The smart people at Smart somehow settled on the word "passion" when they named the featured car. Kind of a strange name for a car with no back seat, don't you think? If you are passionate about parking spots, however, I suppose this name is very appropriate. Find this 2009 Smart Passion Convertible for sale in Omaha, NE for $5,900 via craigslist. This

enjoy the ride!
With 70 hp and a 0-60 time around 14 seconds, this car is not for passionate drivers, either. Now, if you find a way to insert a Hayabusa mill in the rear of this thing, you might just have yourself a diminutive sleeper. Besides parking, you could also drop the top and drive this car directly onto some golf courses without getting thrown off.
