Go!

GearGirl forgot to apply the parking brake to her GearMobile. She’s using her GearStrength to hold it back, but can’t do that much longer, hence the GearGrimace. (It only looks like a GearGrin.)

Q: What is the only force in nature stronger than nuclear attraction?
A: The attraction of a Gearhead to a Smart Car

Bumblebee got a new design. Wouldn’t exactly call it an improvement though. Then again, he is more fuel efficient.

CD’s first “Car/Owner Lookalike contest” was proclaimed to be a success

Having had enough complaints about the unending road construction, Michigan decided to redesign its orange traffic barrels.

News anchor: In this photo; taken mere moments before the tragic accident, we see the victim, Kara Bakowski, before she was hit by the vehicle. The car was driven by actor Verne Troyer who remarked he didn’t see the girl. Witnesses say Kara had darted out into the road to pick up some zip ties.
The car was totaled in the accident, and Kara was sent to the hospital where she spent the night for observation. Remarkably she suffered no injuries. She accredits her luck to the fact that here teams flag shielded her from harm. When asked why she went into the street, she remarked “You can never have too many zip ties.”
On a positive note, Mr. Troyer felt so bad about what happened that he has donated $50,000 to the Gearheads Robotics Team.

You think you’re going to get all your stuff to Michigan Tech in THAT? HA!

What she really wanted was a Segway.

Having just heard about the upcoming FRC Water game, a team member poses with her waterproof cape. The car was unnoticed at the time.

Having lost all her friends due to her FIRST addiction, Kara found another gearhead to hang out with.

<npoe> Kara has lots of friends. I’d bet good money she has more than me. </npoe>

We all know that it’s “like the WWF for smart people”.
smart is as smart does.

Kara may be able to leap tall buildings at a single bound, but she better watch where she lands.

Kara has slowly gotten more and more frustrated by the lack of crosswalks around her school. She finally decided to be proactive. This way, anywhere she crosses is a designated cross walk. No worries of getting ticketed for jaywalking now.

Quick! To the…um…Batmobile?..GUYS WHAT DID YOU DO WITH MY BATMOBILE!!!

Shown here with it’s chief designer, the “SMART-head” mod adds a turbo and nitrous injection. It runs the 1/4 in the low 11’s

And then the cape got caught in the trunk as exited the car. Should’ve listened to Edna.

Kara Bakowski - taking superheroes to a whole new level - putting the smart in cool.

Woodie Flowers would be impressed.

It didn’t matter how fuel efficient (or photogenic) it was, the inspectors just would not pass team 1189’s Minibot.

Her other car is on Mars.
