Who knew the little hybrid could even go that fast? Oh wait, Al Gore III knows it does. Now you can add "The Woz" to the list of folks who've taken the Prius to the limit and beyond. Steve Wozniak, the man known as the "Father of the Apple II" was caught taking his Prius on the PCH a wee bit beyond the speed limit. And by wee bit, we mean like 104 mph. We wonder what his miles-per-gallon were at that speed anyway? [via San Jose Mercury News]
In 10 years there will be a Jalopnik posting that will read a little something like this:
2004 Priamino rolling with duellies. Pictured will be a clapped out Prius with a home-cobbled pickup bed, completed with dual rear wheels (bonus points will be awarded for the use of JC Whitney dually flares from a 70's toyota pickup).
The long dead hybrid drivetrain has been replaced with the flex-fueled goodness of the V8 from a beater G8. Ah the pleasure of burnouts from dual low rolling resistance tarz.
Ah, much better. It was getting a bit hot in here.
