  1. Club Logo Sticky Thread Sticky: Photo issues on our Forum (and across the internet)

    For years Photobucket has been a great place to host photos to then embed into forums like ours. However, this has changed, and to be able to do this from Photobucket you now need to pay a $399 yearly fee. So, we're afraid you'll be seeing plenty of this 4265 from now on :angry::angry::angry:

  2. Documentaries about smart from The Open University

    Browsing Youtube and stumbled across a 4 part documentary about the smart brand, its origins, the system partners and dealer network. Those familiar with the Hambach trips of the past will recognise a few names and faces. I don't recall ever seeing these. It looks to have been produced in 2000...

  3. Smart SUV

    Got to say that I do like the new images of the forthcoming electric Smart SUV's built in China by Geely/Daimler. Might be life left in Smart yet.
