Re: I love geo metros Sign In

Don't recall anyone here posting a 'Hate Metro thread.'

If you ask any technician/mechanic/person who works on cars for a living or even one who has a hobby of working on cars ,they'll all tell you something or two that they dislike about any vehicle made.That includes the high end vehicles.
Ask Cadillac technicians after a long day,ask Mercedes Techs after a long day,you'll see what i mean.
Ask a mechanic from an independent shop after a long week of working on a variety of makes...Betcha you hear a few expletives....

As far as a Metro,when they first hit the market ,they were considered a throw away car..used to be called the Bic lighters of the auto industry.
But ,after the last couple years of rising gas prices,the Metros,at least in my market,have made a Comeback ,so to speak.People have started restoring them and/or fixing them up .Some guys i know have picked em up ,repaired them and sold em for profits.
I'll love one of those little B**t**ds if it makes me money!Cash cows...

NJ___Jon; Funny, was just talking to a customer today about them. They have come out of the woodwork in the past year. Didn't know that there were so many left. I've always thought that they'd make great boat anchors, but, the owners are laughing all the way to the bank, now. My cousin bought one new, many years ago, and boasted 54mpg.

Geo Metro's are really fun to drive. The one I used to have had a 3 cyl engine. Very easy to pull the engine and reinstall it.

What the hell, rubber bands are much cheaper than gasoline. Just don't let the school bus back over you.
