    you would be suprised.
    They dont advertise them as the ones for canada are sold before they get here.

    No- the Smart

    is actually a ford. I cant remember who makes those but when we were in Rome we called um "Flying Doors"


    They were buzzing around everywhere but when 1 would drive by it looked like a car door on wheels. Hell- ya should see um park. I bet they have a turning radius of 12'! I guess ya could park one in your mailbox!
    My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

    Well whatever

    when I was in EU Ford had a car called a Smart. Tiny little bastard but not the flying door. I always figured they be in the USA market too but I've never seen another.
