SmartCar invasion begins

If you haven’t seen a SmartCar yet (the one above was on Morris Avenue about a month ago), be prepared to see many more in the coming months and years cruising around town. The car first made an appearance in town last year as part of a cross-country promotional tour. Now, one of the 72 SmartCar dealerships in the country is located in Hoover. They received one of their first car shipments about two weeks ago (I didn’t have a camera – doh). Anyone out there own one of these yet?

A co worker at the Library got one about two weeks ago. Has had it on the interstate and says it is remarkably stable and steady.

I carry one in my trunk for a spare.

If the SmartCar got incredible mileage 65+ I would buy one but 33 city/41 highway isn't enough to make me buy something that small. I am glad that Hoover got a dealership though!
