New Arm Rest

Hey everyone. I finally got my new armrest installed last weekend! It is great and matches the black leather seat perfectly. It attached with two bolts and is nice and sturdy. I got it from Smarty Parts. I missed having one and now it is like it was always there.

How are you all doing in the snow? I have let Maxwell rest for the most part and am driving big brother with all wheel drive. I sure miss the warmth and the convertible! Any snow stories out there?

Happy New Year… Continue

Traffic Stopper!

Well, this is a first! I was waiting to make a right turn onto a rotary circle and the car coming around the circle began to stare at Maxwell! He wouldn't take his eyes off of us and the next thing I knew, he slammed into the curb and jumped up on the grass! He sat there a few minutes and then drove back off the curb and pulled to the side of the road. I felt so bad that we caused him to have trouble. I finally turned the corner and slowly approached him as he assessed the damage to his Honda.… Continue

My New Plate!

I got my new plate yesterday and got it on quickly. I posted that and also posted a picture taken at Bloomfield smart Center in Michigan. Do those cars belong to any of you? I just loved seeing all of them together! I am over 1500 miles and really love driving my smart. It is just such a joy to jump in and go!

I finally turned 1000!

Well, today was the day and I am now past 1000 miles. I am now past my break-in period, whatever that means. MIsmart is running really well, and loves to get out and fly down the road. I continue to be asked questions all the time and the #1 is, "Where do you plug it in?" They all think it is electric for some reason. #2 "Aren't you afraid to drive on the freeway? Don't the big trucks blow you over?" I can't wait to bump into a fellow smartie and pass along that knowing smile and thumbs up!… Continue

Followed all Through Town!

Well, the salesman told me that owning a smart would be like being a rock star! People would pay attention to me and gather round the smart. He was certainly right about that! I was followed through town and when I got to my destination, the car following me came right up behind me, and the lady driving said, "Hey we need to ask you some questions about your car. I am from the paper and we want to do an article on you and your new car!" The next week a half page article and a wonderful picture… Continue
