Default Smart Car vs Dodge RAM

It was hard to miss this scene, I parked my truck besides a Smart Car.

I have on clunclission about smart cars:. Those cars are a joke. They are not safe at all.

What is our opinion???

Oh my and it just had to be a silver Smart, too lol! I agree, though, don't care if it gets 100 miles to the gallon, seems smarter, to me, to not want to be crushed like a sardine but I would have had to take a pic of that, too!

Great gas mileage in a Smart Car but when you need 3 cars to drive the family around, Combined my RAM still gets better mileage per gallon to 3 cars. lol.

PLUS I HAVE SEEN SMART CARS WITH " TRAILERS BEHIND THEM " trailer the same size as the car because you cant put nothing in the back.

The Smart car, or Golf Cart XL as I call it, is a nice little car in theory but not when compared to the larger size vehicles we drive in the US. There is no way in hell I would trust that car in an accident, your legs are the crumple zone.

LOL. Definitely agree they are not safe. Big trucks are the safest out there, I don't care what a crash rating says.

Year's ago my dad's neighbor bought a very expensive volvo for his daughter and said he bought it because it was the safest car on the road. Another neighbor bough a very cheap used Ford explorer for his son. They both were in nasty collisions at some point afterward and guess which person was not hurt? both were T-bone collisions.

The picture above says it all...

You'd be surprised, there are a few companies that tune Smart cars. You can also check out youtube for ones that have Hyabusa motor swaps.
