Nobody deserves this. But, i've seen the other side of this too.

Gareth Groves's Hummer was parked on his street in American University Park for five days before two masked men were seen taking bats to it.

William Cottrell, the 24-year-old Caltech grad student who vandalized and firebombed several Hummer dealerships, was convicted on Friday and may get up to five years imprisonment for damaging millions of dollars worth of Hummers and other SUV's in August of 2003. Contrell and two other tree hugging co-conspirators "allegedly" spray-painted slogans such as "POLLUTER" and "SUV Earth Liberation Front" however the co-conspirators fled the country to avoid prosecution.

It's sad that people have to resort to violence to get their points across.

^^^^ Thanks. I was going to brign that up too. Neither of them is right. I hate it when people mess with other people's stuff. But it happens at both ends of the spectrum. I wonder how many Prius owners are responsible for the Hummer vandalism and vice versa. :rolleyes:

The thought of ramming a Pruis with my LR, sounds tempting.:cool: However I just overdrive them with either of my STS's and frighten the women driving them.:lmao:

I would support legislation to add $20K, import tariffs on all Pruis vehicles!:rolleyes:


:drive:

Well maybe if so many of them weren't so smug about driving one, people wouldn't get pissed at them. Nobody gives a crap how many MPGs you get or how much better you are since your car doesn't emit as much exhaust. Quit acting as if you're better than me because we have two trucks. It just so happens that I love both of them, and there will always be a place for a truck or SUV in my garage no matter how high gas prices go up.

And this goes for all future Volt drivers as well. Don't be smug about it. Don't show off your cars. Don't tell people how awesome you are because you don't use gas. No matter how awesome the Volt is, we do NOT want the same thing that's happening to priuses to happen to Volts.

However, if a prius driver decides to argue that his or her prius is better than your Volt, then go ahead and rub the "no gas" thing in their face. :D

I don't touch other people's property.......

But if I come up behind them on the freeway doing 50, or doing all the crazy things they do to eek out another mile or two per gallon, I will pass them. I won't honk the horn or give them the finger or anything like that, just pass them. Right now I only have a 200 horse 4 cylinder.....

But when I get my SS Camaro, :zippy:
