I am typing this through tears. Some idiot threw his car in reverse to get a parking space, slammed into me, and jumped out of humongous SUV screaming at me that I was too small to see and shouldn't have "been in his way". His insurance is totaling my beloved '08 Yellow Peril that I have cherished and loved since the moment I put my name on the waiting list, and waited and waited and waited for it to hit these shores.

I am looking for a low mileage, one owner cabrio, hopefully as loved and cherished as mine was. (Although that would be hard.) Any year considered.

I'm in Atlanta, willing to drive several hundred miles for the right vehicle, and will pay cash. Light Yellow would be a welcome bonus. No red. For some reason, I just never learned to appreciate the red.

Please text or email photos/details/asking price to Melinda 770-757-0615 [email protected]

This is our second totaled '08 Smart this year. The other one was sideswiped by a tractor trailer. I guess we were overdue after nine years of flawless performance and enjoyment, but good grief!!!!! My babies are dropping like flies. It's like losing a much loved pet. I can't even picture my driveway without a dose of sunshine yellow in it.

Sorry for your loss.

I know there are plenty of near new smarts at the dealers with low miles, but they are mostly white and not cabrios, but you never know...

I know the SMART is small, but how do you not see a YELLOW car? :eek: Were you hiding in front of a yellow wall?

Ironically, that's exactly what the officer said.

Thanks for the leads. I specifically want a cabrio. The three in the link, one is a Brabus. We've had six '08s, but no Brabus. I'm a little scared of those, since i have no experience with them. The second has a pig ugly car fax, and the third is a hardtop listed in the convertible category.

I've called several out of town dealers, waiting on a couple to get back, and one that informed me that their low mileage cabrio with gorgeous photos and a clean car fax is "parts only". Can't quite figure that one out.

Sorry to hear what happened.

You may also want to check CarMax. There are currently 4 convertibles with under 40k miles.

Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions, especially the guy who suggested cars.com

I have found a nice little cabrio, sadly, not yellow, but I drive less than 3,000 miles a year now, so I guess I need to grow up and get over it, lol. Have booked a flight to pick her up Saturday and bring her on home.

This will be Smart #7 for us. Hard to believe. Had three since they shipped them over in '08. Two of those totaled and replaced just this year. The other two were treated as temporary cars because they were cheaper than long term rental cars for a daughter who split time between here and overseas for several years.

I would just like to say, that neither I nor my other daughter considered anything else but a Smart to replace our totaled cars. We are very, very loyal to these wonderful little cars.

It's like I tell people, you either love 'em or hate 'em, and if you do love 'em, it's with a sincere passion.

May these guys last at least another nine years, and hopefully well into classic car-dom!
