The Smart ForTwo is really a Stupid ForOne
People that drive the Smart ForTwo (which really should be called ForOne medium sized American) here in Arizona are in reality really stupid or just plain suicidal. The car has minimal crumple zone and a hard shell. Where does the energy transfer to when it gets hit by a large SUV like a Yukon Denali or, uhm, lifted F-350 dually pickup truck? Yup, the driver’s body. Well, in case of the lifted truck the Stupid ForOne would be cracked like a nut and the driver in pieces all over the freeway.
On a sidenote: If you do end up getting one of these, the only way to make it manly is to put in a Hayabusa engine to have a go-cart from hell.
