Phil's modded Toyota T-100 spotted in the wild & posted on Jalopnik. Comments ensue!

Someone apparently spotted Phil's (aerohead's) Toyota T-100 in the wild, and submitted the photo for consideration by the sometimes amusing peanut gallery at Jalopnik:

We called a Geo Metro-mino the ecomod work truck, but this Toyota T-100 is so slippery it'll probably glide through the air with just a push. We just hope the increase in efficiency is worth the ugly

The comments are mostly positive, I'd say. Well... positive, but qualified!

And Elhigh put in a good effort to educate the crowd (nice!).

Surprisingly enough, they didn't really give me anything to criticize. :confused:

Since when did people start caring about how "pretty" their truck was?

Nice find, Neil. It's funny how the car blogs pass around hot topics like chicken pox at a daycare. (We're guilty too.)

The T-100 gets photographed a lot.And one never knows what becomes of it.
I must have been doing EcoModder stuff when the first shot was taken,as it is from outside Copy-Pro,here where I use Al's computer.
The second shot was taken in the parking lot of CVS Pharmacy where I use their photo lab.
Provoking any discussion about efficiency is worth the rubs.And I'm the first to admit she's blemished,so the jibes about aesthetics is okay by me.
When the naysayers learn about the latest test results from my recent trip to Phoenix they may feel less taint when observing all of our attempts at low drag.
Adam may have snickered with his first look at Eve.But I think he got over it.
