Did it have Canadian plates?

We got 'em scurrying all over our streets, at least in Vancouver.

My friends and I were trying to figure out how I would get inside this thing to drive when we saw one :AH-HA_wink:

:lol: Look how far back he's parked in that spot. That's the courteous way to park a Smart. Otherwise imagine all the rear end damage from people starting to pull into a supposedly empty spot and then WHAM! Hit a Smart.

I saw one down here with Quebec plates. That's right - someone drove from Canada to Florida in one of those little $h!boxes.

I saw one yesterday morning on my way home from work. It was just coming up by McChord AFB and heading into Tacoma.

Looked a bit strange considering I had just passed a semi going the other way.

I've seen a few here in Denver..probably from Zap. They had one on display at the Denver Auto Show last April..sticker price $25k.

Too bad the Smart roadster is no more..I've seen them in Europe..really neat little sports car.

There is a signage shop around the corner from me in Blue Mound that has three of these out front. They're used as advertising for the sign shop. I thought at first that they were those little GEM electric cars, but on a closer look they are the Smart ForTwos.

Haven't seen any of them driven on the road, but I'll snap some pictures the next time I drive that direction.

Those things are going to be in some horrific traffic accidents.

I can see the headlines now:  "Hummer drives over Smart".

I see these every day, and no, they don't strike me as being something that'll just get crushed by a Hummer.

I have had the delight to see a smart sandwiched in between an H2 and a Ford Expedition on a three lane road before, :lol:

whats under the hood of those bad boys?

Nothing! The engine is in the back and it's rear-drive.

The engine range includes like 3-cylinder diesel and petrol units, and maybe a tiny 4, but I doubt it.
