I was emaliing back and forth with Billy Cooper in Lincolnwood. I wanted to make sure that he understood that I wanted the smart that I ordered (blue/silver/black leather) since I went ahead and purchased an orphan (white/silver/red). I told him I still wasn't jazzed about the red interior. He said that the red would be a "collector's item" as if that would up the re-sale value.

Sound off...what do you think?:rolleyes:

The WHOLE car is a collector item...
As for the colors of the orphan offered to you, I'll take it any day!

the red interior really makes a statement, I almost wish I went with red but I have a black car and I am kind of sick of red and black , now black and lime green is a whole different story, I love lime green!!

I wouldn't care for red interior, or exterior. Red simply is not in my top 5 favorite colors. But, that's why they offer a selection of colors. Different stroke for different folks. However, I think the dealer is pulling your chain about the car being more collectable due to its red interior.

I got my Red/ Silver w/ red interior from Billy. At our 1st Chicago get together my car was by far the most popular. Everyone else had dark interiors but the red stood out and showcased the design of the interior.

My red interior really makes me smile on a grey, rainy day. Those days the inside is so bright and cheery. Also its easy to see if I left my phone on the seat. The only downside I can think of to the red interior is that it does not go with every color exterior.

My wanna-be dyslexic eyes first read "bright and CHEESY" :D Doesn't go with every exterior color? So my yellow w/red interior is going to be a bad thing? :eek: That's why I ordered it that way. BECAUSE I COULD! Yellow w/red and Blue w/red are awesome! Dare to be different. That's why I love the red interior.

It's a clown car. That's why I went with the red interior. It does make it less ho-hum. Classy, the smart will never be. There's a reason it's not wearing MB badges.

So that means the yellow with red interior(like mine) is double-collectible? Remember it's only valuable if somebody wants it. I like mine.

Jeepster55, I am a short (if you call going through Kokomo short) 100 miles north of you in Indiana. I will be selling Poppy as soon as mine comes in. I sent you a friend request. Reply if you were serious.
