CC Outtake: Three Row Seating, 245″ Total Length – Two Very Different Ways To Do That

Look what showed up this afternoon in front of our neighbor’s house: two of the shortest cars in the land. The Fiat 500 measures 139″, the Smart 106″, for a grand total of 245 inches. So just how long is that, in Curbside Classic terms?

I knew it would take a bit more than a Plain-Jane Caddy to make 245″. But a 1969 Fleetwood 75 hits the mark perfectly. And before you go ragging on the Smart, I did happen to talk to the owner, a young woman who’s had it four years, loves it, has driven it all over the country, and has not had any problems with it. OK; now you can start ragging on the Smart.
