Smart car on Ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1808447639

I saw these in Europe where they were fairly common two years ago. I understand that they may import them to North America soon. This one is obviously a Euro model with a very suspect title. The local dealer couldn't repair it, I'm sure.

Smart cars

We have quite a few of them over here.fuel economy is great,parking is a doddle and I was thinking of getting one as a paperweight.As to actually owning one NO WAY I like my Mercedes to look like a Mercedes.They can boast all the safety features in the world but I wouldn't like to be in a rear ender in one.
They sell them over here as a fashionable sort of car,but I can't see them being much use if your out to impress the women.If your on the pull your not going to get much done in a Smart car,maybe it's Mercedes attempt at birth control!!

I saw them in France... they are really small. Smaller than the Polish Fiat model 126... and I thought you couldn't get any smaller than that

do women prefer to have sex with men who drive big expensive mercedes and shun boys who drive girly cars like the smart car? I would argue that tree-hugger women would be impressed! its not how big it is its how efficiently you use it...

Do they put diesels in these? If they did, I would actually consider it for commuter duty.

Bear - I never thought of that! in fact, even if you could get your leg over it would probably wreck the suspension or roll over. the dual airbags would probably detonate at climax leaving a bit of a mess inside...hey but if you have to go, might as well die in an mb during sex!
