Wow, what a day!

We got up at 6am, CST knowing we would eat breakfast later on. We at a little something, fed the cat and bunny, got dressed and left by 6:40. We took a little footage of the way down, but not much. Had only one 63min tape. We drove about 100 miles or so south of Lewisville, TX to a small town called West, TX to a place my boss recommended called The Czech Stop! Its a Czech Bakery/truck stop (this place will be important later) where you can buy local Kolatchies and stuff like that, made fresh… Continue

My R2 is on US Soil!

My DDE changed this morning! It shot forward a week but Im sure that dosnt mean much more than a status change. I got a call from Round Rock saying my car has touched U.S. soil... and is turning around because its scared! Just kidding. But it is in customs, thats for sure. If smartHHO's (on SCOA) experience has taught me anything, it is that customs is not the week that it used to be. But I figure two more weeks and Ill bring my little R2… Continue

Well, my wife and I were approved through our credit union! YEA!!!! We are still going to see if the financing at Smart can get us a better deal, but the car is ours either way. The credit union said that the credit history and time on employment hurt, but they could do 80%. We are putting about 20% down so it worked out great! Keep us in your prayers that everything still goes through!

30 days and counting...

Well, I just got the call today: I am 30 days from picking up my smart. I am so excited its this close. I get the email tomorrow and a call again from my specialist. We should have about $4500 for a down payment, give or take.

Working hasnt been going too well. I got in trouble for not focusing and it turns out I have ADHD. But I hope that in a few weeks, everything will go back to normal. Im back to hourly from salary and now I have to get overtime to make up for… Continue

To solder the end of a fuse holder: cut and bend a small piece of thin brass into a U with a small tab.
Solder wire to the tab, put brass U in fuse holder and reinstall fuse.

Brandon, if you are still coming down this way this month, I would still like to get together to discuss the statewide event. I am trying to put together some ideas of what things would could do for the event and would like to mull them over with ya. I am working on getting the CenTex club back together, we are having our comeback meeting tonight and will let you know how it goes. Message me and let me know when you are heading this way and I can meet you over at the dealership while R2D2 is getting his work done.

NO Brandon we are sadly not getting our CenTex smart act together BUT if there is a statewide event we will publicize it here and I bet we get some of our "members" to attend. Keep me posted.

Me man Brandon: People who graduate from the Univ. of Notre Dame refer to themselves as "Irish", from their fight song, "We are the Fighting Irish". So it was just a call of mine to the Smart enthusiats to see if there were any Notre Dame grads among the bunch. Hope you're O.K. Are you coming to the gathering at the Dallas Smart dealers on Saturday, beginning at 9 A.M.? Owners and Dealers, technicians and mechanics, etc. etc. will all be there to enjoy furnished snacks, and mainly just to ask questions and schmooze. I'll be the old fart with no hair a wife with gray hair. Dr. Stephen

Hey Brandon, How is the car doing? Have you done anything exciting to it? I am really in love with my little one, Purple Passion have just over 800 miles on it now. It doesnt' get out of town as you can tell. We use the big car for out of town trips.
Keep the faith, Nancy & Gary
