First Sighting

At least for me, here in Cincinnati, of the Smart ForTwo:


Seen in the 100 block of W. 8th Street while walking to work today. It was parked behind a BWM 5 or 7 series, which looked like it was towing a two year old in arears.
Can I say I want one?

my wife's been bugging me about a smart car for over a year now. we settled for a yaris, which is roughly the size of one and a half smart cars.

It reminds me of the Yugo - the car that you put into your trunk in case your real car ran out of gas!

It looks like you wouldn't "get in" that car. It would be more like "putting it on."

email sent to Fr. Burns, will see if he responds....

I don't think I want one...but I'm not sure I know what it is. I don't think I'd want to share the road with 18-wheelers on I-75 in one of these!

For priests and old folks, Smartfor2 seems like a good choice. But, like the butcher's four pack and the ranch house, it seems to me that such a car fosters a contraceptive culture.

Maybe it's just me, though.

Will,

I think it is being marketed as an alternative second car primarily for urban commuters. The things are all over in the cities in Europe, and is just one of several of the same type of 'super-minis'

Nice pic on the cover of US News and World Report
