Wound up & on the road

Now here is something you just don't see every day. On a drive from Dallas to Houston, we spotted this Smart car. Obviously, a complete throw back to my childhood era with the tie-dye paint job. It reminds me of one of my first grade art projects when I made a tie-dye shirt for my dad for Father's Day. We really wore some weird things in the 70s! If you look at the license plate, it says "Wind Up" and has an actual turn key on the back to make it look like a wind up toy. This is, by far, the most clever auto I have seen on the road...that's why they call it a "Smart" car.
