It popped up from out of nowhere and I didn't see when it left. Maybe a visitor from up north. I must say when i was in Seattle last week there were plenty of 450 fortwo's buzzing around downtown.

I think I just found the mother of all spottings...! I was at FutureShop with some friends in Toronto on Queensway (near IKEA Etobicoke), and as we pulled into the parking lot I shrieked and pointed! Buddy thought he hit someone. :)

GAS fortwo, imported from EUROPE! Somewhere crazy like Russia or Tunkjuigkdsjkjistan. No idea. Check it:

I saw a really sweet looking smart at the Esso on King St. on the way to the CIAS this weekend.

All black, except for two bright blue racing stripes up the center of the car, and a BRABUS front spoiler.

The smart logo on the front was replaced with an old school MB logo that looked like this: Posted Image

Good Find Duck, the window sticker reads Hellenike Demokratia, Old Hellas You know.

He's a Greek from Greece - by and in the Mediterainian sea.

NAPA in Victoria has a new 451 - complete with Yellow cap - hmmm... maybe they are going to start carrying parts - did see that a company in the States is selling after market brake rotors.Almost ran into Mayor Lowe while I was departing the TPM parking lot.Given the number of 451's they have ready to roll out the door at TPM - I think Vancouver Island will be retaining the crown for highest per capita smarts in North America for a while yet.Cheers,Cameron

Alright, who's 451 is this? white Passion with HIDs (at least they looked like HIDs) at the UBC Campus.That was a quick mod to HIDs.

At least once a week I sight others, lately it's been almost daily, and frequently two others in one area!I was at crappy tire today and found this sad little pulse in the parking lot. Poor thing had a thrown a shoe (flat tire) and was in such sore need of TLC that I felt a bit angry. :angry: He had diesel spilled all over one fender and his block heater connector cap was dangling unused. The filth was so deep you could only see in where the driver had been scraping the mud off with an ice scraper. Poor thing. I think it was black shell and white panels. :unsure:post-5434-1205391412_thumb.jpgI let iris keep him company while I shopped. :wub: Apparently I learned from the guys inside that the little thing was there waiting on a special order tire and wheel. I do hate to see things let to go like that though. Am I too anal? :rolleyes:

I made an interesting sighting today, but I was in the midst of a left-hand turn at Overlea and Millwood in Toronto. It was a 450 (perhaps 451) tricked out by its corporate owner. It had three giant "books" on the roof, lying one on top of the other. As I say, I was negotiating a turn and couldn't make out the sign on the door.Has anyone else seen this one?

In London this afternoon, we saw a Bay gray with black tridion going north on Wonderland Rd that turned east onto Oxford St. I think the license plate was AVXM 181, but didn't have my camera to record it. Couldn't catch up with this little speedster to say "hi". As we weren't driving our DR MAP, it was probably just as well.Alberta

I see another smart or even two, nearly every time I'm out, actually. Seems overkill to report them all. there's a black one out there, and red with black cell, and white with black cell and panda advertising on it. Probably others I've already forgotten.

Spotted a showroom dealer toolin around in a blue coupe in SoHo two weeks ago. Also spotted a blue/silver cabrio at MB Park Avenue next door to my office. It was sitting on the sidewalk and then they put it on their showroom floor. Sweet!
