Really now, I should turn on a light when I'm typing or find spellcheck!

ahhhhhhhhhh, a Chicago group! I'm near the lake a close to Evanston. I got my 2mato on 6/16 as a b-ady present to myself. Looking forward to meeting everyone. I passed a white/silver w/ crome package on LSD tonait and he exited at Irving park.I have seen so far a bumblebee in Evanston, a blue on Mc Cormick, a triple black on Clark and now the white.

Here's a thought... I am waiting since March, I suggest when a member gets smart, (car) they buy the pizza at a pizza downtown joint. ( Pizza only -not a bar tab) As new members get their orders filled we explore more pizza joints

Live in Morris, came on board Smart World March 08. There is another Smart in Morris, a friend who ordered one the same day I brought mine home but wound up getting an orphan. There are two more one town over from us, and FOUR people in this area came up to me and said they were on the waiting list. Why Grundy County is a Smart Car vortex I have no idea... this is about as far from an urban setting as one could get.
We were both in the recent Morris Cruise Night and I prepared hand-outs to give truly interested people, and they were all handed out. Might not just be the Smart... maybe it's just the gas? Dunno, but this car sure does make people think.

I bought an orphan. My delivery date was 02/09 and I signed up around June of 2007. I've read some messages that they've discountined this list. I'll talk to my dealership in the next week to confirm and get back to you all. After signing up, I was offered 2 cars in a week and there was only a $100 deposit to get on the list. The $100 was then applied to the purchase price. Loeber Moters in Lincolnwood has been great! It might have gotten out of control elsewhere? They are being very careful not to taint the order process or hype the vehicle when they knew they couldn't deliver. That's why they didn't even attend the Chicago Auto Show. As far as I know, only 25,000 will be shipped to the U.S.A. this year and the plant in France is going full blast....

I'm in SE WI, but grew up watching and rooting for the Cubbies so I figure I'm a good fit for the group. Got the Tardis on 4/26/08 and have driven it everywhere since. Love it.

I am in Aurora, and I just reserved a Smart on 6/7. Guess I have a long long wait!
