Have you ever heard of “yarn-bombing?” It’s is a type of graffiti or street art that uses colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fiber rather than paint or chalk.

Artist, Donna Rutledge-Okoro, took her yarn-bombing talents and decided to cover a smart from bumper to bumper.  The decorated fortwo was featured at the Birmingham Museum of Art.  Check out these photos of the “wrapped” smart.…

A 92-mile day in the electric drive!

I wrote this back in September 2011 when I was just past 5000 miles.

___________________________________________

I've got about 5200 miles on mine right now.  My longest drive was back in June, when I lived in DC.  I drove about 92 miles total, with maybe 3/4 of that drive being at about 55 mph on the DC Beltway.  I was really afraid of not making it home, so I tried to plug-in mid-day.  I was able to plug in for about 2-3 hours, but had to use an extension cord and a 120V…

The first 1000 miles in my smart electric drive

I posted this on the Team 250 site over a year ago.  For those of you interested in the 3rd Generation smart electric drive, it does look like they took a lot of our initial feedback to heart.  We'll see what the price tag looks like (hopefully very soon).

 

January has never been my favorite month... I hate the cold weather... but this year (2011) 27 January was special.  Let me back up a bit...

 

24 December 2010, I got a phone call from my smart dealer. …
