I got rear ended in my Smart on the freeway on Friday. Traffic was slowing down; I took my foot off the gas pedal, looked in the rear view mirror and saw the Toyota Sienna also slowed down behind me. All of a sudden the van behind me accelerated and hit me at 40 - 50 mph; driver behind me must have stepped on the wrong pedal. I am 38 weeks pregnant, and thanks to the safety features in the car, I was okay. I walked out of the car okay, just bruised lip, and minor neck pains. I love this… Continue

On Black Friday I was at the mall looking for parking spot, I drove past 2 police officers waiting for a tow truck to tow a SUV that was parked illegally. Both officers were looking at my car, after I parked my car I walk past the officers. Out of curiosity, one of the police officer asked me "How fast have you driven in that car?". I gave him a funny expression, thinking how I can answer that "question". Then he realized why I gave him that look, them both of them laughed. He ensure me it just… Continue

The President of our company drives a Bentley, he occasionally comes in the office. Today after work as I walked over to my car, he asked if I can pull over my Smart so he can check it out. He sat in there and made some nice comments about my car, he was joking with the VP, he considering downsizing. Everyone love the Smart cars!!!

I was at a soccer game on Sunday. In the parking lot to my left was empty parking spaces, to my right was a SUV, sidewalk in the front. After the game I was about to leave, there was another car blocking me perpendicularly, the driver was talking to the guy loading up his SUV next to me. There was about 3 feet of space to the front of my Smart, 2 feet in the back to the car that was blocking me. Since there was room, I started backing up about another foot or so. Then I heard the other guys in… Continue

I was at an AYSO meeting, parking was really tough...guess what, I found parking right in front of the entrance on street. It was a really tight spot in between 2 cars (normally I wouldn't even consider this a parking spot), I managed to fit my Smart into that spot. After the meeting was over, there was another group of parents waiting to park. As I pull out of the spot, I saw a Matrix eyeing my spot. After I left, the Matrix driver drove up parallel to the empty spot to see if his car will… Continue

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.

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.
