Pastor Earl Tries Out The Smart Car

Friends Larry Cook and Todd Favre heard I was curious about that itty bitty Smart Car – so they found one and brought it to VBS. It is as tiny as it looks, and accordingly the layout is a bit weird: the 3-banger engine is in the back, you open the hood from the back, the ignition is in the center console, etc.

But I got to drive it, and I have to say it was quite comfortable and roomy inside, with plenty of space above my head. And it was quieter than my Miata, even at 6o mph.  I suspect it won’t last long, but if you’re curious check out Todd’s dealership website here.
