So after 18 months the smart fortwo that I reserved and configured finally came in. It came in last week and we picked it up on Friday. It's staying in the family just not in our garage or driveway. The man persons brother took delivery. I drove to Louisiana to pick him up and bring him to the Dallas dealership.
There is NO WAY I could have waited this long. I'm so glad I got my lil orphan Blue Belle when I did. Though I did see a lovely lil white cabriolet orphan on the floor there. No doubt that's been long adopted by now though.
The good news is that the Fort Worth dealership shouldn't be far from opening. Scuttlebutt there had the possible opening being January. So maybe those 18 month waits here in the DFW area and those served by the Dallas dealership will be cut down significantly.
So I made my reservation 20 May 2007. I configured 1 March 2008. Delivered 7 November 2008. And Adopted my lil Blue Belle in April 2008. Is it sad that I'm already thinking about what I want when I order my next smart car?
