Do you think hybrids like the Toyota Prius are a hippie`s version of a status symbol?

Nah. There's an environmental conscience involved, sure, but there's also economy.

I read an interesting newspaper column where a guy was saying that they were ironically bad for the environment in that they will allow urban sprawl to continue.

Aren't hippies supposed to be poor?

My car is a Prius.
I love it.
It gets 50mpg.

No. They project an image of environmental consciousness, of course, but few people would buy them just as a status symbol, rather than out of their concern for the environment. If I had the money and if my current ride wasn't so nice and didn't get such good mileage, I'd be driving a hybrid.

I was going to say something like that.

The downside to hybrids is that most of what is saved in fuel costs is eaten up by maintenance costs. Not just anyone can work on these cars.

They are a status symbol for people who like to smell their own farts.

No, I don't even see a connection.

Hippies don't have money.

I know hippies with money, it's not impossible
