A Smart Car

While surfing online, I saw this car called smart fortwo. I actually first saw it in LA parked in one side of the road and had been a "head turner" :). It looks like a toy car, almost as big as the bump car they use in amusement park! LOL! But seriously, this is now being released here in the US and had just arrived in the country last January of 2008.
It became the "it" car not only in Europe but worldwide and has become more than just fuel efficient transportation. Of course, obviously with the gas soaring up high and now with a $4/galloon, who wouldn't think of considering buying a car as small as that!

Did you know that this car achieved the highest ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety both for front and side crashworthiness?

Smart is a vital member of Mercedez-Benz cars, - a Daimer AG Company.

I am curious to see this up close. If you are not fond of carrying much stuff, then perhaps it's an ideal one don' you think? A regular shopper should be fine. I love petite cars.
