information

There is a big article on us as http://www.kansascity.com/2010/06/11/2010808/first-gathering

Also if you can register for the Kansas City Star Newspaper sight. Some people put negative remarks in there and it would be nice if we defend our Smart Cars.

That would be great! I didn't get a chance to see it at the hotel, something about lightning hitting a transformer or something. With no a.c.,I had to hang around in the back parking lot to keep cool (And drink a little beer).

f you see a bunch of tiny automobiles parading today through downtown Kansas City, donít expect to see a dozen clowns come pouring out of the lead car.

The circus isnít in town, but the first national gathering of Smart car owners is.

I just loved that opening remark from the reporter. Typical of the general public. The fortwo seems to bring out the comedians in most people.

It looked like the circus, after the police broke us up in the parade, at the Power in Light district Kansas City.
Car going up and down, and across each street downtown. It was kind of funny. My wife was laughing watching them.

The reporter who interviewed me on the KC star paper write up never said anything about clown cars. He wanted to know what it was like to down size from a SUV after 2 years. If I would buy another smart car too. I told him I love my little car.

Don't forget to mark the good comments as Recommended as you read them.

Reading those comments makes me think someone from another car company searches the web to make comments. I have seen many of them before.

How many have heard this one before

33 city, 41 highway is a not so smart car. I once had an old honda civic crx that got 52 mph.

With the smart car as small as it is it should get 50-60 miles to a gallon minimum
.

Or this

These cars are dumb. They don't get much more gas mileage than other economical cars that are full size cars, and they're death traps!
And who can figure the Math on this one

For a little more you can get a Prius with real room for four and 50 mpg town or highway. That's smarter!!
I do like this one

Do you have to pull the car back until it clicks to get it to go fast?
