Yesterday, The Dude (Front, left) attended a Smart Car rally held on Lombard St in San Franciso. It is, admittedly, nicer looking than a brewery parking lot.

Anyone want to take over modship of this community? I'm trying to shrink the number of communities I moderate.

If there's no response to this post, I'm going to close this community in 24 hours.

Smart Gatherings in Canada [23.5.06 / 2048]

Via TheSmart.ca:

In The DaVinci Code, Sophie Neveu and Robert Langdon flee the Louvre in her smart fortwo, following clues to reveal a stunning historical truth.

Opening May 19, the film version of Dan Brown's 'The Da Vinci Code' was created by director Ron Howard, producer Brian Grazer, and scriptwriter Akiva Goldsman, the OSCAR-winning team behind 'A Beautiful Mind.' The movie features a star-studded cast including double Academy Award winner Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Jean Reno, Sir Ian McKellen, Alfred Molina, and Paul Bettany.

On May 27, there's another opportunity for you to take part in a smart/Da Vinci event -- smart gatherings in Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal. These gatherings will give you a chance to mingle with smart owners and specialists. Events will be held at the following locations starting around 1:00pm:

So, I'm an American who's fallen in love with the smart fortwo coupe. As far as I know, they're only available in Canada. True, Zap Motors is hoping to start selling them in September of '06, but some of us would be just as happy with a used one. So, is the best option to buy one from a Canadian used car lot? Are they available in Mexico (I live right on the US/Mexico border)? Also, anyone know what kind of conversions have to be donew to make them US street legal? If anyone knows the answers to these questions, it'd be great!

Smarts together in Toronto [18.6.05 / 0030]

Some guys from Steamwhistle Brewery and Smart.MBCanada.com put together a Smart Rally at the Steamwhistle brewery last Sunday. YHB attended (a photo is at that link, YHB is front and right. The Smart is the silver & silver closest).

It was a great time, and there was beer and camraderie. I wish I'd had some food with me, honestly, but I often think that in church, so it doesn't really make it that strange an event.

The discussion thread may be found here.

More SMART USA News [24.5.05 / 1041]

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - U.S. car customiser ZAP caused a stir on Tuesday by announcing it had ordered $1 billion worth of Smart minicars from DaimlerChrysler, but any deal seemed far from certain.

California-based ZAP, which modifies the Smart car to meet U.S. safety and emissions standards, acknowledged it was still awaiting confirmation that the order would be filled.

The German-American carmaker's Smart division, which does not sell the Smart itself in the world's biggest car market, said it was unaware of any such order.

DaimlerChrysler shares eased 0.3 percent to 32.40 euros by 0850 GMT, slightly bettering an 0.6 percent decline in the DJ Stoxx European car sector index.

"ZAP placed the purchase order directly to the DaimlerChrysler Group in an effort to expedite delivery of U.S. compliant Smart Cars to consumers. ZAP is still waiting for confirmation that smart GmbH will fulfil the purchase order," it said in a statement.

ZAP, which is completely independent from DaimlerChrysler, said it had placed the order after holding talks with Smart officials "to explore the possibility of working together to fill U.S. demand for the Smart Car."

Loss-making Smart has dropped plans to make a sport utility version of the quirky, snub-nosed urban car that was supposed to be its entry model for the U.S. market.

It has held out prospects of selling the next generation of the Smart in the U.S. market from the second half of 2007.

Comm moderator nazi/creator here.

I'd like to repeat this sort of thing is not tolerated round here. Thanks.
