I got up early this morning and put on my airbrushed t-shirt. Friend-With-a-Smart-Car picked me up at 7:00 am and we headed north to Indianapolis for one purpose: the Smart Car Caravan/Rally/Speedway/Tailgating Party.
We met at the Smart Car dealership and lined up with hundreds of other Smarts. People came from all over the country for the event, so we definitely did not win the "Traveled the farthest to get here" Award. That went to some Canadians I think.
As you might expect, there were lots of tiny treats. Miniature bottles of water and doughnut holes (munchkins). And, of course, Smarties.
We had police escorts and got to drive through red lights like funerals do, all the while confusing the morning commuters.
-the pace car taking the wrong exit and leading the caravan a-stray.
-Three of us figuring out the mistake and U-turning on the Interstate to head towards the Speedway.
-Two Smarts on the side of the highway in a wee little fender-bender, their owners laughingt about it merrily.
-us ending up in front of the Pace car at the turn into the Speedway, and letting him get in front of us
- lining up next to a caravan of Corvettes and playing AC/DC really loudly
- three words: spontaneous dance party!
- sitting in the Pace Car corvette ... it was purple!
- driving around that ENORMOUS track with a few hundred other Smart Cars
