My Favorite UK interactive video. Gotta Luv It!


http://www.truthaboutsmart.co.uk/ is the link.
This is the neatest interactive video website I've seen for the smart fortwo. I was dumbfounded by what they put in the back of the car! They put in a clothes dryer! What do you think? You have to see it to believe it!
What's the largest thing you've put in the back of your smart?

Could it be that a reviewer actually "gets it"?

I found this article noted in the forums of Smart Car of America. The article is in a magazine named Winding Road. The interface to the magazine isn't very easy to work but when you go to the website in the upper middle section named Featured there is an article called "HONDA FIT VS. SMART FORTWO" click on that to go to the article. When ready to turn the page use the blue arrows at the very top of the page to navigate. If you see an advertisement just click the arrow again to go to the… Continue

Her name is Magnolia

Magnolia. It evokes memories of a southern summer day. Sitting in a shady spot outside, sipping sweet tea and the smell of magnolias in the air. Their beauty evoking visions of elegance and southern charm. So after much thought and personal debate, I decided to forgo the cutesy names. After driving her a few weeks the name Magnolia just fit her perfectly. Much like she picked her own name.

What To Expect ...

So the car I configured is coming in soon. And I'm trying to rack my brain about key points I should mention. I figure my post way back when about "Smart Car Dumb Questions" would be a good start. I'm starting this blog post to get a list for him based on my experiences. {And others experiences if anyone cares to chime in.} He's in a small town in the middle of Louisiana and there's only one other one that he knows of near him. So he'll still get lots of attention.



I'm in Dallas/Fort… Continue

I Can't Believe It .... {another mpg post}

Ever been one of those folks on a forum hearing how folks are getting great mpg but for the life of you .... you can't manage to get near the top folks? I'm usually the one scratching my head and beating the keyboard screaming and muttering about my mpg in comparison.



I have to admit there have been a few times I worried about Belle.



I have tracked each and every single solitary fillup. Every drop. Every penny. I keep an Excel file on my computer. It's got the formula's in… Continue

Luv My Orphan

So back in April {on the 20th to be exact} I adopted my Blue Belle. Belle has been a lil gem. I like to think of her as my lil sapphire. ~soft smiles~



Last month we got a call from our local dealership ... the 30 day call. ~stiffeled giggles~ Already they called to move the delivery date. For those who don't know .... The 30 day window of pick up starts from the call NOT from delivery at the dealership.



So I have the orphan. Part of me… Continue

Euro ForTwo Brake Bulbs

Continuing my hunt for American bulb numbers for the Euro ForTwos that were imported in 2005, I discovered that brake lights are bulb 2057. More as I learn it :)

Euro ForTwo Bulbs

I have not found much information as far as American bulbs for the Euro Smart ForTwo Passions (450 models) so here are the ones I know of:

+ 2357A or 2057A (either works) - front and rear turn indicators
+ 7506 - driver's side rear fog light
+ 509T - twist lock bulb for the console interior light and button

I will add to this list as I learn more. :)

UPDATE: 5 Sept. 2008
These bulbs should also work on Euro Smart ForTwo Pures.

Describe The smart In One Word

Intriguing.



Some seem to love it. Some seem to dislike it. Some question its safety. But most everyone seems to find the smart intriguing.



Maybe it’s the novelty of being new on the roads here in the US. Maybe it’s because the smart is so small. Or maybe it’s just because the smart is so different from anything else here in the US. Maybe it’s the design and how when looking at the smart from the front she just seems to smile at everyone.



On the… Continue

smart car. Dumb Questions. Part 2.

Part 1 here.





Aren’t you scared to ride in that thing?

Only if you were driving.



I wouldn’t be caught dead in one of those!

Good. I’m running out of room for the bodies.



How much does it cost?

I explain the base price, mid model {point to mine} price and convertible price.

But how much does YOURS… Continue

Prius encounter

So today I'm out doing errands. :D

I was at the liquor store getting ready to leave when a Prius parks beside me. I finish loading the rear and they get out to talk to me and look at the smart. Then they tell me how the Prius isn't getting the mileage they expected. Turns out they do a lot of highway driving. Supposedly you get better mileage with slower speeds when the battery is powering the car. I have to admit. I was feeling a bit proud of my lil smart when Prius owners were impressed… Continue

Windshield Information

Like many others here, I get a lot of questions about my lil smart fortwo. I've had people follow me into stores and even wait for me to come back out. Early on I had heard about how others left slips of paper with information on them in a plastic bag on their windshields. I did not want to deal with slips of paper that would need to periodically need to be replaced. So I printed off one sheet, put it in a clear protective sleeve and put it in the windshield. Today I updated and edited my own… Continue

smart car. Dumb Questions.

At the gas station putting fuel in my lil smart someone asks,

Is that one of them electric cars?

Yep. I often enjoy putting gasoline in my electric car.

The first time they realized what they'd said. The second person then went on to ask,

Where is the battery?

I left it home today. That's why I have to put gas in it.



As many of us have heard,

What if you get hit by a truck?

I've been riding a Harley for years. No one has ever… Continue
