Well, today was the day and I am now past 1000 miles. I am now past my break-in period, whatever that means. MIsmart is running really well, and loves to get out and fly down the road. I continue to be asked questions all the time and the #1 is, "Where do you plug it in?" They all think it is electric for some reason. #2 "Aren't you afraid to drive on the freeway? Don't the big trucks blow you over?" I can't wait to bump into a fellow smartie and pass along that knowing smile and thumbs up! Still loving it, but it is hard to keep at home.

Oh, I can't figure out how to get badges on my blog page? How do you do that? Anyone? Barb

Hi Barb,

Just got my 1000 miles on Tuesday, the 17th.

Hardest part of owning a Smart is getting out of the parking lots, doctor's office, the bank and even the infrequent stops at gas stations. Everyone wants to talk about the car.

As to the "aren't you afraid on the freeway?" question...pretty funny, no one asks a Corvette owner if they are "afraid of the freeway". I'm higher, more visible and in a heck of a safer car. Also this car has a long record in Europe and anyone who has driven there knows that a car that folded like tissue paper wouldn't last very long.

It is economical and a lot of fun to drive.

Thanks Myriam! The time will pass quickly and you, too, will be enjoying your smart. Just think, you will be able to get a cruise control on yours! I will have to retro-fit one. See, your wait will be worthwhile! My best to you. Barb
