Smart Is Trendy

Smart cars, which have bewn ubiquitous on European streets for years, now have a showroom on Venice's trendy Abbot Kinney.
You can even enter sweepstakes to win a Smart if you (re)subscribe to local radio KCRW. The hype Smarts generate, and the increasing number of "alternative" cars on the road, signal a welcome shift from gas-guzzling barges to more sensible modes of transportation. The barges are fighting hard, though, as shown in this ad for Honda's Ridgeline, tagged "Built for the urban wild." Urban wild? Puh-leaze.
