I love the elio! Wouldn't be good for dates though, "how's it back there?",

-If an old school cool car is a citicar!

The citicar would be good for dates (skinny bench seat)!

Glad you wisely chose to insert the word "project" in that that sentence.

-if you like the way 1st gen insights and 3rd gen prii look.

-if you think the mirrors on 3rd gen prii are Huge!

-if you think a metro xfi has plenty power!

-if you want to put a boattail on a VW xl1

-if you would like to put a 1st gen insight engine in your 2nd gen prius, (please tell me if this is possible, i doubt the electronics would allow it though)

You've ever started a conversation by walking over to the next pump and asking "what kind of mileage are you getting in that?" and ending it quickly because both of your pumps clicked.

What kills me is when I'm coastin to a red light and some one comes up behind you, rides your assistance then accelerates in front of you just to slam on the brakes a few moments later

Like they didn't realize the light was red and you have to maintain the limit as long as possible

You know you're an ecomodder if you use a late night open freeway to do 55mph or less without getting hassled by other drivers rather than most drivers using the open freeway to go WOT

I absolutely HATE this. I could have coasted that extra 20 feet! It drives me absolutely insane.

YKYEM when your friend throws rocks at you when you complain when he idles his car to warm it up.
