Wow is this place dead. I remember when (before I got my smart) this place was very active. Wonder what happened to everyone.
Comment by Kerry Novick on November 22, 2008 at 11:33pm
Has anyone yet talked to city officials where you live about dedicated parking places or parking meter 1/2 prices? Seems to me we deserve it for taking up less room!

If you haven't had a chance, check out the video montage I created from photos submitted to this site. "I'm In Love With My Car" is the title in the "Videos" section.

How many times did you spot your smart?

Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix – Labor Day Weekend - August 30th & 31st

NOTE: This is an advance announcement to allow you to make plans. We are waiting for a link to Ticket Master to be added to the Grand Prix web site. Once that is complete a formal announcement will be posted and you will be able to order the “smart corral” ticket packages at greatly reduced prices.

All smart owners worldwide are invited to the “smart corral” at the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.

The smart Michigan Users Group (sMUG – The Home Team) with the support of smart center Bloomfield, has made arrangements for a “smart corral” at the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix.

Tickets include:
• Priority on island parking – leave and return as often as wanted
• Reserved Seats in Grandstand #3 (fantastic seats!)
• Access to the Firestone Paddock (where teams work on their cars)
• Parade Laps on the Track on Saturday at 7PM
• Drivers Autograph Session (in the paddock)
• smart Car Show Judging (categories TBD)
• Grand Prix Bucks (redeemable for food)
• Free Concert on Saturday at 6PM – Sugar Ray
• And much more…

sMUG – The Home Team is excited to be able to host this event and encourages you to attend and help make this the largest smart gathering in the USA. With Canada right across the river we expect an international flavor with both 450’s and 451’s in attendance.

We will have a small Welcome Center/Hospitality tent in the “smart corral” and smart center Bloomfield will be giving away promotional smart t-shirts to the first 100 owners that enter the “smart corral” on Saturday or Sunday.

The Detroit Grand Prix web site will add a link on their tickets page soon where you will be able to purchase these “smart corral” packages directly.

IMPORTANT! Please reply on this thread if you will be attending so we can estimate the number of smarties to plan for at the “smart corral”. Stay tuned for additional information regarding this exciting sMUG – The Home Team sponsored event.

Please check back for complete pricing and ordering information on the “smart corral” packages available. Please note that you can select a package for 1 – 3 days. The packages are limited to two people per smart car.

Is there a Smart owner in Ann Arbor who would let us test drive the car? We have been waiting so long that we want to refresh our memories... thanks.
Comment by Roger Stam on June 26, 2008 at 5:33pm
I think it's a great idea if you want to organize a trip to TC. We always looking for more events to enjoy our smarts.

I don't think there is anything other than the Grand Rapids 4th of July parade scheduled to July right now.

Pick a date and run with it. Let me know I can help. I've got a mailing list I could send you announcement to and you can post it here and in the events section. Thanks for the offer.

Hey there - who drives the yellow/black in Farmington Hills, parked across from Nino Salvaggio on 14/Middlebelt? I see you every day!

Anyone interested in taking a trip up to Traverse and hit the wineries in the area and hang out downtown or in Suttons Bay? I would be more than willing to organize something if need be!
