Sportacus : Official color "It's Green" and the only one in the U.S. (as far as we know)

These are pics the dealer took just moments before I drove away! I told you I rolled outta bed to swoop in and get him.

CenTex Poker Run

The CenTex smart Car Club sponsored a Poker (charity) Run followed by an Owner Clinic put on by Round Rock smart. Special thanks for the coordinators of the Poker Run, Martha and Sandy.

100% of the entrance fee went to the Moore-Weis school, our charity.

Chance Meeting

Posted on December 23, 2008 at 8:25pm 3 Comments

We had a chance meeting with another smart for lunch at Jaime's in Austin, Texas (8th and Red River).





They were really friendly, of course, and I encouraged them to attend our next CenTex smart Club activity, a poker run.



I've been driving with my sunscreen pulled back this week for the first time and I love it. It's just been so hot here in Texas and the sun is so bright that I only wanted to block out the sun. Now with the temps in the 30's and the sun… Continue

When is our next meeting? I have posted everywhere and seem to not get any replies to any of them. Is this still a club, or has the towel been thrown in?

Howdy fellow Texan, I am fascinated by this chameleon color and keep coming back to look at the pictures. I'm going to have to make one of the rallies soon (I'm in Arlington, known by Dallasites as "east Fort Worth", said with a sneer). Need to see this paint job in person, meet everybody, and it'd only be a short road trip. Smartacus - brilliant.

I feel like this is a silly question, but how does one post photos in a blog? I'm having difficulties. Thanks!

I made that hitch to pull the trailer I designed and built for my smart, but when it was not towing the trailer the "hitch" looked strange back there so the "prop" was a natural. NOW here is the strange part I actually have been asked, 1. can it go in water, and 2. is it air powered. GO FIGURE.....

I see you are also on SCOA. What do you think about it? Did you get any SCOA members at your meet?

Your rally looks like it was fun. I always enjoy seeing smarts in a row!
