How bad do you want a hybrid?

Bad enough to build one?

I dare anyone on this forum to go for it.

A while back, I was all set to buy a CRX for possible conversion to hybrid. (It was the direct predecessor of the Insight!) But the punk kid sold it to somebody else first, even though I had an appointment to buy it! (punk kid!)

I have been toying with the idea of converting my truck to hybrid.

A while back, I got to drive a Insight for the first time. I got 69.7 MPG over 20+ miles having no idea what I was doing! Nice little car...
