Smart Car or Clown Car?

20 Jun

Vroom! Vroom!   I’ve been seeing more and more of these odd ducks around town lately.  Do you think these cars are smart or clownish?

Barbs Blast

Low "T?"

How much does size matter?  Does this automobile say Macho Power Wheels or “little tikes?”

Eat my dust!

I fear the Smart car makes the popular Prius look like a big, dumb, politically incorrect guzzler of fuel.  And “smartypants” does not even seem to qualify as a “family car” for little people.

According to – “the Smart Car began with Nicolas Hayek, the man who invented Swatch watches. He wanted to make a small car that would be fuel efficient, environmentally responsible and easy to park in small spaces. ”

Small spaces like the bike rack on the sidewalk?

Yes, the Smart Car is environmentally green, but it screams “itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini!”

Do some (insensitive cads, no doubt) consider such a vehicle to be a “chick” car?  And by chick, I mean “a newly hatched domestic fowl.” Admittedly, the car does have ample leg and seat space for a couple of spring chickens.

Style over substance?  Substance over style?

A Porsche Carrera or a Cadillac Escalade speaks volumes. Usually it’s “Hey, babe. I’m a sex God/Goddess of substance and high ego maintenance costs.”

Physics of Clown Car

You don’t have to be a rocket surgeon to dig this scientific gem:  Physics of Clown Cars:

I know you are dying to know how the clown car trick is done – the answer to that mind boggling mystery of life is here:

In my book, the clown car is the only genuine smart car!

    The “clown car” looks suspiciously like an old VW Beetle . . . but they were good economical buggies. These new econo. “smart cars” are much more popular in
    Europe where the gas is sold by the LITER, currently adding up to about $9.00 per gallon
    translated from Euros. They are very practical in the old towns with the narrow streets and
    where there is hardly any parking space. It is legal to park by straddling the curb with half
    of the car on the sidewalk. Drivers take full advantage of this and also the very short spaces where no regular mid sized car could squeeze in!
