    Besides, you can't pull a horse trailer with a Prius, which makes it purdy much useless.
    Prius is the third safest car on sale in Europe apparently, after the Golf and the Honda Insight. Not sure the study looks at trucks.

    That's not surprising.... not much happens when two roller skates bump into each other.

    And that's kind of a good thing, no? Of course, that means that roller skates are starting to look damn good, eh?

    Not if you have to haul anything.

    When he said market, I think he was referring to Kroger or Albertson's.

    Some of them. The H1 was a civilian version of the Humvee and had the same capabilities. Foir off-road utility, there is nothing better.
