Yeah, one of the reasons I like driving a gas guzzler, is to give the eco doom merchants proliferating Europe, the bird.

Careful backing out. You may just suck that thing into the intake. It is small enough, it may fit through the holes in the air filter.

Funny thing about those Smarts, they really aren't that fuel efficient, or even cheap for what they are. A Cruze, or Focus, or Civic, or Mazda3...all of them are much larger cars, don't cost a whole lot more, get better fuel economy on the highway, have twice the power or more, and don't require premium like the Smart.

And they don't come with an "I Love C*ck" bumper sticker.

My Honda Fit is bigger, far more useful, carries 5 in comfort, gets better mileage and is way cheaper

When I'm beside one of these, I like to have a little fun and give them a loud blast of an LS3 exaust note with deleted mufflers.

Yeah, compact coffins such as these are smart because they are less stressful on the environment, due to less dirt needing to be moved.

True, and they save the materials needed to make coffins.

Although the coffin status still applies, you'd be shocked if you ever ran up on this one; a 10 second Smart car.

Nothing smart about a Smart car, especially when you put that amount of extra bank into one.

Dude you drive a V6 Camaro, the basic point of the car is to be the fuel efficient model while still being able to accelerate respectably…

Any sports car that gets 30 MPG, or even close to that, isn't allowed to be called a gas guzzler… Now if you drove a ZL1 or SS then I would agree with you….

No not trolling. In the UK the average engine size is 1.8 litres, with Ford bringing out things like the ecotec Focus with a 1.0 three cylinder engine. So YES over here my car is considered a gas guzzler. I don't know where you heard 30mpg, because I've been averaging 17.5 for the last 18 months.
