I read in DUB magazine today that SMART is going to be sold in America!!! :D If you haven't seen these cars they're soooo cool!! If I had the money I'd get one. Anyway, it says they are going to cost between 12-20,000 for one. They're two seaters and they get about....38 mpg. Very cool lookin car. :) I love them about as much as I love my Toaster!!

That'd be sooo cool to have one. You can do so much stuff to them. Don't think I'd fit in one though....too tall....too much legs. LOL. :D

They are cute - saw a bunch scurrying around in traffic last time I was in Canada - but the local distributor in this area is pricing the little 60HP, 2-seat runabout in the $30K range... Too much.

Can't imagine ONE of THOSE being worth TWO xBs... Uh-uh.

That's actually one of the neat things about racing someone with an xB: No one can tell... :D

If you never leave town they would be a decent option. They just can't keep up on the Interstates though out here in the Midwest.

I saw one running up I-35 outside of KC last Fall and we blew by it in a tC at about 70 like it was standing still. I felt scared for those poor bastards in the thing.

i just saw one of these on the road right out in front of my work about a week ago. Also, my parents saw one that exact same week. We are not sure if it was the same one or not, but they are starting to pop up we have noticed.
