Hi all,

I love my smart, my wife made me sell my 380SL (a classic ) before I was allowed to buy the Passion, don't miss it, it had a 85 litre tank, with gas at or above 1$, it's nice to fill up for 15 to 18$.

That's all for now, I'm not much of a poster.

Peter

Congrats on dumping the beast (classic or no) for your new Passion... nice choice!

:thumbup: HiSmarties:

Thanks to Mike T, i just learned of this "New" Forum and I'm Happy to be aboard.

I have a Stream Green Pulse Cab. with Twister Green Interior....was the 3rd Smart delivered in Winnipeg (October 2004).Drove it all Winter(separate Pure Rims and Winter Continentals) and fell in Love with my new Toy.

I am Retired :notworking: so have lots of time to enjoy my Smart.

Jeep Stays parked more often than not ...(Liberty 2002) and am enjoying the Gas savings....($80/week=Jeep vs $15-$18 every 4-5 weeks with Smart....sure seems to have been a wise buy considering where Gas Price is headed ! )

I am working with dealer to start a Smart Club in Manitoba....if enough interest is expressed...Lonestar is being very supportive and will send a brief letter to all Smart owners with my contact info....hope it's a GO !

Anyway....just wanted to say hello and I am including a picture of "Shrek "

Regards to all

It is great to see you here at last! :beerchug:

The stream green owners were in peril of becoming a minority until you saved us :bowdown:

Let us know if you would like a "Winnipeg" or "Manitoba" forum, to help get your club off the ground.

Never fear, guys! We've just ordered our fortwo pulse coup? in stream green with the green interior. As soon as we started seriously looking at getting a smart, we could only really consider getting it in green. It's just such a great colour. We figured the car is already going to draw attention, why not get one that's even more eye-popping?

Hopefully we'll be taking delivery in November. Supposedly our order has gone into the October production queue.

At any rate, a bit about me... i'm a graphic designer by training, now working as Creative Director at a small marketing agency in Toronto. We're moving from our little downtown house to a slightly bigger place out in Oakville in November, so the smart is filling our need for a second vehicle for me to commute to the GO station. We'll also be using it for our weekend runabout.

Our first car is a 2000 VW Golf (just a regular ol' gasoline-powered one... the TDI was hard to justify when we bought it because gas was still in the 35?/litre range... boy do we wish we had the TDI now!) The Golf will continue to do workhorse duty for at least a couple more years, by which time my wife's carpentry business should be well established and we can start investigating buying a truck. Hopefully there will be some environmentally-sensible options in that market segment by that time.

But in the mean time, we're eagerly anticipating the delivery of our shiny green egg! :)

darren.

Hi everyone

I've had my smart for almost 3 months now and I love it, love it, love it!!!!

It's a creamy white and black Pure. Not to many extras but it's still the best car i've driven in a long long time.

We've been everywhere in it. You should try traveling to Virginia in one, what a blast!

Bye for now :flowers:
