    Hello All!

    I captured thing just outside my door today:

    I am not sure what it is. I think this is the only one I've
    seen around my town.

    Any one else familiar with this one?

    Doesn't seem to be much bumper protection. There's too much
    potential to be crumpled up like an accordian in the event of a
    crash. It wouldn't survive the winter roads here (Ontario,
    Canada)

    The owner says that the shocks/suspension are a bit rough.

    Everyone knows Smart ;). I guess they are much more popular in Europe (and Germany as it is a division of Mercedes-
    Benz).

    Hallo Ogg,

    This is a Smart ForTwo 451, the second generation Smart car.
    (I'm driving the convertible variant of the third-generation model,
    the Smart 453)

    Although the Smart cars look fragile, they are quite sturdy because of
    the so-called "Tridion security cell", which is made of high strength
    steel.

    And, although it looks small, it feels quite roomy inside and even
    features some space behind the seats as a trunk.

    It's a shame that Smart doesn't continue the Smart ForTwo but now also
    seems to be on the SUV bandwaggon :-(

    So, I have to keep my Smart running for a looooong time :)

    Regards,
    Anna
