I’m probably dehydrated and should drink water because I’ve been obsessed with what I’m about to write for a while now...
I think I saw your most recent order on its way to you.
smart Fortwo Pulse
It was requested that I lined up the cars in order by generation. Well, since I was painting my garage literally all weekend, the cars had to sleep outside. I guess now is a better time than any! Also, these are the first pics I’ve taken with my iPhone 8 Plus! :D
I guess smart wanted to give up on the USA/Canada early because of our hilariously low sales. Regardless, it looks like Mercedes-Benz is finally following Nicolas Hayek’s dream of having an EV manufacturer (though is ignoring his other proposition of a hybrid smart). By my estimations then, the current 453 generation…
Basically, these are adventure bikes using a Smart ForTwo’s 800cc turbodiesel triple, through a CVT, hence the Mercedes-bait. (I’m not sure if they can come into the US, though.)
I had both Thursday and Friday off last week so I made sure to fill my extra days with ALL THE ACTIVITIES! I started it off by taking a girl on her first ever date and ended it at a wedding then with my all time bestie. I made some time for my babies though. ;)
The garage is basically finished, I just need to paint the walls then polish the floor. That means that Phil can move in now!
It’s basically an Aston Martin. Now give me more silly colours before you stop selling cars, dammit!

A Mk2 Smart, truly outstanding in its own field.
Last time on State of the Engines, I covered the singular 2-cylinder car... but if you want a 3-cylinder, there’s more options. Most of them are still from BMW, but hey.
So I have a reservation in on a Tesla Model 3 but realize even tho I’m early it’ll be awhile. So I knew I could get a Leaf for under 10k, but wanted something newer (2014), smaller and more towable, etc. If you drove the Leaf vs either of these let me know in the comments.
Had not seen this before and of all places to see it. I guess a Smart would make sense considering the lack of interior space. Maybe they pile the miles on and don’t want to be with out a full size spare when on a road trip. Kinda cool.
My career in being a tech analyst has opened my mind to new ways to observe the world. As a fan of statistics, it plays perfectly into my hobbies. Instead of just reading data, I can compile it and draw fairly accurate conclusions.
smart car trike.
