This Red Car is Green

Today, the Bridger Mountain Pony Car Club held its 2009 Show-n-Shine car show, and I entered my smart car in the green/hybrid category.


The smart car took first place (a green trophy) in the category! Woo hoo!

My smart car gets 42 mpg, uses 100% recyclable synthetics for things like the dashboards and wheel housing covers, and has fewer components (for instance, the dashboard air system was reduced from twenty separate pieces to one single molded part).

The smart shared the category with a Ford Escape hybrid, as well as two solar bugs, made locally in Bozeman, Montana by Steve Titus. They're battery- and solar-driven; amazing! Steve says he runs his solar-powered car on a dollar a week!
