Hey, if you get some free time we are trying to get as many Iowans to place a marker on our Iowa Smarties map. Just type in your address at the top and If you put your e-mail address in the message box it will show on the map. This will help Jefferios to get a hold of us if there is another Iowa get together in the future.
I think we all missed the outing on Aug. 6th. (I was in surgery all day, couldn't go!) Have you found out when yours will arrive yet? (Ya know, I agree with Jim's wife, the bumblebee is not the most attractive color scheme for everyday, it's great on game day, but let's face it... we get enough looks and laughs without that added punch!)LOL The blue and black sounds really pretty, haven't seen one like that yet.
I went over to Omaha this weekend for another test drive(My first one was in the Smart Road Show in Overland Park, KS last fall). I wanted to recapture the feel and the enthusiasm I had from the first time I saw these cars. I wasn't able to drive one due to the fact that I got called back to work on short notice, but I was able to go to the dealership(It's easy to get to!) sit in the cockpit, open the doors and hatches, and pick up a brochure. I plan on ordering a black/black passion with black leather seats and most of the options. But I put myself on their Orphan list for every color but the Hawkeye bumblebee(I could live with it but my wife hates them!)
Gus, some of the other Iowa drivers are getting together to drive in the Iowa State Fair parade on Aug. 6th. Will you be along with us? (Look under "any other IA smarties" thread of the SCOA web page.) Let us know if you'd like to join us!
