Driving with a friend the other day I saw a Smartie go buy and as it did I saw the coolest novelty item on the back was a wind up key that actually turned. My friends started screaming she wanted to catch up and ask where they got it so I could get one for my Smartie but we never did get past grandma in front of us.

After that we started talking about cool little things to put on Smarties one good one was a spare tire on the back (like SUV's have) but instead of a tire put a Tonka tire on it. I personally want a second horn. I want to keep my cute little friendly horn but I want one I can use when someone cuts me off that sounds like a semi horn. I would get a lot of use out of that.

I still hope to see those people again so I can ask where they got it I would love that.

The one I saw was different than the ones on windupkey.com it was mounted on a small box on the back of the car and looks a little smaller.

I've been to windupkey.com, and they can only put it on one side of the rear licence plate. Where was they key on the one you saw? I've seen 'em before on other cars and thought they were very cute, but have yet to see one on a smart. Actually, I've only seen 2 other smarts on the road (not counting our rallies) since I took possession in July!

I put one of these in (replaced the stock horn). It was a little tricky without taking the front apron off the car, but so worth it:

For the horn, try a motorcycle shop. My brother in law has one on his cycle and yes, it does sound like a simi
