OK, Stealth, what makes it a Smart car? And don't tell me it's because it's a 2 seater Mercedes, the size of a roller skate and gets 90,000 miles per gallon.
Did you ever see one that's been in an accident? (I'm pullin' yer chain here - except for the accident).

Hey Kev,

Tinker Bell, the Smart car and a Piaggio for a guy that's big enough to destroy any thought of stealth. Do you rotate the springs on them?
Would you not be better off with a FIAT Abarth (at least the top folds back so you can have your head high enough to see out of it)?
Hey, here's an idea; get a white Abarth and you could sneak up on people who would think its a spitwad on the end of a shoebox. Wink
It'd be pretty easy to go completely invisible at Sleeping Bear too. shrug

Not so stealthy Bob

Better be careful about promising the rear end for her birthday.  Apparently Smart is thinking about reviving the Smart forfour in an improved form for the US market in the next year or two.

Kev,
Have no plans to see them and not sure I remember them very well. shrug

Jerry,
I saw a Smart Roadster/convertible coupe in Germany last year and it's really an attractive car. And it actually has a front and rear as well as resembling a real car. ThumbsUp

Hello Kevin..... Hello Gradygal


Yup..... We are  going to Michigan  via Ontario to visit with Frank and Dee Jezek. We'll be  leaving Mass. on June 9th and arriving on Thursday the 14th.

I planned our route out there.  Haven't figured out how to get home yet.      thinking

I'm taking retirement one day at a time.

Have a safe and wonderful Summer.
