Smart Car

I was riding into work this morning and happened to pass a Starbucks parking lot with a Smart Car parked in it.  I stopped to take a quick peek and snapped a couple of pictures.  It looks like a cute and practical little car for a commuter or couple.  The best demonstration was when the guy took the car and parked it perpendicular to the curb on the side of the road, try that with a normal car.  If you haven't already seen the video, there is a pretty amazing smart car crash test video posted on You-Tube.  Talking with they guy, they are going to be distributed through Mercedes Benz dealers in the US and will be priced at between $14k and $17k.  My bike still gets better gas mileage, but it is still a pretty cool little car.
