FFH in the wild

I was driving to work today (miserable, rainy) and as I glided up to a light I thought I saw that familiar rear end.  Could it be?  Did it have the tell-tale "hybrid" logo?  Yes!  It was a light blue Ford Fusion Hybrid!  I waved at the driver but I doubt he/she saw me.

I watched to see how he would pull away from the light - usually I can make it to work from this light in EV mode, but you need to start slow over a little rise at the light before going downhill.  He took off from the light though and left me to creep over the rise.

First FFH (besides mine) spotted in the wild!  :-)

That is great. I have not seen one around yet, but several people at my office have asked me about mine.

I saw a Sterling Gray model (same color as mine) right in front of me, a couple weeks before mine arrived. Of course I wondered if my order had been hijacked. :)

A few weeks after we brought home our White Platinum FFH, we went out to dinner. Walking from our car to the restaurant, we saw another White Platinum FFH parked on the street. The only way I could tell it wasn't mine was they got the leather seats.

I thought I had spotted one on my trip from NC to PA. last week. As I got closer it turned out to be a flex fuel model with the similar emblem on the back. I am still looking. I really enjoyed the Sirrius radio especially in the parking lot on I-95 from DC south to Fredricksburg. Creeping along in EV mode worked well.
I decided on the Stereo mode for best sound.
Great Car

I have seen a few Ford Fusions in Hawaii on vacation but could not get close enough to see if they were Hybrids. One was an SEL I think.

I saw two in less than twelve hours:

Last night I was walkng with my family on the local University Campus and we saw a FFH belonging to the University. It was the Atlantis Green, a color I almost ordered.

This morning I saw a MMH driving to work. It was tuxedo black just like mine. It was the first time I had seen the Mercury version and I must say, I like my FFH better.

I did order the Atlantis Green; decided it was too dark though. I'm looking forward to seeing the MMH - in pictures it looks nice - understated and classy.
