No I didn't paint them -- it came that way. It's a limited edition "highstyle" -- 130 in Canada. The colour is metallic chocolate brown, so I chose the CHOCULA for the vanity plate. Here's a link describing the highstyle edition:
It's a custom airbrushed paint job so it's the only one like it in the world. Came with the car. One of the paint guys at the dealer does motorcycles on the side and the manager turned him loose on four orphans. The other flame job is on a black one that a fireman bought. There was another white smart where the front end was charred so it looked like it had just gone through re-entry.
There ought to be Mr. blue cartoons showing up here soon! Time's a wastin!
I found a thumbnail of a pic on the SCOA website, member's name is rfernatt. I wasn't able to import it for you here. I belive you said you wanted a Santa's Hat for your smart, so I was trying to share a fabulous one. It also has christmas light decals under the windows all the way around. I believe he has red panels on it now.
See you in the funny papers.
The meeting is an event in the event sections for the Out-smart-ing the Dragon event the last weekend in September. I joined the group because my daughter lives in the Va Bch area and I visit there frequently from Charlotte, NC. I'd love to join the Va Smart group events and get to see my daughter at the same time. Come join us the last weekend in Sept in the NC mountains.
Thanks for the nice comments about my commercial. I sure wish it would go nationwide! :-)
I watched your car pictures and saw the blue bumper sticker...I see that you really are SMART!! (I love your political views)
My Smart was reserved on July 2007 and picked up on March 2008. It does not have AC or a radio. I was going for a low monthly price. I have a radio that another Smart owner took out of their car to put in a new one. I only paid for shipping and handling. I also belong to Smart Car of America. http://www.smartcarofamerica.com
