    Our 2008 got serviced at Aristocrat Motors in KC, we haven't done anything to our 2005, unfortunately I don't know any mechanic who knows about our cars.

    Where do you get your cars serviced? I usually go to Quick Lube for oil change. But I think I'll do it myself on my Smart. Have you ever had any work done on them locally? Just wondering what mechanic may know about Smart Cars.

    We were extremely close to participate in the parade, I got the entry form but at the last minute we decided no to, perhaps next year we can get all the smart cars in town in the parade, I mean, if they have lots of golf carts in the parades why not our cars? I remember seeing the motorized the recliner, I have a picture, I love taking pictures. Let's try making a smart reunion with all the smart cars in town, we did it 3 years ago, people from Topeka, Kansas City and Wichita came, we had a blast.
    Looks like you're going to have fun making gadgets for your car.

    Are you going to be in the Christmas Parade? I considered it, but decided time was too short. You may have seen me and the missus in previous St. Patricks and Christmas Parades in our motorized recliners and love seats. I really enjoy dreaming up and fabricating unique things. I'm an engineer at Glendo Corporation. I'm sure I'll be making some additions to my little Passion. I am adding a tow bar next week. Not for a trailer (although I may build a small one), but for other options like a large wind up key for future parades! The ones I see on Smart Madness are too small to look authentic. Yes, we need to get together soon.

    Awesome a fifth Smart in town! We have to meet, we love meeting smart people, and yes we live across the street from Mary Herbert school. Hope to meet you soon.

    We live at 1701 West 13th (corner of 13th and Grand). I tried to buy the one at Emporia Motors but they just wouldn't work with me. I used Autoguru.com to find mine in Tulsa. This is a great website, it gives you the Kelley Blue Book value and how long it's been on the dealers lot. Are you over by the little school on 7th? If you are, I've driven by your Smarts and kept telling my wife that I wanted one! They are a fantastic little car.

    Hi, where are you located? There are 4 Fortwos in Emporia, we're the proud owners of 2 of them, there is another for sale at a local dealer. The local cars don't have tow bars.

    I'm the proud owner of a 2010 Passion. How many other Smart Cars are there in Emporia? I've had mine for about 3 weeks and love it. I'd really like to add a tow bar. Has anyone local installed one?

    Alfonso, Hi - I'm the librarian at Flint Hills Tech College in Emporia. Bill Hanlon, Director of the Sustainable Living Center asked me to contact you. He's hosting a Sustainability Fair next Saturday and would like to talk to you. His number is 620-341-1335.
    ( I hope I have the right person - Bill saw the article about you and your family in the Gazette on Friday.) Thanks

    Hi Steve, yes I'm assuming Andy will come, I wrote him a couple day ago to confirm but he didn't write back. We have the cameras ready so I'll post pictures tonight.
    Hopefully the rain is not that bad.
    See you next time.

    A, we are not driving down today Sunday. Too far for just a couple hours. And bad rain storm too all day. The storm blew out my Mac early tonight. Back up computer. Is Andy going down??Take lots of photo's and post them on this site. Have fun with the Wichita group. See you guys when we have the picnic in your home town.

    Are you coming down Saturday or Sunday? If so do you want to get together with Andy, Terry for lunch?? Or do something with them the 21st.
