Hey Ron - I just posted a new image in the WV smarties group that we could use as an updated logo and thought you might change it. If it needs to be resampled to a lower resolution so it looks sharp on the site, I can do that as well.
Also, I've been thinking about a 'smart' windshield banner like yours. Where did you get it?
Rob, your photos seem to be local to me ie Ashton Place. I think you were my first West Virginia sighting, last fall/winter on Jefferson Road. I live in Nitro and am wondering where you got your smart inspected. I'm thinking Smith Mercedes on Corridor G??? I picked up mine on Saturday the 11th in Columbus. What a hoot!
HI Ron.. The base price for the coupe is 17,990.00. It comes standard black with black cell or you can order Silver with Silver Cell for $400.00.. I got Silver/Silver, Fog lights - $110.00, Anti-Theft Alarm - $160.00, and Smart premium sound sys 2 tweeters, 2midrange and subwoofer - $350.00... I think desitination is $675.00 plus Tax & Lic. Basically its $4000.00 more than a regular Passion but already has Leather, Gages, Mats, Bigger wheels & Tires, Special exhaust, ground effects all around, Brabus badging on gas cap, floor mats and i think other places. Different suspension. Same motor and gas mileage.
Hi Ron. i sure hope it's sooner. I did get an e-mail from smart tonight saying that IF you are a reservation holder that has NOT configured, you can request your car to be a smart Barbus. They are sending more info on it Thursday. I've seen it online in Germany and other places. At 1st smart wasn't going to make a USA version. Its like a sports edition of the smart fortwo. It will be available Feb 1 2009 here in the USA. Today I drove a smart at the dealer in Louisville. It was a PURE without Power Steering. I just wanted to see what it was like without it.
Hey Ron.. Awsome pics of your smart. How did you do in the car show? I've been in many many car shows and thats something I plan on doing with my smart. They are so unique and cute, they have to draw a croud. Was that in Charleston?
hi Ron.. Since I didn't get the #, I googled your name in St. Albans. Only 1 RON McNABB came up. The address was 2252 Adams Avenue but no phone #. I took a chance that it was you and drove there. It was a white house on Adams by the RR Track. I knocked on the door but no one was there. It had a mail-box on the wall by the door with a clothespin on it. Was that your house or did I goto the wrong address?
Love to be at the rally. Unfortunately I will have been on the road the previous 5 weekends; stuff needs to get done around the homefront. I'll fly the colors in Morgantown; I'm the silver on silver. There's two of us, haven't met my twin yet.
my car will be done on Saturday. Thank god. I just got back from the place that is fixing it and it looks great. They are giving ita $3,000 cleaning and are going to send it to Smart to be checked. Can't wait to finally drive it to the biggest car show on the East Coast comming up this Sunday
Ron. Your smart is awsome looking. The GPS/Radio looks great, not to mention the stripes. I'll be going to Charleston WV in a couple of weeks. That's where I'm origanally from and have family there to visit. Moms about to turn 89 yrs young.. lol
