I have been horribly remiss in my duties! After Halloween, I took some time to carefully wash and detail my smart car. I took pictures and made detailed account of the process and everything. I was just about to post all this in a “clean up your car before winter!” article, then Thanksgiving hit. Then […]
Hi, I'm Rachel Nabors, and these are my real-life adventures with my new smart car, Roxi.
Normally I’m not into football, but now if anyone asks if I have a favorite player, I will answer affirmatively that Danny Clark and I are united by our smart cars!
It’s a smart car Halloween! I’ve kitted Roxi out with a pair of devil horns and a tail, and we’re up to mischief. Plus, learn how to make your own feather wreath and join us for some Halloween treats!
I never wanted heated seats. They seemed so extravagant. But I got stuck with them when I bought my smart car. Little did I realize how much I would come to depend on the “butt warmer” in the fall.
I used to hate driving in the rain in my old Ford station wagon with her less than effective brakes. But now that I have a smart car, will I feel safe enough to sit back and enjoy the weather? Roxi the smart car shows the power of her braking system!
One of the first things I did when I bought Roxi was I meticulously went about burning music to play in my new smart car, creating the best driving soundtrack I could to embody the joys of riding in my first car. I’ve been wanting to share these songs with other drivers for some time now, but I didn’t want to post MP3s for download. Then I found out about a site called Grooveshark which lets me create, save and embed playlists. At last I can share the Ultimate smart car Driving Soundtrack! Enjoy!
I’ll be honest. I don’t like iphones. Or Macs. Or even Helvetica (mostly because it’s overused in logos and branding). Here is why I feel this way: People automatically assume that because I am a designer, I must be a Mac user. I have had very unpleasant interactions with designers who held that one could […]
A circulating picture of a “smart car crash” with two trucks turns out to be a fake, a hoax, and at the very least, not a smart car!
The weather had been quite stormy all last week, with wind and rain. The wind never tried to blow my smart car around like it did on 540 the other day. I think that must have been an exceptionally ferocious wind that day. But I haven’t had problems handling her in the wind since. On […]
I had to drive my smart car home on interstate 540 yesterday, and the winds kicked up quite a bit. I don’t know their speeds, but they certainly weren’t extreme. Enough to make the trees wave, but I don’t imagine they were anything as bad as what we used to get in the mountains during […]
