"Get Smart" - The Smart Cars Arrive

After a decade of use in Europe, the Smart Cars have finally arrived in the US.

SmartUSA, the US distributors of the Smart Fortwo, has been heralding the arrival of these little cars for what seems years -- through concert sponsorships, a nationwide tour, and an innovative $99 reservation program. And the cars have finally started to arrive.

SmartUSA claims to have 30,000 pre-reservations for the cars -- suggesting that an interested buyer, walking into a showroom could have as much as a year's wait for delivery of a car. (Assuming that all 30,000 people choose to buy a car, since the program is flexible and allows customers to get refunds with no penalty.)
