  1. Yeah, my Mom clipped it from the local paper here in Madison. However, she has already been fully educated by me and Marta about the real smart facts. My aunt was visiting from NC. After her first ride in Marta - she told me she had made up her mind before she came that my smart purchase was a bad idea .... after that first ride and a little dose of factual info - she loved it!
  2. Well, Marta has to go to the smart doctor. If I let her fill to auto shut off we have an overflow and gas running out under the car. This has happened at two different filling stations in two different states. Marathon in Il and BP in WI.It happend the first time and I wouldn't do the auto stop again. Three weeks later (today) with one bar left and 326 miles gone I thought I'd try it again.....Pump in all the way.....past 8, past 8.4, past 8.7 .... I'm trying hard not to grab the pump as hubby said let it go.... stopped at 9.2 and gas began to leak out under car.Not good! Amy
  3. Well, Marta got a "do" today! I asked for the stripe on the door as a silver shadow of the "dent" and my detail guy added a couple "extras" for me. I love it! The photos don't do it justice!
  4. Mike T,I am so jealous!!! I plan on dying in Paris. Hopefully I will be able to live there for a while first! Was going to move there after son graduated college but I went and fell in love and got married again.... now we have married children and grandkids and ageing parents keeping us close to home....but someday......
  5. I just spotted an Ontrario cdi in Madison, WI around noon today. Anyone know a black on silver cabrio cdi named R LITL 1? This is the first time my Marta has seen a cousin from behind! I looked ahead, looked at the hubby and said .... Is that a smart car ahead of us??? The driver was tooling along quite quickly on our local country road and it took a couple stops signs before we could catch up, honk and wave.If you know the driver - tell him he is welcome in our neighborhood anytime. I have a camera in my car but I was so excited I didn't remember it until I was a mile down the road Amy

  11. I stopped by the tint shop near work on Friday about 15 minutes before closing ... I walked in and asked for a window strip tint for my smart car .... The guy (my age - 50's) face lit up and he said "You have a smart car?'' Then he called the three other guys in the shop to come out and look. He tried Marta on for size and was very enthusiastic about her.Before I know it I agreed to let him do the "whole car" with a Wisconsin legal tint. He said I'd have plenty of attention and he didn't want me to get into trouble. The cost is $150 for all the windows and the darker strip at the top of the windshield. He is doing it tomorrow ... am I paying too much?
