KIT's STORY

Wheelwell's federal carbon offset credit and dog hair aficionado. I love my Plug-in Prius. It's fastest when I am passing people on the HOV lane during rush hour while going downhill.

We have a little less than 6 hours left on our big #FORTHEBUILD sale, what did everyone get? This is our biggest sale to-date! Enter the code "forthebuild" at checkout!

Hand washing your car yourself, take it to a car wash place/detail place, or run through the regular car wash at the gas station?

Kit Lau96 days ago

For a cool $1g, it's everything you ever needed rolling into one! https://offerup.com/item/detail/488547616/

[]Wilson Oberholzer

Man, if that were closer I'd be tempted to pick it up just to have something that unique. It would make a pretty sweet little drift truck too.

Yeah that works too!

Wish I could make it down for this, and we are heading to the Bay Area, but to the Ocean for the day.

[]Peter J Nielsen

Awesome, I’ll be there with my C30 GT!

Despite the amount of shit Priuses, erm, Priusi(?) get, this dude went out of his way to mod his Prius. Props to this brave man. #spottedmodded

I have a close friend that had that generation of Prius for a while. It was a bit of a strange departure for him, as he is a die hard Honda guy and constantly modifying cars. That said, he actually made the thing look half way decent with some nice subtle touches; new wheels (Rota Grids I think), suspension, gloss black wrap on the roof and a couple more little touches that just made it all work. I think people can be harsh on cosmetic only modifications, but really not every car needs to be or can be "race car" but the Prius showed me that nearly any car can look good, or at least better. Nothing wrong with that in my book. 👌

[]Joost Van Dien

True words!

I believe the correct term is Priusi, pronounced like Pegassi 😂 At least he tried!!

[]Mystic Francois

According to Toyota it's "Prii"

As far as Priuses go, I’m set in my ways. I don’t care what you do to them, its still a Prius at the end of the day. When people ask you what you drive at a car meet or show and you respond Prius, you’re never going to get a good response. There are so much better platforms at the same price point.... just don’t do it!

[]Tom Armstrong

Hahaha yep. Although people used to laugh about me having a Yaris....

[]Sebastian Nounou

They did a public poll a few years ago and officially made the plural of Prius, Prii.

[]Timothy Markworth

I wonder if those rims are actually "big" or if the ludicrously tiny wheelwells are just making a set of 15"s look big.

[]Sac Car Scene

One of the best looking Prius I have seen though.

Saw this for sale at my local Facebook marketplace. It’s $3g, just might have to go do a test drive. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/133414054039145

Awesome

[]Sac Car Scene

Definitely a hillbilly monstrosity. Crazy they used a Z for it.

[]Jon Burbridge

Probably to have a daily driver. Not many people would do that to a Datsun, without some serious amounts of liquor...

[]Jordan Shuster

I think I'm dead.

[]Christopher McDowell EL

You better get your ass back up and continue to look at this misery like the rest of us

Ha! Reminds me of this one I posted about a while back --> https://wheelwell.com/posts/3dia/now-thats-what-i-call-a-yard-sale-sign

[]Wilson Oberholzer

Oh my god, it's perfect. Usually the body put on top of the truck frame is a rusted out hunk of garbage. That thing looks pristine!

[]Ernie Szots

Imagine me pulling out of my driveway, turning onto the street and seeing that lol.

Happy humpday ya'll! If someone gave you $1million tomorrow to buy any car in the world, what would you get?

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Bret Svoboda

Huracan for me. Great styling and can get around a track just as fast as a 918 Spyder with no FI.

[]Tobias Linder

I wouldn't get any other car. I'd instead dump a lot into my current project and make it the dream car I always wanted. Though, possibly I'd get a Nissan 180SX or a Silvia, just because of their legendary drive-ability. Oh, and I'd get an FD Mazda RX-7, because that body is sexy as all hell.

2017 Cadillac CTS-V for me Trackhawk for my wife and nice house pocket the rest

What's your biggest pet peeve about other drivers on the road? (A side from Asian females who drives a Prius *chuckles*) Mine is lane splitting without signaling and going slow on the fast lane. 

Sort by: BESTTOPNEWOLD

[]Sac Car Scene

Sunday drivers! Especially the one's with a van full of people all looking around like they are lost.

[]Thomas Hisaw

People Who Cahnge Lanes Across An Intersection Because They Are In A Turn Lane And Decided They Want To Go Straight Instead!

People Who Hold Up Traffic For 10 Minutes Because They Want To Turn Left On A Busy Intersection!

People Who Ignore Signs That Say “No Left Turn” But They Do So Anyway Instead Of Using The Proper On/Off Ramps!

[]Porsche Duésnburg

Those who impede the left lane... as my grandmum would say "if you won't do the speed, don't impede!"
I won't even mention those who don't use their signals then get pissed when you don't react the way they expect you to because you didn't know what way they were going!

[]Dan Newman

Slow highway entrys

[]Brandon Pettit

People who are touchy with their brakes like c'mon I'm tight behind you do you wanna get rammed

[]Joshua Taylor

Met someone like that on a road trip once. Was stuck behind a person who would tap the brakes every 15seconds like freaking clockwork going 10kmh under the limit with no one ahead of them! I was stuck behind them for an hour and a half!

[]Brandon Pettit

Damn that does suck

[]Kris Acirbo

When you're on the freeway and someone changes lanes infront of u and they slow down!! Like damn it u seen me coming up in ur side mirror can't u wait til I pass!!!

[]Diverse Motors

Exactly:: or even when u leave a small gap so u dont have to ride behind the other car and someone cuts in and makes that gap smaller & makes u brake hard... nonsense

Hey everyone! I see a lot of new faces here, would love to get to know a little bit about you and your builds, and what brought you to Wheelwell!

I am curious and interested to hear and see what everyone's usernames are! With username/special handles, there's usually a unique story behind it. What's yours and what does it mean?

The first oil change in my opinion.

I found out there's different grades of synthetic; if it makes you feel better, i did go full synthetic :D

Apparently there are fake carpool stickers and they're in high demand. Sure glad I got it when i did. It makes the commute a lot eaiser.
