty much everybody is in love with their Prius.
Fully digital AM/FM radio and CD
Through the touch-screen display

The Prius looks small from the outside
But the cabin is similar to the Camry's

No need to plug-in the electric motor
It recharges automatically
While you're driving!
Do us all a favor and buy a Prius: when you're filling up your 6-Miles-Per-Gallon SUV you're not only killing the environment but you're also directly funding Al-Qaeda, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and other Islamic murderers.
