Anyone get duped into buying one of those hybrid cars?

so much for 50+ mpg - try 30.
OBTW - let me tell you about my first car. When I was young I went over to this old lady's house once every few months with my mom - just being nice to an old recluse. Well, she passed away about a month before my 16th birthday and I was informed I was included in her will. Cool, I thought - but she was a collector, so it could have been any old piece of junk in her basement.
Turns out she had a car. 1964 Nash Rambler - mint. Original everything. Less than 20,000 miles on it. Even the little clock still worked. And she left it to me.
