Got an orphan - Rally Red -dealership great

On Feb. 10th picked up an 2009 orphan at the Jackson, MS dealership. This smart was like the one I had originally ordered,red/w/silver, it has the comfort package. The dealership was great to work with, Mike B. took a great deal of time answering questions and showing off the smart. They have three more orphans if anyone in the area is wanting a car now.
The ride back to Lousiana was a little rough, had winds, and rain, the smart felt like it was floating, by the time I had driven it about 50 miles or so, I got the feel of the vehicle. A blast to drive. Lots of smiles and waves on the interstate. First tank of gas - 43 MPG. WOW!!!

I did the same thing, got the orphan before mine was delivered, only mine is a cabrio -- red/silver with the comfort package and a few other goodies.

Hi Judi, I was one of the reservations holders selected to receive the Brabus in November, so I switched my reservation , no fixed date when that is to arrive. Before I switched to the Brabus the dates were December 2009 -February 2010 , When I saw this smart, I loved the red, named the car Gypsy.

Nice that you got what you wanted early. When was the one you ordered due to arrive?
