I just joined the forum. I was just about to buy a smart when I found out about the IQ. I am 74 and like small cars. Back in the 80's I had a Ford EXP for 7 years and put 132,000 miles on it before I traded for a Ford Probe. I like cars that aren't your everyday sedan, something that people notice. I'm probably the oldest guy on here, but hopefully you will let me stay.
