Sweet Mother of all that's swell, my new car is ready!




And there was much rejoicing.

There's a place in Portland that sells those "smart cars" (I think?), but I've never seen a convertible version.

I would feel better about driving one of those things around if more people were driving those things around. I just imagine getting hit by one of these 450s or Tundras and I envision something like smashing into a shopping cart with a garbage truck. Eek!

A great commuter car, though. Maybe they and other high efficiency cars should be allowed in the carpool lane, too.

Did you really get one? What fun!

Those things are great. But did you know that in Italy, the smart car is a mid size?

They have 5-star side impact ratings. That is better than most compact cars. They have 4 star front impact ratings and this is on par with most compact cars and far better than most old cars.

Seriously, there are pictures of the accidents between smarts and things like range rovers... the smarts just slid sideways and their door panels were a bit smudged... while the range rover had a smart-sized snarl of twisted metal and wreckage where the hood used to be.

That being said... Congrats Suzyn. I so wanna drive it.

Epilonious - wow?! That is impressive. I will have to take another look at them, then. I don't think I can fit a carseat in them, though. Hmm. CC, you'll have to let us know how it zips! And will u post photos in your FB?
