Hey Ron - I just posted a new image in the WV smarties group that we could use as an updated logo and thought you might change it. If it needs to be resampled to a lower resolution so it looks sharp on the site, I can do that as well.
Also, I've been thinking about a 'smart' windshield banner like yours. Where did you get it?
Rob, your photos seem to be local to me ie Ashton Place. I think you were my first West Virginia sighting, last fall/winter on Jefferson Road. I live in Nitro and am wondering where you got your smart inspected. I'm thinking Smith Mercedes on Corridor G??? I picked up mine on Saturday the 11th in Columbus. What a hoot!
HI Ron.. The base price for the coupe is 17,990.00. It comes standard black with black cell or you can order Silver with Silver Cell for $400.00.. I got Silver/Silver, Fog lights - $110.00, Anti-Theft Alarm - $160.00, and Smart premium sound sys 2 tweeters, 2midrange and subwoofer - $350.00... I think desitination is $675.00 plus Tax & Lic. Basically its $4000.00 more than a regular Passion but already has Leather, Gages, Mats, Bigger wheels & Tires, Special exhaust, ground effects all around, Brabus badging on gas cap, floor mats and i think other places. Different suspension. Same motor and gas mileage.
Hi Ron. i sure hope it's sooner. I did get an e-mail from smart tonight saying that IF you are a reservation holder that has NOT configured, you can request your car to be a smart Barbus. They are sending more info on it Thursday. I've seen it online in Germany and other places. At 1st smart wasn't going to make a USA version. Its like a sports edition of the smart fortwo. It will be available Feb 1 2009 here in the USA. Today I drove a smart at the dealer in Louisville. It was a PURE without Power Steering. I just wanted to see what it was like without it.
Hey Ron.. Awsome pics of your smart. How did you do in the car show? I've been in many many car shows and thats something I plan on doing with my smart. They are so unique and cute, they have to draw a croud. Was that in Charleston?
