Canadian Smart Motorcade-Welcome!

I will be driving to Cooperstown on July 28th from North Albany. Unfortunately, I don't have my Smart yet but hopefully by that day it will be ordered for early '08. ( I have a very early $99 reservation)
I have followed the evolution of the Smart for more than a year and am excited about finally seeing it come to fruition in the US. It will be exciting to see that many Smarts going down the Adirondack Northway (I-87). I live very near to Exit 7 on I-87 and when I see you all coming, I am going to join into your motorcade if you don't mind. If you expect to get to Cooperstown by 1-2 PM, you should be passing exit 7 at around 11:30-12:00noon.
I have a small car too---look for a silver Honda S-2000---that will be me! Please have a safe trip and I will look forward to meeting and talking with you all about your Smart cars!

Have a safe trip!

With the Baseball Hall Of Fame Inducting this weekend I think this is ill-concieved. VERY Bad timing. It will be an absolute ZOO in Cooperstown. Best Of luck to all who head over there, you'll need it!
