For giving up so much space & dignity, one would expect that thing to get 70 MPG, not 35.

HOT [email protected], this IS a good day!!

As a fitting epitaph, I submit this quote from another article on the (so-called) "Smart" cars...

Quote:
Hey, really small cars don't translate well in America. That's not news. Nobody here is willing to cram, especially when there are kids, kayaks, and preassembled roof trusses to haul. And who wants to be shaking hands with St. Peter while they floss your remains out of the grille of a Hummer?

Nope, give us something that lets us see over the next car, perhaps into the next ZIP Code if possible. Small cars are for the poor and the soon-to-be-squashed. The Smart looks as if somebody bolted an engine and four wheels onto a Lincoln Navigator's glove box!

'16 Phantom Black SS (The awesome DD) - ~ 11k miles at the moment, auto, sunroof, full-size spare. Just a couple of mild cosmetic mods so far.
'89 Trans Am GTA (The NEVER-ending swap project!) - Forged bottom-end 6.2L, built T56, Ford 9", Baer brakes, etc... Eventually hope to run road-course, open-road & standing mile events with it - if I can ever get it completed...
