Yeah, it's just me, but I have some friends that come hangout and help. A lot of support. None of them tried to sabotage my idea. They thought I was crazy, but in a good way.

You presume correctly, sir!

Typically our highest traffic days each month are the couple right after we send out our e-mail newsletter (roughly 25-35% more than average).

The hits from MSN might equal that size "bump" today.

Hoopie,

I just caught up on this thread from the beginning. That is quite an interesting idea and process to an interesting and useful vehicle. I really appreciate you doing this and especially sharing not only the thousands of engineering issues you had to overcome, but the process. A very interesting story.
Best Regards moving forward.

It's not all that crazy....
OK, I HAVE to know. How did you spend less than $500 for an 07 Prius, all inclusive minus safety costs?

I am going to need to step up my game (or... develop one) when you get better fuel economy than me in a fifty year-old Firebird!

Ooh! Enter it into the Green Grand Prix!
