My favorite things about smart
there just cool, they are small but big inside, you can park them anywhere.
About Me
I have been obsessed with getting a smart car since 1998. I have had friends who went to europe take pictures of them for me. I have bored all my friends to tears with my plans on how I could get one. I want to leave a smaller footprint.
My smart's name
I will have to get mine and play in it before I know.

well, it looks like either my reservation number was not high enough, or I did not answer soon enough for the "orphans list". It's crazy how much I want this car. I am a pretty patient guy, especially when you consider I have already been waiting for 8 years, but I would like to be able to go to my local dealership and pic up one now. I am having the same issue with the Iphone, I waited the year for the 3-g model to come out and now I am going to pick one up on july 11th.

well, after printing my first blog, I received an e-mail this weekend from the dealership about the Orphan List, the e-mail was sent on Sat and I did not open my e-mails till Monday, I replied, and I hope I get the one I am interested in, a passion, in white and a black tridion, I think it has a red interior, a little odd configuration but still, I dont see any reason why I could'nt buy an orphan now and when my smart came in sell the orphan, and pick up mine.

So, here begins the written word for my quest for a smart car. I first became aware of the smart car in 99. I was fasinated by the little cute car. I live in Seattle on Capitol hill and parking has always been a consideration, I am sure its like that for most major cities. Back in the early days of desiring this vehicle, I tried to find a way to get one here in the US. I figured if they can get the really expensive cars brought over from Europe why cant I get a smart? None of the avenues I… Continue

Andy, sad to hear that you didn't get a call back on the orphan list that went out last week. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you and hopefully you'll be a winner the next time around!

Well, it's weird, reactions from some. So far, as I say, only Smart owners or wannabes have been negative toward me and my chameleon green Sportacus. Often I think people are trying to be funny but they come off negative. Sign of the times I think.

you should get an email confirming your inputted configuration. then when your car arrives you will get a call from the car dealership in your area who has been assigned to sell them. (you can verify which one it should be by going on the smartusa website and search for locations in your area. when it gets close to October I would then start calling them and inquiring on the car. (the email confirmation of the configuration of your car that you inputted should have a confirmation number on that. that's the number you would tell the dealer)
