    Sitting in one of these may be about as close as you'll get to someone on a first date.

    It's not too late if you're still looking for a Valentine's Day date. The Chicago Auto Show is offering singles a chance to get up close and personal -- literally.

    On Saturday between 2 – 7 p.m. a series of speed dating events will be held at the smart USA exhibit in the South Hall of McCormick Place.

    But here's the twist -- the six-minute dates will take place inside a smart fortwo car. At just 106 inches long and 61 inches wide, this may be about as close as you'll get to someone on a first date.

    Four smart fortwo vehicles will be dates going on simultaneously in each. On cue, the participants will change vehicles and move on to the next date until each female has met each male.

    All participants will be entered in a drawing to win dinner at NoMI and use of a smart fortwo for a night on the town.

    Singles are asked to register at www.dateanddash.com.
