I’m just going to say right up front that while I know what this guy did is wrong, I admire his cheapskate ingenuity, and I think it’s too harsh a penalty to take away his Geo Metro. Here’s the guy’s crime: he rigged a license-plate flipper to avoid paying tolls. In Canada.
Is it possible for a diminutive Pontiac Firefly to support the weight of a tank-treaded Caterpillar D11 bulldozer? Not at all!
Elio Motors is getting closer to turning their "definitive" 2016 model into reality, and here's our first look at what's going to power it: a 0.9 three-cylinder based on the Geo Metro's engine.
I can't imagine you'll ever see anything quite like this again. Somebody is selling a 1991 Geo Metro Convertible on Craiglsist with only 548 miles for the low price of $8000.
The Geo Metro was a car primarily known for its frugality, its cheapness, and its crappiness. But when they first put it on sale, they tried to couch it as the harbinger of a new decade. Oh no.
This is no ordinary Geo Metro. It's a Suzuki Swift built in Hungary. And swift it can be, as long as you add enough November rain to the mixture.
Convertibles. They're expensive! Doesn't that make you mad? Thankfully, Geo has come to the rescue with this, the Metro Convertible. PHEW!
We see more than our fair share of weird cars around these parts, and one might think that familiarity would jade us. Then you see a Geo Metro stretched like a bad furnace repair and your heart goes aflutter.
What's purple, costs less than $500 and has box flares like a Renault 5 Turbo 2? Yes, it's a trick question because you haven't yet seen how this 24 Hours of LeMons racecar went from Geo Metro to SHO-powered sicko.
What did The General need most of all in the late 1980s? You got it, another marque! All those Suzukis and Toyotas being built in California and Ontario needed friendly Detroit-style badging, not to mention those Japan-built Isuzus.
Thanks to 25 MPG fuel economy and a $22K price, the Ford Transit Connect is being sold as an affordable, efficient commercial vehicle. Pshaw. The Metro-amino will get twice the mileage for a tenth of the price.
