Wow, this was a bunch of fun. First because it was the first long trip I had done with my smart car named "Scoots", and it gave me a chance to find out what the MPG on the highway would be... (43MPG). Jeff did an excellent job setting up the Rally and got the word out. I believe we had 16 Smart Cars in all travelling the roads from Ames to Ankeney and finally ending up in Des Moines. If you would like to see some of the pictures just follow the links below...

Your rally at Des Moines sounded great. I have a new Smart, yellow convertible. I live in South Dakota and there are only two Smarts so far in my town. The reaction of people as I drive it is amazing.... I also have a cabin in Spearfish SD, the US headquarters of every car rally you can imagine. First the Sturgis bike rally, the corvette rally, even a tractor rally. The Black Hills are amazing and the ride is awesome. I think that a Smart Rally in the Black Hills would be incrediable.
I used to be in the Corvette Club of Sioux Falls, that rally started with ten cars and now has over 700 every year! It is always the third weekend of July.
Still do not know a lot about my car yet since I have had it only a week.
Picked it up in Omaha right when they were closing. Drove it two hundred miles home in forty mile an hour winds. Swayed around a lot. But I made it home at midnight. How's that for a first ride!!!!!!
The dealership went through a few things, told me the owners manual is in the back velcro pouch. Just looked yesterday and it is missing. Cannot figure how to get the back hatch open. I keep pushing on the little latch above the license plate to no avail..... Help
