Shortly before falling into a sodium-induced coma after some particularly bad McDonald’s, on Friday afternoon I spotted something small and red zipping down the road. It didn’t have any badges on it, but I knew exactly what it was. It was a Geo Metro convertible. The Metro pulled into the parking lot of Lowe’s, and…
Well, I accidentally went back in time again. I was trying to fish some lint out of the wall outlet with a butter knife and the next thing I knew, I woke up and George H.W. Bush was president. Don’t worry, I’m somewhat sure I’m back in the present now and once my sense of smell comes back, I think I’ll be fine.
In an effort to simplify his life and find adventure, Rick Kretschmer from upstate New York moved west after college, and bought a ridiculous custom Geo Metro camper, which he lived in for over a year. Now the car is for sale because the 24-year-old needs a kitchen in his new home: a 1996 Dodge Ram. So if you need an…
Bring back Geo!
Gordon Murray’s T.25 city car concept seems to be doomed. First, it looked like the pair would see production next year. Then Yamaha made a concept for the Tokyo Auto Show using Murray’s iStream build process. Now, Shell and Geo joined in to “totally re-think” the 2010 car, but still won’t put it into production.
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.
I decided to go in a slightly different route this time as the car in question today is neither a 1-year only special edition nor is it a limited production unicorn. In fact, the Geo Storm can be found relatively easy by CTTF standards. The GSi is by no means common, but with production numbers in the thousands it is…
Welcome to Used Car Face Off, where we find two similar or similarly priced used cars and ask you which one you would buy. Choose wisely!
Perhaps the only thing stranger than dropping a small block Chevy in an relatively unloved mini-SUV is the fact that more than one person has done it.
There's an alchemy to engine swaps of massive big-blocks into the chests of small cars with a minimum of sheet metal alterations. This Corvette-powered Geo Tracker may not turn lead to gold, but it can make rubber smoke.
A Geode is a hollow rock that upon cracking open reveals a crystalline interior. Geo, on the other hand, was GM attempt to crack the small car market. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Metro will save you on gas, but will driving it leave you feeling hollow?
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.
The once-bustling GM-Toyota New United Motors plant, located at the northeastern edge of the area known as Silicon Valley and about 25 miles down the freeway from Chez Murilee, shut down on Friday.
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.
