John here, writing from beautiful Poland, which is in Europe. I'm only posting this because I'm so in love with the discontinued Smart forFour, which is the successor to the forTwo—the Smart two seater. Apparently the forTwo will soon be available in the US and I'm really looking forward to test driving one, weaving in and out among the SUVs like a pre-death-of-the-dinosaurs rodent.
No hard news, but it looks like Mercedes will try to sell Smarts for a little under $15,000 and that it should be available next month. Sure, it looks small and dangerous, but it's surprisingly refreshing.
