EDMONTON -- Mac Kennedy figures a Smart Car could just about fit on the roof of his GMC three-quarter-tonne truck.
"Tinker Toy," he said as he joined the Edmonton Motor Show crowd looking over the convertible Smart Fortwo Cabriolet. Kennedy uses his truck to haul a fifth-wheel motorhome south to Florida's warm climes for part of the winter. And while he wouldn't want to make a cross-continental trek in a Smart Car, he can see the advantages of having one once he's reached his destination.
"It would be great for running back and forth to the golf course," he said.
Marie Knipelberg sat behind the wheel and declared the pint-sized convertible "a real little sweetheart."
She admits the Smart Car was one attraction she didn't want to miss at the motor show, which is expected to draw more than 80,000 people to Northlands AgriCom before it ends at 6 p.m. today.
