I'm not a big fan of them. One of the lads on my unit at work has one. I always chuckle because he's 6ft 7in and about 16 stone.

His head almost sticks out of the roof! :smile:

They don't look good either. It's nice-- I've been noticing a lot of old cars. MGBs and the like. Heh, someone was driving a red Triumph convertible here in the backwaters. :)

There is no way that you would get me in one of those puddle jumpers.

I remember about 6 years ago when my car was damaged in an accident, and the insurance Co sent me a Ford Ka............I sent it back. :redface:

The Brabus Smart coupe is nice though, its a bit of a mini stealth car though. As its small and black, the lights come on automatically after you have driven 5metres to aid its visibility. I had to follow a friend of a friend who has one through darkest (literally) Surrey one night a few weeks back! Quite easy to lose unless you stay focussed on it. Its little 0.7litre twin turbocharged lawnmower motor produces the same power output as my 1.4litre K series!

That is truly remarkable!!

I still prefer driving something with a bit more substance to it though :dance: Anyway, I'd need two smart cars, one for each foot :lol:

Also, a lovely description of how the door opens and closes there...nice one!
