Looks like one to me too. I suppose it could be a Cutlass or 76-77 Regal too. Hard to say for sure but looks like a M/C paint color.

LOL @ the Prius!

I remember back in the 70's Honda, Toyota, Datsun and even small Chevy cars and trucks (Chevy Luv) could get close 40 MPG's w/ a 4 banger mated to a 4 or 5 speed trans.  Problem is we don't want small here- we want big a$$ 7-8 passenger SUV's & Trucks that are comfortable (& there's nothing wrong with that either).

That whole hybrid & electric only stuff is for the birds.  It's all about creating an industry based on the global warming religion, selling you batteries that cost $7000 so you can trade carbon credits on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.  They're trying to dismantle cheap energy (or it was) like oil & coal so they can tuck it to us even more.  Getting gas & clean diesel engines to run more efficiently is what we need to focus on IMHO.  Any time I see a Prius & I want to laugh.  Sorry for the rant!

That is nice. I think that if you dropped it down a little bit more in the front it would be perfect. I just like a little rake on my g3s.
