I really am going to be making this a yearly thing, aren’t I?
In a few days I’ll be transferring the title on the fourth smart in my fleet, then in a couple weeks flying out to pick her up! (March 17th)
Laura is a 2005 smart fortwo cabriolet. She is one of the G&K imports from Germany, like Chelsea is!
Unlike Chelsea, she needs much less work. I’ll want to get a couple interior trim pieces and give her a good detailing. Outside of that, she has 50,000 miles and I’ll be her third owner.
Why Laura? Well I’m still keeping with my current nomenclature and choosing a woman I look up to.
In the running this time was: Curie (Marie Curie), Laura (Laura Jane Grace), Laverne (Laverne Cox), and Danica (Danica Roem).
Laura won out...amusingly because once again Miss Tesla (which I’m happy that Miss Honda is okay with us still being friends) mentioned something that made me giggle. This car opens up like Laura does. Ugggh, fine. lol
For those of you not following my adventures, this will be my fourth smart...and I still have the other three (in order by year):
- 2005 smart fortwo passion coupe (First Generation: W450) “Chelsea” (Chelsea Manning) - 24,000 miles.
- 2012 smart fortwo passion coupe (Second Generation: W451) “Tucker” (Preston Tucker) - 143,000 miles
- 2016 smart fortwo Edition #1 (Third Generation: C453) “Phil” (Groundhog Day) - 4,800 miles
This means I’ll have two first generation smarts. I will likely make Laura my summertime daily driver.
