I thought maybe I would trade the EVO in for something more practical. This is Roger Penske's lastest business adventure. His United Auto Group is signing up Dealers for the 2008 release of the Smart ForTwo. It looks like Keeler has signed up already. They had about 8 of them there today and I went up and drove this orange one. It has a 3 cylinder Mitsubishi engine. The transmisssion is horrible. The shifts are very slow and harsh. The car pauses then lurches between each gear change. The interior is base model Kia quality.
Ironicaly somebody had this DeLorean parked there. Also remember Keeler sold the AM General Hummer also.
In other news The Eckerd changed the sign to Rite Aid yesterday. The old fence place between Pizza Hut and CHP is being torn down and British American is building an office building.

Jeff and I laughed hysterically when we saw those cars yesterday. Regardless of how they drive, they appear to be a deathtrap even if you were to get hit by a bicycle!

Another office building, EXACTLY what we need! How about another DD for good measure?
