Yes. Getting two sections in place then I’ll shorten the Prius.

As a lifelong Karmann Ghia freak, I must say that I oppose any opposition to this project with every fiber of my being.

Good on ya, Hoopie!

I'm betting you get better mpg than a stock Prius, despite the higher drag. I love the contrails that spin behind a Ghia in the fog or drizzle...
