Smart (car) talk

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

This article was published February 4, 2013 at 11:03 a.m.

Joe Roitz has 56,000 reasons to love his Smart Car — all those miles in three years of driving a car so dinky it looks like somebody should tell him he lost the back two-thirds, Ron Wolfe writes in Tuesday’s Style section.

Roitz, 51, has heard every possible joke and insult to his choice of vehicle, and says he doesn’t mind a bit.

The luggage space behind the car’s two seats looks like it might be hard to wedge in a toothbrush, let alone a suitcase.

But Roitz swears the compartment is just right for a week’s groceries. And more: “I’m a drummer, and I can get my bass in here, and a snare.”
