On Friday at the gas station, a man approached me asking about my Smart. He told me his daughter loves this car, I thanked his compliment. He came back 2 minutes later with his daughter (she looks about 16), asking me if I can take her for a ride. I agreed, the dad asked if he can get in the car as well. I told him this a 2 seater, and I will only take 1 person. Anyways I took his daughter for a stroll around the parking lot, and she thanked me.

looking for more of smart owners in Colorado (especially the greater Denver area) for drives, meets, or anything else fun revolving around our smarts. Check out our group of now 6 (six!) members and sign up. My rough (unscientific) estimates tell me there should be about 400-500 owners you got their cars from the Denver smartcenter. I know the smarts are small and easy to hide, but don't be shy ... tobias (proud owner of "Lewis H" since July 26th 2008)

By the way, I think the woman at the dealership was a little disturbed, too, as she just read my blog where I indicated I'm a little disturbed. . .

Knock me over with a feather!!! The dealer JUST called me to tell me my car is actually here. Wow. Now, that's at least a week earlier than they told me earlier. Wooohoo!
Now I can join the groups of owners and give advice to newbies. Actually, I'll wait until I've had the car for a little while. After I finish giving rides to everyone I work with. . .
So I pick it up tomorrow afternoon. I'm absolutely blown away.
So everyone, thanks… Continue

Earlier the dealer told me my car would probably be delivered mid-August, and the end of my DDE is late Sep - early Oct.

OK, I'm getting a little disturbed.
Just called the dealer and was told, "oh, the deliveries are being made toward the end of the DDE". That means I have to wait until the end of September, or early Oct, if what she said is accurate. Earlier I was told the car would most likely be here around mid-September.
Then I read someone's blog about delivery being "at the dealer's discretion":
This is disturbing. So now I'm at the dealer's mercy? And he could sell the… Continue

So, on Friday evening I am sitting in the chair getting a haircut when my cell rings, the above mentioned sense of calm sets in as I answer (somehow quite sure what I would hear).
'This is Richard...'
"Hi, Richard, this is Lauren from Smart Center Beverly Hills!"
"Your smart car has is here, and will be ready for pick up any time after August 5th! Would you like to make an appointment?"
After 12 months and 3 weeks, the wait… Continue

Here are photos of the panel swap that we (Mr. Incredibler & monica) did. It took just over five hours. First time, no experience and didn't rush it, either.

I'm a newbie at the forum discussions and blogs. Can someone please provide help on how to post comments back to responses to a discussion group that I started and also how to add comments to blogs, etc.
Thanks for any assistance.

Just about 1 1/2 weeks left. I hope it comes when the dealer said it would.
And wouldn't you know, I absolutely have to be at work that week. Ahh, fate. I was going to take a couple of days off and drive around. Haha! Well, I'll have plenty of time to enjoy it anyway.
Left a note for poor old LeLapinBlanc. He needs to calm down. Yes, he has put a damper on our good attitudes but maybe we can get over it.
For all of you who commented on my previous blogs, I've decided… Continue

I've ran across lots of members thus far who say, "I ride too!"
So it made sense for there to be a group for bikers here.
Just the other day I was riding down the road in my smart. And a guy was heading the other direction on his motorcycle. He gave me the motorcycle… Continue

I just bought a new classical music cd, and was listening to it on my way home. I stopped at a red light, and all of a sudden I heart "Nice Smart Car". For a second I thought that came from the cd, but it couldn't be, then I thought maybe I was crazy. Then I started looking around, a guy from the ambulance behind me was waving at me. He said "Nice Smart Car" over the ambulance broadcast, I thought that was so FUNNY.
