At the Veteran's Day parade event, it was brought up that we have not done a cruise-in in quite a while. This is true. For those that have never been, it is a lot of fun watching people look at our cars instead of the old hot rods that are there. For those of you that live on the airport side of Commonwealth you can meet at the Walmart parking lot on Dunn Ave. at 4:45. People that live on the Orange Park side of Commonwealth can meet at Burger King on Commonwealth and 295 at 4:30. We will…See More
We have been asked to join forces with the Orlando club to participate in a 4th of July parade in Tavares Fl. We will be leaving Jacksonville from the Smart Center at 10:30 on the 4th of July. We are going to cruise down to Tavares through Gainesville, Ocala, Wildwood etc. If you have never driven in a parade, this is your opportunity. If you have, I'm sure you had fun. Please note that I must have RSVP's no later than the 16th of June. Only those that have RSVP'd by the 16th of June will be…See More
It's that time again. We are up for our monthly meeting. We will meet at the parking lot by the street, at Walmart on 103rd St. and then cruise to a restaurant on 103rd St. We will be leaving between 6:30 and 6:45PM. Those that are new to the club, please forgive me for not disclosing the name of the restaurant. I like the members to cruise together as a club. This meeting is not a "dine and dash". We are going to try to iron out some club business while we are in the restaurant. We've got some…See More
Hello everyone! I told you that things were going to be picking up around here. We will be joining up with two or three other clubs for a cruise on New Smyrna Beach. I will be talking to the Daytona Club to see if we can coordinate a rendezvous with them, and then cruise together to meet the rest of the groups. There is a $5 charge per car to ride on the beach. http://www.meetup.com/smarties/ We will be leaving from the Smart Center in Orange Park…See More
February was a great month with the Anniversary Party going on. We haven't participated in a cruise-in since our last meeting. The weather is getting good and I see more Smarts out and about. With gas prices on the rise, a cruise-in is a perfect venue for us to recruit new owners. So, let's join the First Coast Car Council on March 5th from 5-8PM at their Kmart cruise-in. If you have never been to a cruise-in, you will enjoy showing off your car and looking at some of the nice classic cars that…See More

Here we go everyone! It's the event to kick the year off right. It's the 3rd Anniversary of our beloved Smarts being in the USA. Orlando is having a party and we are going to participate big time! The two day event is going to be a blast! I'm staying at the Ramada Gateway Kissimmee 7470 Hwy. 192 West. If you book it with Travelocity, it's $59 a night. We will be leaving bright and early as the festivities begin at noon on the 19th. So, the convoy will be leaving the Smart Center at 8AM sharp!…See More
Fist of all I would like to say I LOVE what you have done with your car!!! (looks really nice) I have a few questions (if you dont mind me asking:)) where did you get your SMART decal that you have on your cell? and also how did you mount your benz emblem and what size is it? I had one one the back of my old smart and now that I got a new one I like where you have but yours!! Nice to meet you by the way lol

Good to meet you today, It's great that you and Marvin are getting so much fun out of your smarties. I feel that way every day. I'm hoping that with proactive owners like y'all in Jacksonville our smarties will get known in this town.
I'll be in Welaka FL until January 1st. I do need to get back to Jax soon for a couple of days I'll try to time it to join you. I also need to get with Marvin on some Ideas for the clubs. I will be monitoring susai daily again as you guys are active on the site. One of the problems we have is, the club members don't hardly use susai at all, it's a shame since it's a great tool for communication.
I see you asked for membership/friending with the Facebook I created for the private use of the JaxSmarts Under 'Michael Saur' so I approved you. My hope is with the facebook page is to get all current members closer together on a daily/weekly basis and for more socialization than the smart centric susai. I also fear that susai is being run so poorly that smartUSA will close it someday and we will lose everything we post there. (i pray not, but they are a corporation). So my thought is susai for new member recruiting and FB for permanent members.
Welcome to susai, Mike, I'm glad you're here. I have been 'out of pocket' for a while and missed the chance to welcome you to susai and JaxSmarts. As you know our group/club has been dormant and susai itself is not as vibrant as it could and should be, but there is hope now with Marvin and yourself bringing new enthusiasm. Personally my enthusiasm for my spice and the smart fortwo has not waned, but, the apathy of the JaxSmarts, like Marvin said, really bums me out. He says you can't wait to do fun things with the smarties. So don't let up I'm hoping it's contagious!
