Story

fter owning a long line of awesome sports cars overseas, my journey with the Prius begins with purchasing a Prius 3 with sunroof from a Priuschat member sight unseen during a move to Mississippi. From an R34 Skyline, to a Celica GT-Four ST205, to an 88' Silvia K's, to a Lancer Evolution and finally to a...Prius. Why a Prius? The videos below will give some insight. During my 10,000 mile Mongol Rally 2016 we ran into quite a few of these cars on our journey, but almost ALL of them were in Mongolia. I couldn't believe my eyes when I watched Gen2 and Gen3 Prius' fording rivers, power through mud and water up to their windows and put to shame more than a few Land Rovers. The video below shows one of the better "roads" in central Mongolia, where we'd been desperately trying to keep up with two large Toyota SUV's, letting them pick a line and following them through the mud. Both sides of the road were muddy steppe as far as the eye could see, and we'd just stopped earlier to tow out another car that got the bright idea to try their luck in the steppe. We pulled over after the SUV's powered through the mud and waited for something else to pick a line we could try. This scene played out may times in Mongolia, with a Prius coming from the horizon at a fast and steady pace, powering through mud and water without a worry before blasting past us, allowing us to pick a suitable place to cross and continue our own adventure. Thus begins my love affair with the Prius. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3L9D533ropE
