    Re: Smart Car accident

    wow....


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    They should rebadge these cars as Darwin's Cars.

    I always thought those things were coffins on wheels, I guess that proves it.

    Re: Smart Car accident

    They actually aren't as bad in accidents as people assume. Photos like these just further that stereotype. You can find bad car wreck photos of every type of car I'm sure.

    Re: Smart Car accident

    In case you were wondering the break even point for a SmartCar to offset for the carbon footprint of the average funeral is 12 months. 24 if you have over 10 relatives that travel more than 500 miles to attend.

    Re: Smart Car accident

    The fact that there are two really small blue squares hiding the body makes me think there wasnt much to bag. What a horrible way to go, hopefully it was quick and painless.

    The first car isn't a Smart Car either.

    Re: Smart Car accident

    This is just my opinion. I think the smart car is the dumbest car ever. They cost as much as a nice Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla but only get slightly better mileage. Why anyone would buy one is beyond me, but I suspect it is just for the "look what I got" aspect.
