OH LooK! We've found the oldest smart and it is here in the U.S.

By her own admission Revbacbecca has been a smart owner since 1975.
Isn't there a huge prize for that discovery. Do I win the prize or does she? Does any body know the answer to that one? I'm dying to know! Anyone?

I guess we don't have to worry about our dear little one going out of style!

Perhaps she thought her Casalini Sulky was a Smart car...

When you close in the back of the truck, well there's your smart. I recently saw a web site in the U K that some one recently posted, maybe on scoa if not here, that was great. They loaded an under the counterr clothes dryer in the back and closed her up glass and all. My passenger seat stays all the way back all the time and the cabrio doesn't open up as massively as the coupes do because of that smashing roll bar!.

Anybody got pics of the 1996 prototype of the smart.

Well, Revbacbecca, I guess I don't win the prize and you know the rest: What you own,
isn't so smart.
So how about a can of spam. A little pineapple, yams and some brown sugar and it can be edible. Other than that, It's still spam.

If the truck bed was just a bit longer I might have to have one of those too. Maybe it could have an extendable bed.

As everyone has pointed out, a 1975 owner is certainly bogus, but I think the first real MB concept vehicle that directly relates to the smart was the 1981 NAFA:

"The NAFA was a short distance concept vehicle aimed at the market for congested streets, where parking spaces are at a premium. ... The comparatively high seating position, the low waistline and large glazed surfaces made for an optimal all-round view. ... The NAFA study did not fall into oblivion. The insights it furnished entered into the design of the A-Class of Mercedes-Benz, the prototype of which arrived in 1996. And in the Smart city coupe, introduced in 1997, the concept of the compact urban car celebrated its coming of age and has since been manufactured in large numbers."

dennyrex.... even if you could somehow trace the concept back to 1972 as you say.... Last time i checked, you can't be an "owner" of something that was still just a concept for the next 20 some odd years.
