May 7th & 8th in South Carolina, come out and see the Cannonball Run & smart project car forfiveone
You are invited to get a behind the scenes look at the Cannonball run, while not a specific smart event, it’s will have the 2008 smart fortwo project car named forfiveone and there will be smart owners and enthusiast in the crowd to see what the smart can do on the track.
One of the great things about coming out to the event is that you will not only get the chance to see the forfiveone project car but you will get to see nearly 100 other exotic race cars and get up close with them and the tracks as with this invite you are able to get in the pits and staging areas, basically you can get everywhere except on the actual track.
The smart will be running in the last group of the day so if you arrive late you will still get the chance to see the smart run. There should a few smart owners out to enjoy this notoriously famous event at each track so introduce yourself to the other at the track.
We got our car in mid February and have been enjoying the heck out of it, ever since. It was the 20th car sold by the Cary smart center and those are some of the best sales persons we have ever dealt with. My wife & I are thinking about how we will order our next one in a couple of years from now, I would like to wait for a diesel model, but as recent press release have stated, diesels aren't planed to be released here. We'll see, things have a way of changing when it comes to smarts...
don't rule out diesels (smart ruled out america for 9 years) we'll get diesels, we'll just have to wait longer! we just have to wait for our politicians to get over their "crainial-rectal" inversion disorder. be patient, plop down another $99... have some fun! i'm now single, i think i'll put another $99 for one myself, no law against owning TWO!!!!
I love my smart car. I have had it for 2 years. I am from Canada so I have the diesel version, I get about 72 miles to the gallon doing 65 miles an hour. I am moving to the Outer Banks for the summer on Sunday so maybe we could have a meet out there, it's probably a bit too far for most of you but it's just a thought.
I received my 451 about mid March 08 in Winston Salem, N.C. It gets a steady 40 mpg in town and 42 on highway. My insurance was $285/ yr. At first I thought it was a little sluggish, but once broken in the compression really tightened up and was no trouble going 75-85 on highway even in the mountains
fyi, recently the engine malfunction light came on on the dash. It seems a pollution control valve is sticking with some of the smarts. the dealership picked me up, replaced it and delivered the car back to me at no charge.
Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) smart Owners' Club Breakfast Meet - Sat Jul 26, 8-10a (or until we're tired of chatting) @ Brier Creek Commons (US-70 & I-540 in Raleigh) in the Camille's Sidewalk Cafe parking lot. "Convoy/parade" opportunity afterwards, for those interested? Delete Comment
Me and my wife just reserved ours last night...might have to wait 14-18 months, but hey, it will be well worth it.
We ordered the Cabriolet in white/black. Cannot wait til we get it.
And I tell ya what, the salesmen at the South Charlotte location, very nice and helpful. Let us know if anyone will be down in Charlotte (or live in the area) so we can get a group going and make it a monthly thing.
