[auto,quote,fun] Toyota Prius QotD*2

Две прекрасные цытаты про Приус.

  1. The area around WTC 7 where I work has one of the densest concentrations of Toyota Priuses in New York: a lot of them were purchased by the governmental agencies. Whole blocks near Centre street are filled in the followng manner: Prius, Prius, Prius, rusty Dodge Ram, Crown Vic, Prius, Prius, Prius. Yesterday I was almost run over by a Prius double parked near an intersection: it started moving, but it did not register with me because it made no sound at all. Modern cars are very quet, but they all vrooom when starting up, and you kind of epect that from a parked car. This made me remember a scene in The Weeds, where gang leader U-Turn buys himself a Prius because it’s a great car for drive-by shooting: very quiet in electric mode, great for sneaking up on people.

  2. Запарковавшись у Гугла, найти свой Приус совершенно невозможно. Стоят ряды тёмно-серых Приусов, как бывалоча Волги на заднем дворе МинЭнергоМаша.
