After a bit of orphan list drama last night (first they had the car, and then they didn't), I got another call this morning saying that they did indeed have a car available for me! I'll be stopping by the Seattle Smart Center on my home tonight to take care of all the paper work and all that good stuff and I AM EXCITED!

The orphan isn't exactly what I had planned on getting, but I'm willing to make a few sacrifices for the ability to enjoy a Smart car 6 months earlier than estimated.

Well now that I've had a few days with my orphan (contemplating the name "Kenji"), I have to say, I really really love it!

I reserved on June 25, 2007 and configured on January 28, 2008. Two weeks ago my DDE stated June 27 - Sept 25, 2008, but I was able to obtain an orphan that is EXACTLY what I ordered, including color and all options! Dealer will take delivery of my ordered vehicle, probably some time in August. But I LOVE my Li'l Bean!!!

Grats I love my Orphan and you will too even if it's not what you thought you wanted.

Wonderful news! Do consider keeping your reservation. Many people who adopt are staying on the res list and some who got their reserved vehicles are signing up for a second reservation.

Most smiles per gallon anywhere! Enjoy.

I acquired an orphan on Friday 6/27 and we are loving ittttttt!!!!!!! It is so much fun and actually the most fun is the infectious laughs of children who giggle as you pass them. Who would have believed that a car would bring this much happiness to so many? As a motorcycle rider that enjoys the comraderie of other cyclists I look forward to this new group of excited travelers maybe a Black Hills Run is in the future for Smarties. Just a thought. See you on the road.

You can always trade in your orphan when your reservation Smart comes in. Or make someone happy and sell it to a friend. Orphans rule!

Good luck, Phill! I bought an orphan a month ago, configured a little differently than I expected, and it has worked out great.
