Sometimes I wonder how Henry Ford and Zora Arkus-Duntov would react to those Prius-powered old irons.

Have we discussed how the Firebrid will be silent in electric-only mode? Bill, are you cool with that?

The Prius V chassis has an annoying noise maker that sounds at low speed when the engine is off. I plan to replace it with the sound of the Doctor Who Tardis interior hum from the TV show. should be an easy swap-out.

Would you know which pictures are missing from #1, #5, and #12, it would be great if you could put those back. Thanks!

I'll research it over the weekend and see what I can do. Fortunately, I saved .pdf files of most of the early pages before Photobucket pooped in their chili.

Put all those pictures into a binder and title it "HOW TO DEW IT"
