The car race is on

Today I put in my deposit to get on the waiting list for a Toyota Prius. In San Francisco, the wait time has increased from 3-4 months to 4-6 months. Apparently Peter Jennings and his crew came down to interview the dealership here because they sell more Prius(es?) than anyone else in the country; you can see the show tomorrow night.

The race in this case is between my potential future Prius, and my existing, 17-year-old, 181-thousand-mile, Honda Accord. Will the Prius get here before the Honda demands yet more expensive and not cost-worthy repairs, or gives up entirely? I’ll keep folks apprised of the drama.
