Before my Smart Car was ever delivered, I had to promise the Elmhurst Memorial Day Parade Chairman that I would indeed drive my new car in his annual parade. Fortunately, my car arrived two weeks prior to the parade. Better yet, my Smart Car was in the third position in the parade...only behind the U.S. Color Guard and the Elmhurst Fire Chief. It was quite an honor, that's for sure. Since I was able to secure the SMARTT license plate, that caught the attention of the parade viewers as well. Let's hope this car becomes as popular in the U.S. as in Europe. I would definitely get a kick out of seeing these adorable cars everywhere!!!
