Cute car!

I saw an article in the Wall Street Journal this morning about the new Smart micro car that is headed for our shores from Europe. I remember seeing cars like this when I was in Paris a decade ago, and it's nice to see that they are finally going to be available here. They get more than 40 mpg, cost under $12,000 and are perfect for squeezing into tight parking spaces in New York.

I'm seriously thinking about putting down my $99 to reserve one when they come out in 2008. It would make a great second car to take the burden of everyday driving off Yoshi so he can age more gracefully. Plus they are so cute! I'd get a Passion in red with a black interior.
