SmartCars Take Over San Francisco’s Lombard Street

Sunday, August 17th, 2008

It was on this morning at the OFFICIAL 2008 NorCal Region SMART RALLY & Lombard St. Photoshoot in San Francisco. The whole thing was just like critical mass, but for cars instead of bikes.

How many Smart Cars can fit into one block of Lombard Street in scenic Russian Hill? This many, or about a hundred-something as long as you park them six inches apart and side-by-side, as if they are loading onto Noah’s Ark. Kiltbear ably captured the mise-en-scene.

The Obamamobile was there – could this have been an opportunity for Obama to campaign? No matter, look for Smarts all over the Bay Area today.

Proposed Agenda:
-7:00 to 8am staging area (address released to registered smarties)
-8:30 line up at Lombard street
-10:30-11:30am start scenic cruise Fort Point
-12:00am meet and greet (East parking lot of Spinnikers in Sausalito)
-12:01-2:30pm lunch and/or continued meet and greet
-3pm *Optional drive down highway 1
