smart Car Sightings (post pictures or VIN if you have)

2,340 posts in this topic

Collecting the VINs is not really super important now that we have them all!  But updates are still made if a car is spotted.

No photos,  but I saw a red 450 cabrio and a black 451 passion coupe pass by on Hwy 8 while I was working in Sebringville this afternoon.

Spotted this one last weekend.  I wonder what kind of fertilizer would be appropriate...

Astro turf...I bet!

 

 

Lokks neat all the same...lol

 

The body's I have seen as semi concept cars on youtube were amazing to say the least.   Check out Smart Car kit cars or bodies.....Someone has photoshopped real life muscle cars and classics into the shape and wheel length of a Smart Car....some would be fantastic if we could make them...IMHO.

Saw a 450 up in Markham that had dual exhausts with twin tips. Had a wrap for some company that I thought had something to do with auto auctions but nothing on google, wish I was a bit faster with my camera.

Who's got the 450 Cabrio painted OD green on a black frame, with the shark-face nose art?

That looks like the one!

It's parked outside the local "Inn" so they may be just passing through.

Wish I had saved the ad info which might have narrowed down where it was for sale. I looked at some of the other pix I saved from the Ad and it has a Glassford Jeep license holder. That dealer is in Ingersol Ontario which is between London and Woodstock.

Anyway the paintjob looked sharp, but for some reason the back plastic window was all loose and weird, looked like a shower curtain. Not sure what would cause it to go like that unless it had been replaced at some time with poor quality plastic or if it was sewn in weird.

The best way to deal with those rear plastic windows I was told by a canvas guy was to sew in a zipper and then make a window that uses a zipper to allow it to be removable, makes it easier to replace and he said something about using a harder plastic..?  I don't know but was asking about it for my brother's convertable, not a smartcar.....but they were known for rear windows blowing out at speed..?  Bad glue between window and top..

Last week I had a 450 coupe drive past the Post Office in Dublin, ON.  This past Saturday caught 450s and a 451 on the dashcam.
