No, I am not the organizer. I review the other Smart Car sites and picked up the note that some of the Denver owners were planning this gathering. I passed it on to the Insider group. The plan as I understand it is to meed at the Denver Smart Center at 11am on Sunday (11/8), spend time just talking about Smart things and then to go to a local restaurant for some lunch. I do not believe a drive is planned afterwards, however, with the good weather we are having, a drive would be a great idea. Hope you can attend.
Hey Brian, thanks for saying hi. Dan Hall bought my poptop tonight. Sorry I ddn't hear from you sooner. Jim to my knowledge still has it! He came down to $900 ( on his own ) last email to me. Better give him a buzz or email. I wont' sign off of here yet.... they are great cars! Not good for our new location. We would have kept it, but not in the budget. Talk later Hutch
HI Brian, Haven't seen you since our Bishops Castle trip. Have you done anymore in a search for a trailer? I just left Jim Litton a message and I remember talking with you about it on our last venture. I am in no hurry, but if you know of any place (s) that sell trailers specifically for Smart Cars, let me know. Hutch
Hi Brian & Mary,
Just a note to let you know I added an album with 17 photos taken on the trip to Bishop Castle last Sat. You can view it if you desire. It was a fun trip and I hope others will come up down the road?
Brian, which color would you prefer the powder coating? I did a gloss back on mine because there is absolutely NO chrome on these anywhere. I still need to check the price of steel. With the way the Chinese have been buying it all up the price has gone up almost daily. Keep in touch and I will have the info in a few days, hopefully.
BRIAN, I MADE THE HITCH FOR MYSELF, BUT WITH THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE INTERESTED IN THEM, I MAY CONSIDER SELLING SOME OF THEM. I WOULD HAVE TO PUT A PENCIL TO MY COST AND GET BACK TO YOU. FINISHED LIKE MINE WITH THE POWDER COATING THE IT WOULD BE IN THE $250 RANGE.
KEEP IN TOUCH AND I WILL GET MORE INFO. JIM
Hey Brian, Hutch here in Colorado Springs. Who is the person to contact in the Denver group now that Toes is out? Dan Hall a C. Springs Smart Owner and I want to meet you at Woodmen and I-25 at the Park n Ride on the west side of I-25. just one block west and one block south on Corporate drive. My cell is 719-290-1211 9:30 sound okay? Call if it needs to be different. Hutch
It will be an official COSMOS drive. toes is organizing it as we speak! I'm glad you and Mary will be able to come. We seem to have core group of regulars, and it makes it more fun. This is all very interesting to me. I get to hang out with and get to know people I never would have otherwise, and it sure is a blast! My parents live in Manitou, so I should be able to drop the kids off with them, and be able to tour unencumbered. If we do it the 29th, I may be a bit of a mess. I'm going to a sanctioned "rave" the 28th, but I wouldn't miss our meet for the world!
We could meet at the GOG visitors' center, then take the circuitous route through GOG, and maybe hit a restaurant in Manitou Springs for lunch. The altitude shouldn't be a problem as far the weather goes, and maybe we can get more Southern Colorado smarties to join us. What do you think? It's off-season, so maybe there won't be too much traffic in GOG. It would also be a cool place to take pictures of the cars.
