2008 Smart Fortwo: Fears No Parking Space
June 09, 2008
Since this weekend had bee-oo-tiful weather, EVERYone was out and about. But fortunately, finding street parking was never an issue since I was driving our 2008 Smart Fortwo around. In fact, I had a lot of fun finding spots that no one else could possibly fit into and cramming the Smart in there. Then I'd stand back and admire my parking job...
Parking by Venice Beach on a gorgeous Saturday morning? A cinch. West Hollywood during the Pride parade? Piece o' cake. That's why I think it's a great around-the-city car. Bad parking jobs by inconsiderate schmucks and areas crowded by events are nonissues.
It's pretty freeing for someone like me, who frequents highly trafficked areas of the city, to not have to worry about where I can park for once. I didn't have to worry about getting to events early or about having to wear my comfortable shoes so I can endure the long walk back and forth from my car to the event. I just rolled in whenever I wanted to in my 5-inch heels. So nice.
