I spotted this little, red Smart Car in Venice Beach, CA while on a day trip with friends/family. It was begging to be photographed…so I did. I am such a huge fan of these little, environmental friendly, gas efficient cars!

    aaaaah these cars! perfect for single fellas like me… except because they’re so puny I feel like I’d get laughed out of any American city if I ever drove one (except maybe New York City where it helps to have a car that fits in tiny-ass parking spots)!

    can’t wait til that Honda Fuel-Cell car comes out… new technology is always cool!

    love the effect on this photo, by the way! I feel like I’m looking through the viewfinder of one of those old school, 1960’s type cameras…

    I got one last year. The best car I have ever owned!

    Comfortable? OMFG YES – heated leather seats!

    Spacious? I am 120kg 6feet 2inches tall and it is more comfortable and spacious than the family sedan I used to drive.

    Fast? (Its really zippy – it will do 120kph), and park it anywhere you would park a motorbike.

    My monthly fuel bill is 1/4 what I was paying before (and I am driving more than did with my old car)

    But best of all – it is soooo much fun to drive!
