Cool, I always liked Ernie! But, "they run on three and a half cylinders"?
He'd make a good spokesperson, if smart ever needed to advertise in the USA.

I love Ernest Borgnine!

"Q. What is your current hobby?
A. My wife bought me a Smart Car. It's the passion of my life right now and I'm having a ball with it. I've had it up to 85 miles per hour just to see how fast it would go and it wound up pretty good. They've got plenty of room inside, but they're for two people.
I went to Italy to make a picture and I saw this little car and said I just gotta have one. Man, they're just the loveliest things you've ever seen and they run on three and a half cylinders and eight gallons of gasoline and they go! They take off and get you where you want to go very easily and very quickly and as nicely as any big car would do."

I've always believed that besides being a fine actor, he's really one of the good guys.
And now I love him all the more!

Just a little curious about the three and a half cylinders. that's gotta be a mis-quote!

He drives a smart car?! How cool! He was great in "The Poseidon Adventure" and as the voice of Mermaid Man in "SpongeBob SquarePants".

They need to remake Escape From New York, with Borgnine driving a smart instead of the cab.

Maybe a cabrio.

TMZ reports that he stays young by frequently "pleasing himself." FWIW.
