    Went for a ride today and stopped at Knauz auto park in lake forest. I thought this would make for some fun pictures.

    Great Photos!

    Those Smart Cars are just sitting there waiting for the price of gas to rise!

    Clubford00, the bike looks great. Can't wait to see the Winter Mods!

    Chrome is more aero than paint you will go faster and burn less fuel.

    Andy, We don't disagree often but I would like to say the Smart Car is a POS. Whya would you buy that when you can get a Mini with with seats, more storage and BETTER gas mileage.
    What would you rather have?

    +1 on the "Smart" car being a POS! We have repaired 2 of them with collision damage and you really have to drive one of these glorified go karts to know what a real POS is. The wheels are held on with only 3 lugs for starters and my lawn mower has more power than the poor excuse for a motor. The "hood" is a piece of plastic held on with like velcro and the tranny takes about what seems like 10 minutes to shift!

    The scary part is it gets 32 mpg and the Mini(depending on model) gets up to 38 mpg.

    I haven't driven a Smart Car and don't think I'd buy one. I think they will sit in the Dealer's lots until gas hits $4 per gallon. I've driven a Mini Cooper and they are fun!
