Lamborghini, Prius. Close enough for 3-year-old

By Mary Lowry

My favorite car guy is Ben Lowry. He’s my 3-year-old grandson. Over the years, Ben has accumulated an impressive car collection, including three Lamborghini Gallardos and several other exotics.

As soon as Ben was old enough to pay attention to real cars, he saw a Toyota Prius and shouted “Yambaghini!”

Ben still thinks every Prius sedan he sees is a Lamborghini. And, like all car guys, he has a keen eye for spotting them. I was with him recently on the 15th floor of a Seattle hotel, both of us looking out a big window facing Puget Sound. He said “Yambaghini!” and pointed to a Prius sedan parked three blocks away.
