My wife & I have been talking about buying a Smart Fortwo for a couple years but never came upon a nice reasonably priced low mileage used one. We happened upon a Rally Red 2009 one owner at a Toyota dealership & checked it out. After doing the dance & coming down in price we brought it home. I didn't know how big these things are inside! We have an 82 Corvette Collector Edition & this little Smart Fortwo has lots more space. I have been a mechanic for almost 35 years & have repaired almost any brand but never touched a Smart. I have a couple minor things to do like putting a front license bracket on & repairing the sunshade but otherwise it is perfect. I'm looking forward to summer & finding a group of owners to do a cruise somewhere.

A rally sounds like fun. We were always too busy to go to any Vette functions when our daughter was young so a rally would be a new experience.

All our gatherings are posted on the Nebraska Chapter of the SCOA forum, so check it often. I'll try to remember to post here, too. I also send notices to everyone on my group list each month. Hoping to meet you guys soon!

SMART CAR GATHERING -- Sunday, April 27, 2014

Noon - Lunch at Tico’s Restaurant; 317 S 17th St.; Lincoln, NE

Those coming from Omaha on I80, take the 401/9th Street Downtown exit.
Travel approx. 4 miles into the city and turn left (East) on O Street.
Turn right (South) on S. 16th St.
Turn left (East) on K St. and stay in left lane.
Turn left (North) on S. 17th St.

Tico’s faces S. 17th St. There is a small parking lot on the South side and a larger parking lot on the North side of the building.


After lunch we’ll caravan to the Nebraska State Capitol for a guided tour or just walk around on your own. You won’t want to miss a visit the observation deck on 14th floor where you can see miles in all directions. I found this 11-second U-tube video shot from the observation deck (looking to the South) to give you an idea of what it’s like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGe6w78Pr5k

I will need to make reservations at Tico’s so please post a reply (by noon Fri., April 25) how many in your group will join us for lunch.

Hoping to see you soon!
Marcy

I missed this thread as well, I've been a bit out of pocket here on SCOA since we moved to Lincoln.

:welcome: to the forum, aka The Asylum, where we are all a bit crazy about our smarts and some of us are just crazy. Watch out for padded cell #1 , he's the craziest of us all.

I hope you can make it to one of the Lincoln smart gatherings. They are great bunch of people. Marcy is great at planning each months meets.
