I got my new plate yesterday and got it on quickly. I posted that and also posted a picture taken at Bloomfield smart Center in Michigan. Do those cars belong to any of you? I just loved seeing all of them together! I am over 1500 miles and really love driving my smart. It is just such a joy to jump in and go!
People are getting used to seeing me now and the questions are becoming a little less. But I still get asked what it is and how many miles per gallon does it get? Luckily, I do love talking about it. Barb

Hi Linda! I began looking at smarts several years ago and as soon as I heard about the reservation process I jumped in and sent my 99 dollars. So I put in my time from March 07 until May 08 when it finally made it home. I do love the car and it really makes driving fun. I have read some articles about how bumpy the ride is and I suppose it is, but it steers well and is just simply fun to drive. I got the cabrio and love having a convertible -- American made were just too expensive! I added everything I could and am happy I did so. I do miss onstar, and don't have XM radio yet, but I will add that. You have to be patient and while you wait you can be making payments and use those for your down payment! It will help in the end. Many have had good luck with the orphans that are out there. Have you been to smart center Bloomfield yet? It might be worth a trip up there. I know it seems like you will wait forever, but it will pass quickly. I hope I have helped. Thanks for writing. Barb in Tekonsha (off I 69 by Marshall.

Hi Barb, I'm SO flippin' jealous I could croak! I've only been a reservation holder for approx 1 month. Do you have the patience (and time) to tell me about your model and experience with the whole process? Have you heard of any legitimate way of speeding up the process?
