Our Smart's gone and I'm going to miss it. Not all of us have been smitten, mind you.
But I've enjoyed it. I enjoyed learning how to get the best out of it - that 'box requires some work - and I've enjoyed not taking up any more space on the road than strictly necessary. It's also got those increasingly rare commodities: uniqueness and character.
More than this I've relished having what could well be a glimpse of the future. If you take the view that more of us are going to be using 'mission specific' cars - then the Smart fits the bill.
After all, during the week I rarely need more than a two-seat tiddler to ferry me about. So no it's not perfect, but I can see something like it being a permanent fixture in my house before too long.
