"How about if we start the rumor that the 453 will be introduced to the world at the Minnesota dealer?  Then if neither happen, no one will be surprised."

"This is great!  I hope that it is true.  Rochester will be a good site. Isn't it odd that it is published in a newspaper before any of the 'insiders' are informed?"

"The newspaper article is probably correct if you consider cars that are widely available in America.  There are many (most) places that smarts are not available.  FIAT dealers are much more widely distributed around the country. "

Hey Jim,

Have you heard if Feldman Imports will be serving smart cars any time soon?  Really dissapointing that Madison is now the closest dealership.  I test drove the electric version in NM last October, and loved it, but there's no way I would buy it until I could take it somewhere in less than 2 days to get it servived.
