    My wife bought a passion cabriolet coupe Smart Car for my Birthday without telling me. Have you guy's ever seen an uglier car. Are these things even safe? Do you think it would be wrong to keep driving my SUV?

    Seems like it wouldn't take much to smash that thing up in a wreck.

    That car doesn't look too safe to tell you the truth. However I'd keep it just in case this gas crisis never ends.

    actually they are incredibly safe. i still wouldn't want to go up against a F-350 head-on with it. (i sure hope they go faster than 35 because I got stuck behind one of them the other day. a line of cars passing the so-called smart car on 2-lane highway... everyone was pissed.)

    On the brite side - the car may be ugly but think of it this way... all the girls/women in your neighborhood are going to think you are the sexiest, coolest guy they know. they might even want u to take them for a spin! ;)

    You should learn to accept gifts without complaining :) It's an insult to the giver. Be happy that she cares for you and gave you a gift that she could afford.

    It could go either way...

    People on the block will think you are a total gangster for having the balls to rock a smart car.

    Or...

    I think you can fill this one in...

    man, keep the suv, and just tinker with the smart car as much as you want!

    like a toy, get rims, an exhaust racing tires, a custom paint job and a turbo :p

    itll be fun to roll around in for sure :D:D:D

    and i seem to remember someone posting a drag race between a smart car and a ferrari and the smart car won hahah (hayabusa engine)

    make lemonade from the lemons you've been dealt :)

You will being going to Craft Fairs and Art museums on the weekends. Dude, you have just been conditioned. You need to get your man card back. LOL, Actually, I looked into it as well.

    this is what i dont understand. why does eco friendly mean that cool design has to be sacrificed. most people are all for helping the environment. but lets face it, no one wants to drive around in an ugly car. more people will make the switch when smart cars and electric/hybrids look more like normal cars. these things they are putting out look like toys.

    Okay - here's what shes done.

    She's given you an incentive to get a trade-in for a motorcycle. :)

    Your wife is amazing... first of all she bought you a new car! How many husbands can say that??? Second of all, she cares about the earth! What's wrong with that? Also, yes, I am a woman, but I think the car is incredibly cute. You're a lucky man! :cool:
