Hello-
I'm a transplant from the Old Country, home of the SMART, and very excited that the SMART finally made its way over here!
Turning 60 next April, I WILL have a (pre-owned) SMART by then!
It'll be - most likely - a METALLIC BLUE one with SILVER FRAME, it MUST have heated seats (living in Montana!), and the license plate will be SMILEMAKER, as I am a Dental Technician, specialized in making Dentures...

Even though I have seen a number(5?) of SMARTS here in Missoula, I know only one owner - will ask him to join as well -
its a Cabrio, now in GRIZZ colors- maroon and silver-, advertising his B&B
"GIBSON MANSION" - a beautiful place...

Leads to a used SMART are appreciated, SKIP white or black - sorry (those colors make me look OLD!!!)

"in waiting" - Sandy:wave:

"smilemaker" ?

Awfully long for a license plate... here in FL they limit us to 6 or 7 characters depending on the type of plate you order (they have literally dozens of styles) - but you can add a hyphen or space to that number.
Maybe go with "SMLE MKR" or something similiar.
Good luck on your search for a used smart ... you might have to travel out of state to locate one.
Welcome to the forum - mind the hanging down bits and keep a sharp eye on JetFuel . . . :D

Welcome! :) Hope you find a smart soon!

And remember, if you find a really good deal on a white or black smart don't rule it out, just swap panels for a different color! Just make sure you like the tridion and interior color since you can't easily change those. I started white and am now red. I'll probably be yellow or green sometime down the road.

As jetfuel said, used panel sets probably start in the $500 range and go up depending on color and condition. You might be able to catch a deal on a new set as well. They were going for $700 delivered (non-metallics) for a while.
