Nebraska anyone?

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick intro. I've been hanging out at Club Smart Car (Canadian Forum) for many months now and just recently discovered this forum. Seems to be much more active for us here in the USA so I've joined. I'm a car guy and have always been a fan of small cars. I got the Cooper when it first came here in 2002 and just last year traded for a Cooper S Convertible (which I sold this summer to prep for the Smart Car.)

I got my reservation in on March 20 and confirmed my order on October 8 (just days after my test drive in Kansas City). I actually saw a story where Dave was quoted as saying "Omaha" by name as getting a dealership so I'm excited about that (if not Kansas City will be my dealership).

About it... look forward to hearing about (and seeing) lots of photos come January as deliveries begin.

Vlad

Welcome, Vlad! I hang out at CsC a bit as well. It's very Canada-centric, but there's much good info there too. We don't have as much history here yet, as Canada has had their smarts since '04, but we'll catch up in no time!

Found the Omaha reference in an interview with Dave Schrembi done some time ago.

Here's the quote - But “even non-metro areas, including Omaha, NE and Jackson, MS will have smart stores,“ smart’s president says.

Sorry, can't post link as my post count is not up to 3 yet.

Just a thought: go ahead and post the link, just omit the http:// - we'll just cut-and-paste it.

Cool huskrbb! Glad to hear I'm not the only one from Omaha!

Here's the link to the article:

aiada.org/newsroom/newsDetails.asp?id=57297

Funny... even if I put www it still doesn't let me post it, but looks like the link works without it.

The Omaha reference is half way down (under the "Special Smart showrooms" heading).
