Not much here, mostly an overview of the "green" LA Auto Show...

autos.canada.com said:
The oh-so-cute Smart car with a French pedigree proved an attention-grabber in the Convention Center's entryway as the press corps filed into the show on the first of two preview days.

A company spokeswoman said the big rollout comes in January with 74 dealers selling the new vehicles across the country.

The car for two is made in Hambach, France, and the company boasts of "amazing" gas mileage of 33 miles per US gallon in the city and 40 on the highway. Those numbers were revised down from 40 and 45, respectively, from this year.

Called the Smart Fortwo, it is billed as one of the most economical cars on the market today.

That's not surprising since it's powered by an eco-gentle 61-cubic-inch engine that puts out 70 horsepower.

I went to the LA Auto Show and saw the reaction at the Smart Booth. First there were a lot of people looking at the car and the reactions were very positive.

I had some photos I wanted to post, BUT I haven't reached the number required to be able to post.... So, let me say, At any time, there were a lot of people looking at the Smart Car.

The first was taken early in the show and the second was taken late in the show. Both photos were taken on Wednesday, November 21, 2007.





I'm currently working on the videos, but that takes longer. However, the first video may be ready...
