Man, you get in wreck in one of those, you can forget about it!


Even if you hit a fire hydrant, you're talking jaws of life!


Peace

You talking about those Smart Cars? Someone told me that they're supprisingly roomy inside. I laughed in their face.

Yeah, I've seen a few of them around here. They're ridiculous.


I wouldn't want to look like a dork driving one of them. Plus that whole accident thing.

Yeah, the pink one with some website name on it. Exposure ain't free.


Imagine hitting a deer in that thing.


Just thinking about it cracks me up.

Makes you wonder how many clowns are going to pile out of them. They aren't giving them away either. Seen a Mercedes yesterday that wasn't too for from it, I mean this thing looked like a Geo Metro or something. Couldn't imaging writing the check for that.

Here's a video of a test crash.

Notice that even though the passengers would have been dead, the doors open easily.

I only saw the beginning of the crash video where they ram the little car into a mid size sedan. I agree the windscreen amazingly remains intact but I can't help but notice the sedan is occupying the driver's legs space at the same time the driver's legs would be. Seat belt tensioners and air bags are only good for the upper body. I saw enough and clicked off.

Round these parts, Smart car tipping has replaced cow tipping.

A guy I work with has a convertible one, it's actually kind of cute. A death trap, but a cute one.

You couldn't pay me to drive that thing.

I call it the Not-so-Smart Car.

I know someone who has one of these, And let me say ( with me being 6'1" and 300 lbs) there really is a good deal of room inside of them. Still not sure i would want one. other than the good fuel millage.

I call those "TUNA CAN CARS"...They feel about as safe as riding around in a tuna can.

The third generation 2008-present smart fortwo. Little, nimble hotness.

I've seen those around. They are just a sexed-up rollerskate.

It is a new invention: a car that you get in a wreck with and they burry you in it.

These things drive around London like a plague of locusts, as I'm 6'5" I've kind of ruled them out as a mode of transport.

I remember reading that the handling was pretty awful and they're quite easy to turn over in fast corners (not that handling matters when you live in a city where the average speed is 12mph)
