"It would have been less costly if smart had engineered the car for U.S. sales from the start.  That they didn't is a sign the car has never been slated for sale here, but I think that decision can be reversed if enough people start making…"

Hi Skippy! 

We would love to attend, and we'd be happy to spread the word to our owner's about the event.  Unfortunately we don't have any goodies to hand out at the moment (we're in between suppliers with updating our smart "gear" line up) but if there is anything else we can do we will be happy to help!  Just say the word!

Thank You for liking the page here on smartusainsider as well as the one on facebook. I too have seen the blue/black one parked by the parkway. My family is very good friends with the reddish/orange smart at St. Elizabeth. My dad works with him. I've seen the yellow one and the silver/black one a few times but they are always going in the other direction. When I do see them I'm going to put a smart car utica group flyer under there windshield wipers. Hopefully I'll see them driving around soon. TJ

Hi. My name is TJ. I noticed that you live in Utica. I would like to start a smart car utica group. I made a facebok page. The link is facebook.com/smartcaruticagroup I drive a red/black smart car. I have been wanting to start a group for a while but whenever I see another smart in clinton, new hartford, or utica, they are always driving in the other direction. If you want to help me that would be great. If not thats ok too. Also if you didn't know already, the smart party in latham this year is June 8.
