I was finally IN my smart when I had a sighting... I always seem to be driving something else when I see one, so I don't overenthusiatically respond (though I geek out inside, lol).

I've seen a red (the orangey-red and believe silver) on Mountain Road and Lake Shore Drive in Pasadena 3 times now... I've even gotten calls from friends asking if I changed my car as they've seen it too. Good to see another "regular" in the dirty 'dena after a year! Also spotted a grey 450 at the 7-11 gas station at Mansion House and Mountain a few weeks ago as I was heading out of AutoZone in my brothers truck (the big green booger).

We have been visiting in the Bethesda/Chevy Chase area since Saturday. We did not see any other Smarties until Monday night. We saw another one (blue) in the parking garage on Tuesday. We were surprised that we did not see more. In Williamsburg there are at least 7 different Smarts - 2 others in my subdivision alone - so seeing other Smarts is not a huge deal.

We drove through Kenwood to see the cherry blossoms and our little Smart was a big hit there. People waved at us, stopped us to ask questions, and took our picture.

Had a really great Smart sighting and it was in the parking lot of my church during a play we do every year called "The day he wore my crown" depicting the last days of our lord and savior jesus before his resurrection. I had posted a link to their site on another forum subejct. Anyway, this car was an all Black Passion coupe with 30 day tags bought from Tysons Smart center. From what i saw it had a black interior, but it was a fast look as i am in the play as a pharasee, and my cue was not too far off.
If that describes anybody here, hope you were moved by the play, and by the way, come out and see it if you can. It goes on until Good Friday.

BTW i told this to all my co-horts in the church who know me well, and yes some of them did their little jokes. HA HA, but to see another Smart in the parking lot of my place of worship? Priceless.

I was at the HomeDepot this afternoon in Fairfax, at West Ox and Lee Hwy. As I was leaving I saw a blue Smart in the parking lot.

When I saw the wheels I knew whose it was even before I saw the plates

So Gstreetcomic what where you doing at my HomeDepot???

I waited around a bit, but had other stops to make.
Always great to see more Smarts on the road, and parking lots!!!


FUN SMART

I am a merchandiser at that Home Depot on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week, and was there until 3.18 PM. Wish i had seen you as it would have been the second Smart i saw today, Saw a Sliver passion in the area as well, but it is not nearly as colorful as yours. BTW nice catch.:)

I do want to note a Smart sighting i had last night at the Merrifield complex where there is an x-sport fitness center off of Gallows road and then saw it drive down Gallows to route 50 and then down Prosperity Rd. It was a Red and Sliver 08 cabrio with the Virginia vanity tag "Red Fish". I did give a friendly toot but never got to wave at ya. If this is anybody here, just wanted to say hi.

Nobody has posted to this thread in a while, i guess Smarts are getting more common in the DC area, but i had a really interesting Smart sighting today. It was going on 123 in the Tysons area, and not only did i get to meet this what i thought was a burgundy Smart turned out to be bungee red for a BMW i recall, but this person is from Oregon, an active member on this forum for that matter who goes by the user name John_H. Think i am yanking your chain, well i have photographic proof in my member gallery titled G Street Comic Meets John H. It was a good time, and what a car it was. :D

cool. I keep waving at other smart drivers but nobody waves back and some even give me strange looks. So I think a lot of folks out there driving are not on the list and know we have a group.

Not only did I see the blue/silver smart on the road in Vienna on Sunday, but today while heading into Home Depot, I run into a blue/silver smart miles from that other encounter. It was gstreetcomic again!

I remembered the handle when we exchanged stories and info on that very cold Sunday shoulder so the meeting was even a more pleasant experience being someone I already knew existed. To bump into him again today is just outrageous! I spent most of my smart's life in Oregon, traveled to Florida - my base in my job search - and am visiting the Northern Virginia suburbs for a few days. While here, I've run into gstreetcomic twice!

Very cool.

If you were to cross the Potomac (stay on the bridges, the ice is not thick enough) you'd see/meet more... :wink:

You should have seen my-coworkers around your car, they were saying it was a cousin and one guy even said he never seen a convertible. I gave him the info on how the top drops down, one guy even asked about mileage. :D
As much as the media tried to tear it down, it yet attracts attention like bees to a honey hive. BTW Jpaul, I may drop in DC this friday just to see how many are in town, and to test out a route for a future cruise.
