Arizonan gets smart

Camped at Flagstaff KOA among the ponderosa pine trees. The smart car drew a lot of attentioin as usual. One camper tipped us off that she had read an article in the Arizona Republic newspaper recently about an Arizonan owning a smart car.

See the complete article here: July 13 Arizona Republic

"After abortive efforts by DaimlerChrysler to import the car, ZAP stepped in last year with plans to bring the ForTwo up to U.S. standards. That involves such things as adding front-seat airbags, changing headlights and electronic components, and other modifications. When ZAP is finished, they meet the U.S. safety and pollution standards. "

After a specatularly scenic drive throught Sedona, Cottonwood and Jerome we are resting up at the Holiday Inn Express in Prescott, Arizona.
