I Spy: FJ, Fortwo, and S-Class!

A big I Spy update! Why do you care what cars I've seen on the roads? I don't know. I just like to write about it.

So I caught a black FJ Cruiser in Shoreline today. On the road it really looks nice... better in person than in pictures!

I've also been seeing a lot of 2007 S-Classes on the road. I don't know how long these cars have been out, but I just call 'em like I see 'em. They look real nice too!

And then today Jennifer and I dropped by our local Smart dealer. Well, kind of... they are Smart Fortwos that have been imported and modified to be street legal in (most of) America. They actually look nicer than I thought they would. In fairness, normally I don't mention cars unless I see them on the actual road. (I've seen FJs at the Toyota dealer for a while now, for example.) But I have a hard time believing anyone will spend $26-28K for one of these cars. Yes, they get good gas mileage... 40MPG or so. Yes, they're easy to park. Yes, they're cute. But a Prius isn't exactly giant, it gets even better gas mileage, and it's probably a lot safer in a wreck. (Plus it's cheaper.) And hybrids are cool these days.
