At last, the Smart car is here. Driving home the other day, I passed the exclusive Oregon dealer and stopped in for a test drive. The convertible is high on my list of desires. However, at a $29,000 tag is is low on my likely-to-buy list.
But the car has an engine as small as a motorcycle and emits little, and goes 60 MPG. So it is a green alternative to most of what is out there.
Now here is something impressive: if you buy a green home built by Randy Sebastian of Renaissance Homes, a Smart car comes with it.
