Front page news in the Bangor Daily News Weekend Edition

Just got my Passion Cab at the dealer yesterday (Lynnfield, MA) and got home to Orrington last night (will post in new members group later today on this). Went out to the mailbox this morning for the paper and low and behold there's a Yellow Cab with story on the front page. Since I haven't posted three times before now I can't list the link. But if you go to the Bangor Daily News web site at bangornews.com add the tag /news/t/city.aspx?articleid=164471&zoneid=176 you can find the article. Oh and for you CA guys/girls according to the article you can't be driving Smart Cars as they are not sold in CA due to emissions.... Maybe there is a little misinformation here as well as the line space. enjoy

Thanks SubSir88 for the link

Thanks again. This gets my post count to the magic 3. Next post I should be able to add a link myself

Hope you guys enjoy the write-up. The BDN is not known for this type of coverage for a small car.. now if it were a half ton 4 wheel drive p/u with a gun rack......

The article states that the car doesn't meet CA or MA emissions standards, so is not sold in those states. They're mixing up information on grey market cars with the current model.

I hope someone contacts the paper and asks for a retraction.
