    Parks Smart Car in His Kitchen to Protect It from Hurricane Dorian

    https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a2...ricane-dorian/

    Smart cars are notorious for being able to squeeze into tight parking spaces on crammed metropolitan streets. And up until now, there hadn't been news of anyone trying to finagle one into a kitchen. Patrick Eldridge of Jacksonville, Florida, has done it. He bet his wife he could park the Smart Fortwo in their kitchen to prevent Hurricane Dorian's winds from blowing the 2000-pound car away. Before you ask, the garage was already occupied by his wife's vehicle.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    While you do give up space and comfort with a smart car what you get in return is at best so-sol gas mileage. Oh, it does require premium gasoline. Can't get much smarter than that.

    I think smart cars are perfect for 16-17 year old drivers. They don't go very fast, you can only fit one other person in one, and there is limited damage to other people's cars if they do crash into you as the cars are lighter and can't get going fast for high impact collisions.

    The first time I ever saw a smart car was in Rome, Italy in 2002. To me, it looks like a beach ball tumbling down the road after being hit by a large truck.
