have spoken to marisa and she seems nice but new. did your buddy have a reservation? when i inquired about a orphin, they told me that they have not had one customer cancel their order. every one was delivered to the reservation holder. i am 1184, the sales mgr told me that he expects 2 deliveries this month, but from the sound of things on this site, deliveries are pretty much stalled

If anyone is interested, I was at the Smart Creve Coeur store last night, and there was a yellow/black cabrio orphan, fully loaded, even black powder coated rims. It looked pretty sweet, and might still be there.

I would have grabbed it, but then the one I'm waiting for would be an orphan,.. but I have a conscience, can't leave mine behind. :p

cyalume,

Did you know if they had dealer add-on's with that yellow cabrio? They called and left me a message about it a few days back, but I haven't called them, and figured it was gone, or they added some expensive dealer stuff to the price.... maybe I'll call them.....

It was basically fully loaded, not sure if any dealer add-ons, except I know the dealer did have the wheels powdercoated black.

The black wheels really seem have set it off, looked great.

the powder coated wheels seem to be like a grand. when they gave me the price, i did some quick math and it looked like they were a thousand high. never told me about the wheels. learned that here, that must have been the difference. cost of car was quoted at 19.5

ms marissa was nice enough to call me this afternoon and tell me that 2 smarts arrived today, I can pick up my car on monday, my wifes car is no where to be found. we ordered 15 minutes apart so i guess that explains it. The best news is that i am leaving on tuesday for a trip and my son is on spring break so between the two of them i can only imagine how many miles will be on my little smartie on April 1 when i return. i have a paypal account and i am thinking of starting a pool $5 a guess, winner with the closest guess splits the pot. what do you think?

Pure Orphan

I just turned down a pure orphan at Creve Couer smart center. (St. Louis). It is yellow with A/C, radio & power steering. I did not take it because of the color. If anyone is interested call asap.

What's wrong with yellow? I would hope to be seen in traffic since it is a bit of a compact car. Not to mention, that is my color choice. I would have picked plaid, but that color wasn't available. :)

Nothing is wrong with yellow. I just think a 49 year old man would look a little out of place in a bright yellow & black bumblebee car. I have the passion configured in white 1/24 and my DDE date is 7/19 so I'll just wait. But to each his own.

Not quite sure how this works, but thanks for posting info on yellow orphan. My wife and I picked it up last night. We were even wearing our bumble bee shirts and had them take pictures. We are a lot younger at 62 and 60.
