How to park a car in Manhattan for five days

Monday Tuesday Wednesday
Friday Saturday
Oh, yeah-- Saturday I took all this
stuff to storage in the Smart Car.

People make fun of them, but Smarts get into impossible on-street parking spaces. The photos above show parking spaces
that just don't exist for most motor vehicles.
It takes about $100 a month of premium fuel for about 800 miles, getting over 40 miles per gallon.
The dealership plays a loop of crash videos. And Smart USA
doesn't bother to advertise, since fuel-efficient cars are
easy to sell. Gas hogs have to be advertised heavily.

You can't take it off road or carry a lawnmower in the hatch.
But 60% of Americans live in cities, and the Smart is
a great city car for a couple without kids.
My car is two inches shorter than my bike!
