We picked up our new Rally Red Cabrio this morning. Our wait was twelve days short of one full year. Was it worth the wait? So far, the answer is yes! Best of all it fits (just barely) in our garage with it's three buddies and the John Deere.

Can I track shipment of my car with VIN# ?

I got my ETA and VIN # today. Is there any way to track the shipment from the factory to the dealer on the Internet? Thanks. Frank-TN

Can anyone tell me how "The Chrome Package" and "Fog Light Rings" (sold by the dealer) fasten to the Smart Car? Is it something I can do myself?

What Rial wheel/tire setup do you have? I've got the factory size Rials mounted with winter tires on right now, but am thinking about going to the 6 inch rims all around with summer performance tires and swapping the winter tires onto the stock rims.

Frank, the video was taken by a guy named Vic (NCC1701 on SCOA); brought back a lot of good memories. I'm ready to sign up for this year's run.

Hi Frank.. I'm just an old guy with too much time on my hands also. In 1999 I ordered a yellow 5-speed Mustang GT. Kept it 3 + Years. It only had 8000 miles when I traded for my 2003 F-150. It only saw rain 1 time and that was because I got caught in it. My toys have always been in the garage, waxed and covered. I have a new cover for my smart but never used it yet. The garage is junked. I can only get 2 cars in (holds 3). Most of it is furniture for our youngest daughter who gets married April 25th 2009. After that, my garage will be on the same order as yours. I want to put black/white checkered floor for my smart car to park on and I may paint the rest like you did yours. It looks awsome.
