  I remember reading that.  Also they did an impact test between the SMART
and some 4door luxury sedan.  The smart doesn't have crumplezones.
Instead it has a full steel rollcage or such.  In the impact the sedan
crumpled and the smart bounced like a ping-pong ball, but the passengers
came out just fine.  That is how the car was supposed to react.



Thus spake Christopher R. Curzio (ale at accipiter.org):

&gt; &gt; I've been looking at them when they show up on eBay, and my question is
&gt; &gt; what  would it take to get them licensed in the US if I bought one
&gt; &gt; there?

&gt; &gt; &gt; I so wish the smart would come to the US.. They're becoming kinda
&gt; &gt; &gt; popular in Canada. Neat little buggers, and suprisingly roomy.
