Smart Car, Day 110



We pulled into a gas station next to this car. I had to get a pic as these cars just fascinate me. As I began to lift my camera, and our car moved forward, the driver of the Smart Car looked back at me - I was sunk - I couldn't very well point my camera straight at her while she was looking back at me. I was bummed. But then she got out to use the restroom. If you look in the background, you'll see her going in! I lucked out and got my picture. These cars get something like 69 miles to the gallon on the highway. Pretty impressive, I think.

We were browsing a car dealership yesterday afternoon and saw several of these cars on the lot, and five in the showroom had sold signs on them.

I think I've seen one around our town. They sure are small. I'd be uneasy on the highway around the semi-trucks in one of those!
