Smartee




I saw this in one of my neighbor's driveway. I've never seen one before. I had to check online to see what it actually is. These are called Smart Cars made by Mercedes-Benz. Do you see the license plate? They "named" it Smartee.
Special Note: You wouldn't catch me driving one of those. After being in that accident last year, I was sure glad I was driving a TRUCK! That little Honda that ran the light and hit me head on was totalled. My truck got a new bumper and headlight. AND an even more cautious driver than before. Drive safe everyone.....

Hey Dee Dee, check out my posting for Nov.30,2008 and Dec.3, 2008. Use the blog archives. it's really a great car, but you are right; it's not a replacement for a truck.

Frank: Let me know when you get to test drive that one you have on your post. I'd love to hear about how they are out and about on the road.

That is tiny with very little protection; not for me either!

I think it's cute as can be. I saw one the other day with the license plate 2SMART2.

I have seen these cars. I think they are quite cute. I wonder just how fuel efficient they are?!

Okay, I don't mean to be a "smart alec" about the "smartee" and I am sure it is a great car, but I can't help but picture a hand coming down, pulling the car backward and lettin 'er rip.

The Smart Car is very popular all over Europe where streets are narrow and parking is non-existent. They seem to be just as safe as any other small car and excellent on gas mileage.
