I am thrilled each time I see another Smart car on the road here in Chicago. I really think the American car companies need to take a look at these cool cars for some inspiration. One would hope the last 20+ years of monstrously over-sized gas guzzling vehicles are coming to an end. Gas is $4.49 in my neighborhood today and they say it is still going up until September. With options like some of these cute vehicles at the Micro Car Museum I bet more people would downsize.
