Kind of funny, but I think it would take less than 8 guys to turn over my defender. Justifiable homicide?

there is a food chain on and off the road. going through life as a minnow is no way to live.

I'll bet it takes more than 8 guys to turn mine over..

Friend posted that same link on Facebook yesterday. One of her friends got pissed. Apparently there is a lot of hate directed toward Smart Cars and their owners. Her friend was saying she'd find nasty letters on the windshield people trying to run her off the road or yelling at her when she'd walk to her car. Personally I think 4 people can flip one over. Anyone want to try?

Only in SF. This is the kind of backlash most SUV owners have been experiencing for years. Now its happening to Techies in northern Ca.

The gasoline Smart cars are not very fuel efficient, so there is little point. The diesel ones had spectacular mileage and made a lot of sense.

Yeah the us requirements effectively ruined it's chances stateside; we don't have 'subcompact' standards so they aren't economical stateside (require larger engines and more safety features to be sold in the USA)

I don't care much at all for Smart cars and Prii but I have the hots for a Tesla and not because it's an earth-friendly car. It's just a bad-ass car.

Its got nothing to do with the car as much as the hate for the techies taking over the city. Just ask the woman that wore her google glasses into a bar.
