Just an amusing picture, Ricky.

It's a joke sent to me by a customer.

Honestly, those "Smart" cars scare me. I was in my H2 the other day and there was one next to me at a light. I couldn't even see it out my passenger side window.

Don't knock the smart until you have driven one. They are an amazing little car. Mine pushes the 28' AS quite well.

Had one zoom past me on I-10 the other day - must have been doing 80.


Not exactly a "smart" thing to do.

Not knocking the at all... I just hope I see them when making a lane change. I think I could roll right over the top of one without too much trouble.

I feel that way about most cars in my E150 van. Thank goodness for wide angle mirrors!

Truck drivers feel that way about just about everything on the highway.

They are making trailers for Smart Cars. I think their tow capacity is only 500 lbs. Here's the real thing. Maybe they could round round off some of the corners and paint it silver.
