now people are paying me to look at my smart car!

My husband and I had just pulled into a parking space in Fairhaven, when a gentleman approched and started asking questions, he was very nice and really interested in the car, and asked if he could sit in it, so I got out and let him in my side. He and my husband talked for about 5 minutes and then my husband smiled and said "well that's the 25 cent tour". As the gentleman got out of the car he thanked us and said "that was well worth the 25 cents" and as he turned to leave he handed me a quarter and was gone before I could give it back! LOL!!!

Let's see, I wonder how many quarters I would need to collect to pay for the gas!

I work for a community college and I went outside to find a student posing with my Smart while his companion took several photos of him with the car. I am totally enjoying the reactions of people who see the car.

I like the guest book idea. Kind of like when you stay in a condo on vacation and the owners have a guest book. That's next on my list to add to the car.

Yesterday I was approaching my car in the parking lot, and found two other people checking out the car. I unlocked it with the remote and had a good laugh when they jumped away! They both ended up with the $.25 tour, too. I have had so many people sit in the car to check it out...I really should have a guest book in the glove compartment.

Loved it! I hope that people ask me about my smart when I get it.
Enjoy you car.
