Smart Car Open House on Abbot Kinney – Oct. 13

Smart House

Smart, (aka. smart car), has opened a location on Abbot Kinney. I noticed its blue glowing building last night, and this morning I found a catchy invitation (with attached gimmick, a key) placed under my windshield wiper. (Normally my car is in the garage at night – luckily, not last night!)

Smart House

The Open House is this Saturday, October 13th from 11am-5pm. They promise coffee, conversation and perhaps a test drive.

They will remain open until January 2008, hours will be Tuesday-Sunday 11am-9pm.

I test drove the Smart Fortwo a few months ago. It was pretty fun! Quiet, smooth ride…I wouldn’t say it was “peppy” but it does reach 95mph. Eventually. It is surprisingly roomy inside, too. And for anyone who thinks that such a tiny car is a death-trap, you should know that it is chock full of innovative safety features.

The Smart Car would definitely be great for bopping around Venice. It’s tiny (easy parking.) It’s inexpensive (compared to other new cars). And it gets great gas mileage (40mpg.)
