Little bitty cars go beep, beep, beep

It's a sight that is becoming more and more common — the "smart fortwo car." The car is 8.8-feet long, 5.1-feet high, and 5.1 feet wide. In fact, two smart cars will fit in an average parking space. Holding 8.7 gallons of gasoline, the car is designed to achieve 33 city/41 highway mpg. Its top speed is 90 mph. Pictured out for a spin in the innovative vehicle are Tina McCombs and her father, J.R. Ashmore.
