Brand new to me. 2008 passion

Hey, Y'all. I went to test drive a 08 passion with 51k on it. Thought it would make a passable daily driver for work.

I loved it..so I brought it home. It's Fun..auto mode it's a bit of a dud shifting. But in manual it gets up and goes.

There's a few things I need to fix. One hood latch on Christmas Is half missing.
The engine cover isn't secured down.
And the panorama roof needs some help.

Located a smashed one in a local you pick junk yard that I'm pulling two tires off of to have as spares.

This is going to be an adventure. Already got the look today at the gas station. All 6'2 of me got out of the smart next to a 4" tall chick driving a H2.

You'd be amazed at the looks we get when my son and I get out of the car, At over 6'4 and pushing 300 each, it scares some people. Been driving a smart since they arrived in 2008 I enjoy the drive and with a few mods, they can be a lot of fun!!
