Thanks for posting the pictures so quickly.  It was a great time today, The APPY 2B was glad we joined the Rally to Stonehenge.....   I vote for a Drive In and a movie....  99WEST Drive In would be a blast....

Yes the rally is still on starting at Target at 10am..here is an update..As promised, Julia Knittel will be joining us from smart. She is the smart cities Director for the US and has regular communications with Dr. Winkler, the CEO of smart worldwide. This is a great opportunity to rub shoulders with someone, "In the Know." We will have a photographer on a motorcycle that will be taking pics of our group at various locations as a group heading down the road...as well as video. It is my intention to get cds sent out to attendees afterwards.The Winery could not be more excited to have us. Thankfully the Event Director's son is a HUGE smart fan which helped. Live music starts at 1pm and we will have a dedicated winery ambassador for our group. As I'm sure you know, SCP cannot pay for your wine tasting should you choose to taste, but I wanted to pass on some info. They will be tasting 6 wines and the tasting fee is $15.00 per person. They wanted me to let everyone know that cash is preferred since we are little bit away from the tasting room cashier and you will get to keep your tasting glass. Car2go will be joining us! It would seem strange to have a smart parade and not have a Car2go in the group so they are sending a representative with Car2Go swag! I was contacted by the local Newspaper in Goldendale. They will be covering our "Smartian Invasion" of Maryhill Sunday!!!! Awesome! We have exciting news to share with all of you and can't wait. See you Sunday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are we still meeting at the Target tomorrow morning?

I have traded my Smart Car in for a New Scion FR-S so I will not be able to run in the Stonehenge Rally.

The good news is that Jerry Arguello (GArguello@lithia.com ), Brand Manager, Smart Center Portland, 503-936-0108 said he would like to take over and be the organizer of this event. You can contact Jerry with any future questions about this rally you may have. Have a great time at this rally and I sure enjoyed the years being part of the Smart Car Family.

Looks like 15 fellow Smart Owners said they will be at the rally

Here is an update on the Rally to Stonehenge War Memorial, Maryhill, Washington on Sunday June 23, 2013. At last count 12 have said they are attending, 3 said maybe, and 1 said they will join at Hood River

After getting to Stonehenge taking pictures of all the smart Cars, Jodi and I are going Maryhill Museum where there is some picnic tables in various areas around the Museum grounds and have a picnic lunch (glad to have others join us).  There is the Museum to look at, Maryhill Winery nearby has some really good wines if people want to do that, Biggs Junction across the Columbia River has some places to eat, and the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge has some great waterfalls  to see. There is still a lot of daytime for people to do whatever they want to.

I change my own oil every 5,000 miles.  I get the 0W40 at WalMart for $6.59 per quart and either a Mobil, K&N, or Mitch. filter for 13.00. It takes less than a half an hour and I pay about half of what MB charges.

If anyone has had the 40,000 mile service done at the MB dealership in Portland, what was the total cost and how much time did it take them to do the job?

Did they change the break fluid and the antifreeze?

Put me down for attending the Stonehenge drive. 

Comment by Dave Davis on January 5, 2013 at 7:49pm

Jan and I also have it on the calendar for June 23rd.

Comment by Tommy & Jodi on January 5, 2013 at 2:34pm

I'm not sure where the other Smart owners go but I go to Mercedes-Benz of Portland (also the Smart Dealer) to have the oil change done, cost $60.00
