Very cute! I'm guessing tall people wouldn't be too comfy though?

Very Cute! I would never make it up my hill in the winter in that, but they are awesome for climes and landscapes that are like yours.

Sue, where's the rest of the car?

Seriously though, I would not have a small car anymore. Go to the personal photos gallery and look at Michael's Accident which I posted in Septemeber of 2006. That was a full sized car that I was in. That is why I won't have a small car.

I did see the pictures. I love the car. It's made from 95% recycled materials and good with gas. I never go far anyway just shopping or church. But today I am going on the highway to go to the airport!

Great car. Everyone should be driving one instead of housewives in Suburbans hogging all the gas. I am constanly amazed by peoples need (ego) for big trucks and SUV's. SO wasteful. (I sell Hondas)

I don't think it's true everyone should drive a smart car. I commute to far to drive a car that small. Because most of my driving is done on the highway at high speeds that car doesn't suit me. No, I don't drive an SUV that is also a bad commute car (gas mileage). I drive a Hyundai Sonata it has a 4 star safety rating in both side and front crash test and decent gas mileage. This is not an ego thing it's a safety thing. If I were mainly driving around town and only once in a while doing highway driving then that car would be a good car for me.

Sonata is Ok. Just as long as you are not driving a Hummer I drive 4 cyl Honda Element because I need something to tow my boat with and sleep in at times. I wouldn't be afraid to drive Smart car on the highway though. Safer than a motorcycle.

I currently drive a 2008 Chevrolet Impala SS with a 327 and 303 fine ponies. It has the cylinder deactivation and gets about 29 on the freeway and 17 in town.

I'm a suv freak for now. Got the Nissan Pathfinder which is going to my son next year and I'm getting the Toyota 4 runner next. NJ has horrible horrible drivers. Accdients left and right everywhere you go. :evil: Many drivers speed and don't pay attention to speed limit signs. I'm also afraid to drive in the snow and ice and feel safer in the suv.

However I do like Sue's car and Love Love Love the color. One day when I get out of NJ for good and move to an area with no snow and ice I would consider getting a car like Sue's. 8)

Good luck with your new car Sue.

Thanks! My beetle was yellow also. I had to keep the color because my grandkids only know me with my yellow beetle. This way they don't have to adjust too much. I just love having grandkids !

I will be glad to help you with that as well. The other two get the better gas mileage though. You will just have to fond some excuse to come to Flroida and pick it up.
