New Addition to the Stable

Well I don't think I would want to sleep in it, but it does get a little bit better milage than the SMB.

This is our new 3-cylinder 2 seater Smart Car.

At least it fits in the garage!

Re: New Addition to the Stable

How cute. Maybe you can paint the SMB the same color scheme.

Re: New Addition to the Stable

Are you overcompensating for your inner greenie guilt? Or, in this case would it be undercompensating?

Re: New Addition to the Stable

Last year I noticed a full sized RV with a toy hauler at the back and a Smart car inside!

All you have to do is get a small trailer and you have a real 'mini' spare!

Looks like you could almost fit the smart in the van

The photo of the so called "Smart Car" face to face with the SMB says it all.

Pretty much like a go cart. Its low to the ground with not much when it comes to suspension. Its got a little spunk. 75 on the freeway is no problem, you just have to look out for everyone who doesn't see you. We got it for Dina's 2-mile commute car. I take over the Prius, the SMB will find its way to the back yard, and we sell the two Scooters.

The sales person made a point of saying that a bag will actually fit sideways, although you have to take the woods out and and place them between the seats. Heck, take the doors off, mount the bags on the back and take it on the course.

As far as the 4x4 version:
