    Well I went and test drove it today. I have to admit, there is a LOT more room in those things than I thought. I'm not a small dude and it felt very spacious. The thing was really fun to drive too. Not sure we can make a deal on this one though, we'll see.

    Be aware these things do have some specific unique items that are more expensive than they should be for a golf cart sized car. The tires for instance are special sizes and relatively expensive for the size.

    That's funny, I didn't know that and actually looked at the tires and thought to myself "what could those things cost, $20 bucks?" The thing I like about this one is it has a transferable warranty.

    Also there is no spare tire, and the front and rear wheel and tire sizes are different.

    Thats good. Just be aware, the Smart car is really the only oddball like that. I believe the Scion IQ is similar as well. It is the same size as a smart, but I believe uses regular tires and wheels.

    Mid life. At 50? Are you going to live to 100? Odds are against it.

    Grads has had some cool rides. Like the caddy. I figured he would want a 68 to 72 Corvette. Maybe even bigger block, 4 speed.

    But a smart car? He could DIE in it.
    So much for the best 10 minute moderator ever.

    Good luck on 100 years old if you get a smart car , grads.

    So much to respond to... I hope to live to be 100, my family usually lives way into their 90's but with my lifestyle it probably won't happen. Funny you say a 68 to 72 Corvette because those have definitely been on my radar. Still love my Caddy.
    Am I scared as fuck to drive a Smart Car?....hell yes! But I seriously look at it like a golf cart and I wouldn't drive it anywhere I wouldn't drive a golf cart. I doubt I would even put 250 miles on the Smart Car a year.

    Also, I've had some really nice cars in my lifetime...I have no one to impress at this point. I just want to have fun.

    I feel like a had to put a tire on mine at one point, and it was nothing crazy. I had the Brabus wheels, the tire was a little larger, so maybe not so much an oddball? As far as the spare, there is air pump and fix kit under the passenger floorboard. If your going to use as a golf cart, you'll be happy with it. That was our main reason. We drove and parked ours anywhere the other carts went/parked inside the neighborhood. When I took it out though, I did try to stay on back roads. It was great having the AC/heat as FL is of course hot in the summer, and the Panhandle gets cold in winter. Go for the convertible though. The door frame at the top detaches and goes into a storage area in the back, and really opens it up. The top is power. It really does have a surprising amount of room inside. You don't realize there is basically nothing behind the seat when driving it.

    It's certainly emasculating at times, but we had fun with it. Always got a lot of smiles from others driving it around.....especially when we strapped paddleboards to the roof and took it to the beach.

    They also make lift kits, and swing up doors for them Grads. Checkout Smart Madness website.

    I never thought of adding a paddleboard rack! My SUP is 12'6" and the car is only 8' long.:eek::D I wonder if I strapped the board sideways if it would act as a wing...LOL:D

    Does her not allowing you to have a midlife crisis pose a problem for you?
