lol @ CA folks in a Prius

haha I found myself next to a Prius with CA plates, heading on I-64w through Indiana ... after I passed him (not furiously in any way), and got back in the right lane, for some reason he started trying to pass me (and get back in front of me)?!

I loved his attempts. Like 6 carlenghts behind me in the left lane, I see the front end of the Prius lift up (as much as it can), he starts to accelerate (from like 80mph), he gets to my rear door, I give it a bit of gas in 5th, no downshift (3 people, full trunk, full tank of gas, ac on ... 80mph is in the heart of 4th gear pull for me) and I start pulling. He kept trying like 3 times. rofl

He then flashed his lights a few times at me as I was getting off at my exit (?!) Did he think we were racing?

The new Ford Fusion Hybrid is a very nice car. The car reviewers think it won't sell well because it looks like a normal sedan and the hybrid crowd wants everyone to know that they are driving a hybrid, hence the popularity of the Prius---it's so odd looking it says, "look at me, I'm doing my part!"
Most Prius drivers are jackasses. Buy an ultra-high mileage car, then go out and race everyone to prove it's not slow; yeah, that makes sense!
