It's funny. Most everyone bought these little tykes to commute with or to save on gas or for a second car, yet most of us end up treating ours like our "collector car". What a love affair.

I have not seen my smart for three weeks. Should I wash and wax the loaner? I am tempted too.

New 195/50 tires put on the car for the KC trip last week, washed over the weekend, and will be continuing the cleaning and maintenance tonight. I'm driving the truck until I leave for KC...

I beat a Audi R8 away from a light this morning, but I'm not sure he was aware it was a race. :-)

Hubby & I are taking the Bumble and zipping out to Northampton MA for restaurant week tonight. Think I'm going to try a new place to eat. 3 courses for $20.10 and we have a huge choice of places! Of course that doesn't include the bottle of wine we will no doubt have.

I just got done washing ,waxing and generally cleaning it up, tried Armorall wheel protectant on my black painted wheels and they look terrible. I guess tomorrow I'll work on them again, so far I'm not too impressed with this product but I'll give it a second chance. It makes the wheels look like they have an oily sheen on them and I don't live anywhere near the gulf!:eek:

Left mine in the Airport parking lot two weeks ago. I hope it's still there.

I have the stock wheels on my Passion and used the Armour All without any issues. I wonder if the paint vs metal makes a difference in the product use and outcome.

Now the problem is..... what will you do with your smart tomorrow? For me, that's a problem. I just bought a spare tire and all weather floor mats. I want the rubber mat for the back, a scangauge, vinyl sport stripes, better speakers, tach and clock, on and on and on..........hmmmmmmmmmm
