Why, Why, Why?
I know the Prius is Japanese, but why wasn't this fuel saving technology available decades ago?
I was in Tokyo in 1990, and even then gas was about $2 a liter. I have to wonder why they didn't react to gas prices until we Americans started getting hosed.
I'm not talking about Europe and their tiny clown cars, I'm talking about the world's best auto maker: Japan.
Okay, okay, Mercedes Benz and Porsche are nice cars but I'm talking about cars that most people can actually afford.
Look, we gave the Japanese the mass production technology for automobiles, so as a little thank you, can't they whip up something that runs on water?
