  1. So that would make it a hybrid....?
  2. Thanks to everyone who came out to Plunkett's Thursday - great meet up and a mix of old and new faces and cars, even two electric drives! We ended up with three cars from Ohio - Barry and Linda, John and Robin and Fred (late arrivals), plus Dale and Gay from Kansas. Couldn't have asked for better weather and hospitality. It's always a good time visiting Ontario for this August show.
  3. Who's going to buy our beer!
  4. Heading for the Great White North tomorrow with another US smart. See you at Plunkett's around 5 pm.
  5. So far the forecast is looking pretty good for Thursday.
  6. Good idea. Can't remember the restaurant we met at last year but it was OK.
  7. All I'll say is we don't allow political topics (and a few others) on SCoA because the "discussions" inevitably go downhill fast, creating a lot of ill will. Not good for the "tone" of the site and offensive to most of the users. So we don't do it. Plenty of places on the Internet to air whatever opinions people have on a whole slew of topics.
  8. It has been discussed previously on SCoA: https://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/f353/key-will-not-turn-ignition-49882/?highlight=key+won't+turn https://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/f353/key-will-not-turn-ignition-100682/?highlight=key+won't+turn https://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/f4/key-wouldn-t-turn-ignition-switch-115122/?highlight=key+won't+turn
  9. Drive it the same way you would any rear wheel drive car in the snow. Actual winter tires certainly help. Depending on the model you have, traction control may not be helpful if you have to rock the car....

  11. Don't own a cdi but that is some excellent work. Thanks for the tutorial.
  12. Should be a couple more cars from the lower 48.

  14. Will have to miss this one as I'm enjoying New Orleans for a few days....
