Saw a truckload of Smartcars on the PA Turnpike yesterday. They had this http://www.zapworld.com/ website on the back of the cars. FWIW the cars are about 8' long as they fit nicely sideways on a flatbed tractor trailer truck.
That will be key.
I'd have one for around town if they're cheap.
I hate parking.
I hate spending tons on gas to go shopping.
There are supposed to be three models coming in 2008 - we'll see.
I've seen them up close. Once you do, you'll think twice about being anywhere in one except maybe a golf course, towing your bag, 'cause it sure isn't going inside the car. And they aren't cheap. The '05 I saw was 28,000. Watch the vid link. Driver would be in deep ka ka in a collision. But for those of you who will get them, here is your start for filters, oils, and performance parts.... http://www.smarttune.co.uk
