You've gotta love those wacky folks at The New York Times! They gave George Barris (pictured), the guy who gave us the original TV-show Batmobile, 10 grand and a white Prius and had him - what else? - Kustomize it! More pictures of the Tangerine Gold result are here (registration required). I'm waiting for a west coast paper to take up the challenge and sign up Chip Foose or Boyd Coddington.

In the process the Times found a few backyard hybrid hot-rodders who dared to tinker with the Prius' electronics and drivetrain. I'm sure this is only the beginning…
