From the article:
The countdown has started for the new fortwo cabrio, a particularly iconic variant of the new model series. The open-top two- seater will have its world premiere in September at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt. The new smart cabrio will launch in the United States in early summer of 2016.

Despite being early in the new year, there are already plans for a number of different smart events in 2015.  While many of these events are based in the US, Canadians are more than welcome to attend those as well.  There are also a few Canadian events in the planning phases as well, so have a look at those too!
Probably the first large event of the year is the Ohio April Fools rally, taking place April 10th-12th, 2015.  The rally will be held somewhere around Central Ohio (Location not yet determined), and is being organized by jwight.  Last years rally ended with the group touring the Ohio State Reformatory, the filming location of The Shawshank Redemption.  For further details on this years event, click through to the SCoA thread HERE
The next major event of the year is the Midwest Smart Rallye, "Meet me in St. Louie".  This event is taking place in St. Louis, Missouri from June 5th to 7th.  This one is shaping up to be a big event, with 20 cars signed up already.  For more details on the midwest rally, click HERE
Proposed for the same time frame is the Summer Blat, starting in Red Deer, Alberta, and ending in Lake Louise, Alberta.  The schedule outlined puts the event as running from June 5th until June 8th.  If you are interested in this event, post over in the thread HERE
Following up after that is the ever popular "OutSMARTing the Dragon" event.  Running from August 20th to August 23rd, this event pits drivers against the twisty-turny Tail of the Dragon, also known as US 129.  The Tail of the Dragon is an 11 mile stretch of road through the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, with 318 curves.  The event will be based out of the Fontana Village Resort in Fontana Dam, North Carolina.  For the full details, follow THIS link.
Finally, one event which is still in the "gathering interest" phase, is a 2015 Summer Driver's Training event that Mike T is looking to put together.  The event would be at a track (potentially Pitt Meadows or the Mission Raceway) in BC.  This event also holds the potential of being another 10th Anniversary of Smart in Canada event.  Because this event is just gathering interest, there is no set date.  If you are interested in participating in this, or would like to provide some input, look HERE

A separate registry of the smart fortwo 450's that were imported into the USA by G&K has now been put online!  Currently we have 114 of the cars in our registry, and are looking to find and enter the information for the rest of them.  The registry can be found HERE, or under the "Car Registries" menu at the top of the page.  The same disclaimer as we applied for the Canadian registry applies here:

    @  Francesco : (07 October 2015 - 05:20 AM) Yeah, but... It's the Model S of electric motorcycles...
    @  turbomar : (07 October 2015 - 05:09 AM) Wow, crazy price for that Ebike!
    @  Francesco : (07 October 2015 - 04:43 AM) No it doesn't match at all, but I guess it helps Polaris diversify. They've been pushing that BEV side by side for a couple of years and now it is powered by the Brammo DU and pack.
    @  marchanna : (07 October 2015 - 02:40 AM) Huh, it does;t really match with the style of the rest of their line-up. http://www.victorymo...ycles.com/en-us
    @  marchanna : (07 October 2015 - 02:37 AM) No I didn't see that. Interesting.
    @  Francesco : (06 October 2015 - 07:50 PM) Did you see that Polaris has bought out Brammo's electric bike business and is selling the Empulse as a Victory model?
    @  marchanna : (06 October 2015 - 07:04 PM) I've test driven a Zero. They're quite fun to drive; and dead silent.
    @  Francesco : (06 October 2015 - 05:10 PM) Recharge Mobiles in Peru. Seriously?
    @  steveyfrac : (06 October 2015 - 05:08 PM) I'm getting ads for Ford maintenance...
    @  Francesco : (06 October 2015 - 04:48 PM) Ooh, Zero Motorcycle. No idea why, but I'm intrigued
    @  Francesco : (06 October 2015 - 04:42 PM) Merchant Advance Capital now
    @  Francesco : (06 October 2015 - 04:41 PM) Nobody. I surf from my ipad
    @  dmoonen : (06 October 2015 - 01:27 PM) Mine shows diesel, diesel, solar, travel and diesel. Im thinking someone was on your computer
    @  marchanna : (06 October 2015 - 01:12 PM) My ad banners are normal. Has some one else been using your computer?
    @  Francesco : (06 October 2015 - 10:27 AM) @Huronlad that sounds interesting, looking forward to your observations when the snow hits!
    @  Francesco : (06 October 2015 - 10:24 AM) No
    @  Huronlad : (06 October 2015 - 08:37 AM) My Toyo winters showed up. The compound appears to be just as soft or softer than the WS-60.  There is more space between lugs on the Toyos, so I am expecting better snow traction. 
    @  marchanna : (06 October 2015 - 04:13 AM) Francesco: did you recently delete your history and/or browser cookies?
    @  Francesco : (05 October 2015 - 09:39 PM) It's unnecessary for our cars, the Bosch reg is just better
    @  steveyfrac : (05 October 2015 - 08:12 PM) YOu know, sometimes I want to buy an old CDI. I miss my old 2005 CDI. It was awesome.
    @  turbomar : (05 October 2015 - 08:10 PM) Ha ha Steve
    @  steveyfrac : (05 October 2015 - 07:57 PM) @Turbomar: Taken out of context, that's a really loaded question...
    @  turbomar : (05 October 2015 - 07:43 PM) Francesco, Whats bad about the self exciting?
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (05 October 2015 - 06:29 PM) and I think only IE/Edge default Do Not Track to on
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (05 October 2015 - 06:29 PM) but I don't think any browsers change "Do Not Track" in updates
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (05 October 2015 - 06:28 PM) and then there's also browser "Do Not Track" settings
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (05 October 2015 - 06:28 PM) It is possible to change whether or not it bases it on your habits
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (05 October 2015 - 06:28 PM) hmmmm
    @  Francesco : (05 October 2015 - 06:26 PM) for a while they were mostly car related, some related to my surfing habits (thank you Google) but now not relevant at all
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (05 October 2015 - 06:25 PM) ah
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (05 October 2015 - 06:25 PM) For example?
    @  Francesco : (05 October 2015 - 06:25 PM) weird
    @  FlossyTheSmart : (05 October 2015 - 06:25 PM) Nope.
    @  Francesco : (05 October 2015 - 06:25 PM) "Reduce stomach fat using this one Eire tip" WTF?
    @  Francesco : (05 October 2015 - 06:24 PM) We've been getting some weird banner ads lately. Max, any changes to the settings?
    @  steveyfrac : (05 October 2015 - 05:49 PM) And it would certainly explain the poor performance, despite adequate tread depth
    @  steveyfrac : (05 October 2015 - 05:39 PM) Ya. I don't remember remarking on the directional nature of the tire...
    @  Mike T : (05 October 2015 - 04:42 PM) D'OH! My family's cars have had asymmetric tires since 1971 (Michelin XAS)
    @  steveyfrac : (05 October 2015 - 01:07 PM) So, I just learned that the Continental TS800 winter tires are directional. That never occurred to me to check, despite being familiar with the concept from my Camaro extreme performance tire days.

    So, 50% odds that I installed the tires backwards..
    @  Francesco : (04 October 2015 - 08:19 PM) steve I think it's a safe bet. Do you know who is their distributor? I'd call the distributor. Around here I can get info from Canada Tire, one of the bigger distributors, before ordering from a retailer
    @  Francesco : (04 October 2015 - 08:18 PM) Mario, don't get the one with the self-exciting regulator.
    @  steveyfrac : (04 October 2015 - 06:17 PM) Gonna get a quote for the Toyo Observes from someone else
    @  steveyfrac : (04 October 2015 - 02:07 PM) Francesco: they're making me pay in full up front, before they order the tires in...
    @  dmoonen : (04 October 2015 - 12:39 PM) I think the summer is officially done. Pools are closed along with the summer toys and the winter cars and toys out out getting a tune up.
    @  turbomar : (04 October 2015 - 11:22 AM) Ok thanks Francesco! Ill check the local guys...
    @  Francesco : (04 October 2015 - 10:46 AM) maybe less
    @  Francesco : (04 October 2015 - 10:46 AM) Local rebuilders stock them, I think I paid $200 after the core refund
    @  turbomar : (04 October 2015 - 09:12 AM) http://www.ebay.com/...4ed8899&vxp=mtr
    @  turbomar : (04 October 2015 - 09:12 AM) I am shopping for an alternator. Checking g with you guys if this is the right one for my CDI?
    @  Francesco : (03 October 2015 - 09:46 PM) Before agreeing to them, check the dates on the tires. For that price they're still worth it if less than three years old.
