During this summer's Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit, It seemed like Smart ForTwos
were almost as prevalent as Camaros
. However it also seemed like most of the tiny two-seaters were primarily there as rolling billboards. The cars were covered in vinyl wraps for everything from local flower-shops and coffee shops to fitness centers. Let's not forget that the more traditional cruisers - like Corvettes, Vipers
- have long been considered by many as substitutes for the physical inadequacies of certain male drivers. With fuel prices still near record highs, it's inevitable that many drivers of such cars have had to park them instead of driving. With the Smart rolling billboard for Claviné in New York City it all seems to come full circle, with the micro-car shilling for an alternative enhancement product.
