Reintroduction. Two hybrids.

I don't know if I need to introduce myself, but I've been away for a while so I figured why not.

I couldn't remember my old password nor could I get access to the email address I think I had back then. So I have another screen name. It used to be Isaac Zackary, almost the same.

Anyhow I still have the Avalon HV and now bought a 2006 Prius for $300 with bad batteries and catalytic converter, and a few other things. Anyhow, I got the batteries figured out and working. I took the HV battery apart, charged each module then discharged each one and recorded the capacities. One module was bad, but I changed out two others as well. So for less than $400 I now have a running Prius.

Oh, my insurance also went down again. When I had gotten rid of my 1985 Golf Diesel my insurance actually went up since the multi car discount is apparently bigger than the cost to put liability on a second vehicle. It's only like $15 a month cheaper, but hey, I'll take it.
