1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    The new model Smart ForTwo will have a longer front end to comply with the latest EU pedestrian impact regulations. This will also help get around some US regulations which have caused problems (apparently some minimum distance from front end to wiper stalks etc)


    The public in Europe are somewhat wary of these latest regulations as it is feared the new cars from all manufacturers will look rather ugly in order to comply.


    This will affect a car as small as a ForTwo more than most obviously.

    Here are some spy shots of the new model. Hopefully it will have the same amount of character as the old model.


    i saw a car on the street here in Oakland that looked a lot like that. I don't know if it was the same make though; i didn't get a good look...are there other microcars available here?

    Smart is going to be coming to the USA in a year or so; there have been a number of test/publicity mules roaming around (I saw one FourTwo on I-10).

    For all you car fiends, I am good friends with owner of the Ferrari P 4/5 and we will be going on a drive together in November when he finally has it back home after all its show appearances this fall. I should have some great pics in his shop and on the road...

    This car is insane, Zach. Will he let you drive it?[​IMG]

    They aren't making the Murci anymore. If you are getting it new, it's going to be an LP640 roadster. Yes?

    Would like to see it with the hummers! That would be a good photo
