Does your Smart have it's own Twitter Account?

I decided that my Smart Car needed a Twitter Account. You can check it out and follow him at: I think of my Smart kinda like Herbie you know. The car has a mind of its own, and chases after those girly cars. Can't quite get him undercontrol. Anyways, it's a fun way to promote the car online.

Hi Sailor J,

I don't have a smart car but we did vehicle wraps for tons of smart cars near Cocoa Beach.  You probably saw some of the Tropical smarties we did like the one in front of Ron Jon's in Cocoa Beach.  What a fun car to design for!  Let me know if you get a group together, I'd love to get more pics of smarties at the beach.  Kim Brainard
