1988 Called - It Wants Its Car Back

| 1 Comment

So I guess the Smart Fortwo is now available in the US. Two seat micro-car, $12-15K, 33/41 MPG.

I used to drive a Ford Festiva back in the day. I paid about the same for it in constant dollars, got about 32 in the city and about 40 on the highway.

Oh, yeah - 'back in the day' == 1988. Good to see that the auto industry has come so far. Tell me again why they stopped making Festivas (especially given the automotive abortion that replaced it - the Aspire)?

I too had a Festiva. Drive train and vitals were so Mazda, the door lock knobs had the "M" molded in them. Great little car. Good mileage, great fun.
