Smart Cars are coming to Colorado.
The big corporate people picked a strange location - a kind of run-down section of Englewood on Broadway, next to a bunch of used car dealers.
I love Smart Cars. I have never driven one (unlike my friend John). They are an amazingly small size and yet are safe to drive in the daily battleground that most commuters face. However, they get surprisingly bad fuel economy for such a small vehicle. A Honda Fit 1.2* is much larger and more versatile - and yet gets better miles per the old gallon of fossil fuel. (It's not available in the States but is the same car as the Honda Jazz but a more efficient engine.)
It was great to see a Smart on the cover of the Jan. 18-20 edition of USA Weekend magazine. (That's a Parade-like magazine that is distributed with many national newspapers. Funny enough, Denver gets both that one and Parade.)
*Thanks to Baris for the correction. And that one is the car John & Amy drive!
