  2. I'm very excited, I talked with the Pittsburgh Smart Center (opened 1/18/08) and they informed me that my 08 PURE is in transit and will arrive next week. Delivery may not be for two weeks due to dealership issues. Anyway, I’m very happy that I will be the first one in Pittsburgh with a smart car. Also, I started a website two months ago with hopes of anyone within 50 to 100 miles of Pittsburgh joining in for information, friendship and the love of this beautiful micro car to finally come to the US. Hope you will visit and possibly meet sometime later this year. Website: http://www.PittsburghSmartCarClub.org Tom K of Pittsburgh, PA
  3. Just finished creating a new website and local club for smart car enthusiasts who live within 50 miles or so from downtown Pittsburgh and would like to get together for friendship and to discuss this fantastic micro car coming the first quarter of 2008. It is very possible that our local Mercedes Benz dealership located in the Shadyside/Oakland area (8 miles from downtown Pittsburgh) will be our local dealership. CLUB SMART CAR IS A FANTASTIC, INFORMATIVE FORUM THAT IS A MUST FOR ALL SMART CAR ENTHUSIASTS.My website will take nothing away from Club smart car. The Pittsburgh Smart Car Club is another way to share the enthusiasm for locals. website: www.PittsburghSmartCarClub.org
  4. Just received my "CarConfigurator" email this morning. My last seven digits of my reservation number is: 2511175. I believe that I am the 251st person to receive this email. Because many others have the same last four digits. I am so excited that I started a Pittsburgh website and a Pittsburgh Smart Car Club for smart enthusiasts here in Western Pennsylvania and surrounding areas. Even though we have no US smart cars until the first quarter of 2008, those who are within 50 or so miles of Pittsburgh, PA can get-together to discuss this fantastic vehicle. The website is: www.PittsburghSmartCarClub.org I hope to hear from all of you who are close enough to Pittsburgh to share the enthusiasm. MOST IMPORTANTLY, I have just finished ordering my smart fortwo. Pittsburgh Tom signing off.
  5. Congrats on your passion coupe!
  6. Thank you Mike T, smart 142, Rich Helms & Tardis for the replies. I grew up in Pittsburgh, the Highland Park-Morningside area and currently live just minutes away from downtown Pittsburgh in the Northside area (a few blocks from the H.J. Heinz plant). Sorry I missed you last year (Tardis) when you were in Latrobe. I could have shown you around Pittsburgh. Again, looking forward to the arrival of the smart here in Pittsburgh!
  7. I have done the Honda Fit & Toyota Yaris forums and nothing seems to excite me more that the smart minicar.My wife and I put 10,000 to 15,000 miles on our 2003 Honda GoldWing each year. The only thing stopping us from doubling the mileage is of course the WEATHER.With a smart minicar --- we can get over 40 MPG and still enjoy travelling even in the Winter!Can't wait until the end of 2007 or beginning of 2008 when the smart is available here in the US. Pennsylvania is usually the last to get anything new, so I'm trying to keep up with all of the information that everyone in the Club smart car family is providing.It Will Be A Long Wait!!! But I'm sure a worthwhile wait!!! We waited 2 years on our GoldWing and enjoy it all the time!I'll have to wait patiently!
