    my kid uses up a few minutes of his fame 15

    Somehow my son got picked from the Prius discussion forum to go to Detroit and get a preview of a concept Prius. He had a ball as can be seen on this video.
    As you can see, I got all the good looks in the family.

    Very cool, Frank. Congrats to Evan for being one of the chosen testers.

    Detroit or Torrance? He mentioned Torrance in the video.

    Not sure. He is so into the 'green' scene I kinda tune out when he starts talking about it.
    But, he is very happy with his 2005 Prius and their Toyota SUV hybrid (I don't know model) that I might consider one someday.
    The plug-in they were testing makes big sense, IMHO. Plug in but has a back up conventional engine. The cars with a limited range make no sense at all to me. Run out of juice and you are worse off than down stream without a paddle.

    He just posted some snapshots on FaceBook, it was Torance. They sure wined and dined sumptiously. Looks like a neat place.
