I luv this site! It's awesome to read other people that have the same experiences! I've never had a car that has ever attracted the kind of attention that this car gets. It's a double edge sword but never dull.
From reading other people’s blogs, I've realized that we were very lucky in getting the Smart as quickly as we did. We literally took a look at them on a Sunday, and by the following Saturday, we owned one! We were smart enough to be on the orphaned list. From the sounds of it, I'm guessing that the Atlanta location is one of the few dealerships that have that. We still have a reservation for a solid black cabrio, just in case we decide we want a 2nd one down the line.
I get a real kick out of seeing other Smarts on the road, I don't think I've met another owner that hasn't either honked or waved back.
One of my favorite things to do is to park Smarty with the top down in front of a Starbucks, go inside and get a cup of java, and sit outside and watch people's reaction to it. I luv how people walk around it, look inside, take pictures... one even went as far as to pull the door handle... that's where I draw the line and click the panic button on the key! hahaha!
