"I go through it as well. I simply say "Dude - my other vehicle is a Honda Shadow Ace 750. Do I look concerned?" What I get tired of is "Huh, huh - Did you wind that thing up this morning to get it going?" Some people are real…"
Hey, Bill. Contact smart center Dallas and see if you can get on their orphan list. I did so when I went in for a test drive back in April, and got Little Miss Smartness on September 27. I feel very, very fortunate that I got one after only a little over 6 month wait. Might work for you, too. Besides, Dallas is closer to Tulsa than Austin. The ladies at smart center Dallas are awesome to work with, you will like them. Keep me posted as to your progress. Your smart will be worth the wait!
I was on the orphan list for about 28 days and I was called by Round Rock smart 3 or 4 times during that period to confirm my Orphan desire. RR smart got, and expects to continue to get, an unencumbered smart from Penske due to it's good customer satisfaction every month which they offered first come to their orphan list. Perhaps your local dealer will have that kind of smart that you can get.
