Killed by a Smart car!

About two weeks ago I come up to a light, and I punch it like I ALWAYS do ... and a repainted a smart car from a nice blue to a coal black. Well I get where I want in traffic, and let off the go pedal, only to see a little black & blue smart doing the buzzzzz by ... in my minds eye I can hear neeee neeee neeee neeee neeee neeee neeee neeee ...... I was laffin so hard, and I didn't have the heart to crush his little pea pickin heart, so I let him go by .... partially from pity, and partially because I got such a laff from it ....


Another kill though I did put the SMACK down on a Camaro SS with the LS1 350 chevy in it. We both gunned .... and at 90 we were still accelerating, I looked over winked at him ... dumped the rest of the pedal and left him there!


I got tangled up with a Nissan 350Z too. we stretched it up a ways, and it was a pretty dead heat .... He did catch me at 50mph, which is where the hole is in my acceleration. All in all I figured "the Big Girl" did good. I matched the 350 in braking power too. we had to come to an abrupt stop.... She handled it like a champ....

Those Smart cars are a nice idea. I thought about keeping one in the bed of the truck in case I break down somewhere. I could ditch my toolbox and spare tire and just carry around the smart car.

that musta been one tired camero man. seriously.

Built engine, rods, pushrods, cam, springs. Meth, turbo, injectors, fuel system, oil system. 3 disk billet, billet shafts built trans, 6.0 IC, exhaust, intake. Latter bars, gears, system, tint, HIDs. You know the typical stuff to make a 7.3 get out of its own way... dont brake.

i was at a horse show and there was a farm that had a matching f350 dually and smart car. i guess they were trying to offset the fuel cost?

A lady came into my work with one of her friends who had a smart car... When i told her it was small she replied with, "it was built from a f-f-formula 500--indy 500 roll cage, its the safest vehicle you can buy" I didnt know what to say as her studder threw me off balance, but all I could think about it was a smart car vs a peterbuilt in a head on collision and the truck driver saying "what the hell was that?"

I always wonder what a smart car vs a cc dually in a 60mph head on would do. I don't get it, how in the world can these things be safe?
