Many of you all, like me, grew up laughing at Geos. A Geo! we’d say. Ha!
There are a lot of great movie cars. Fast and Furious helped make the Toyota Supra an icon, the Ford Mustang from Bullitt hasn’t left the spotlight since 1968, and Aston Martin is almost synonymous with James Bond for those with casual knowledge of either. But none of those are my favorite. Not even close.
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…
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.
