Max has his CC! Thanks Area 451, SmartieParts, this forum & Swingline

Posted on September 26, 2008 at 2:56pm 2 Comments

After running around for the approved stanley staples, only to find them not available around here, I finally decided to purchase a package of Swingline 3/8 heavy duty staples at Staples. These work perfectly. The best part is I found them at all the office supply stores in CT I checked. The install went fine. Took a little over an hour. Hooked up the battery and took a little test drive before batting down the hatches and all worked great. Pulled back into the garage and put all back together… Continue

Max's first trip with the Rack and Roll trailer

Posted on August 7, 2008 at 6:46pm 14 Comments

This was the first trip Max has made towing the rack and roll trailer with the two kayaks and two bikes on board. Was very interested in how he would do as to mileage and pulling the extra weight. I have been averaging 43 mpg since his pick up in May. Today's trip was all interstate from Bangor, Maine to outside of Hartford, CT, a total of 356 miles.

Hi DowneasTTer!

My name is natty and I see you're from Maine (one of my favorite weekend destinations) :)

anyways, I've been trying to find more participants from the New England area to take my Smart Car owner survey. This is for a marketing strategy plan that I have to do for one of my classes at Fordham University. It'll only take a few minutes and my group and I would really love to hear from you. :)

Just copy and paste this link onto your browser.

Thanks so much!

Hello... I've heard from friends that someone was down on E Bucksport Rd. I'm down near South Orrington on the Betts rd. We're planning on using ours as much as possible depending on the weather. So far its going well. We also have a Honda CRV that is great in the snow. Catch you around town I'm sure....

Bruce, what time is everyone meeting at Dysarts? Eric may have asked you. We might be able to meet everyone there but can't do the tour.

Hi and thanks for the response...
I live in Brewer, Maine and I travel the entire USA for work.
currently I am in New Mexico doing research for The Government.
I only occasionally am in Brewer, I'll be home for a week or 2 just before the Christmas Holidays.

Wow that is so cool that you can carry the trailer! People must really smile seeing that. I also noticed you choose the red interior, I have the white car with red inside and not many have seen that combination yet around here. Nice photos, Sandi

Where are you in Maine? I grew up in York Beach and Monmouth.

Yes, I am Joe's daughter. I am actually staying with my mom for a while in Winterport. I just got my Smart 3 weeks ago this Sunday, I ordered it last October after debating a few months if I should and glad I did. So far it has been fun. I got the passion, with the red (which is more orange) interior (I wish they had red leather). And of course got the security system, fog lights, power steering.
I am sure my father would have gotten a kick out of it, and I bet he would have fitted in it also.
