I am 16 years old, and for the last three years I have been working on a 1984 Dodge Ramchargger. I’ve been driving my Dads 1996 GMC Jimmy while the construction has been going on. As of last week, I realized that almost my entire pay check was going into gas money to drive the little SUV, and I thought to myself, gee the Ramchargger isn’t going to be much better than this. Jokingly I said to a friend I’m going to buy a Geo Metro. He turned to me and said, well Ill sell you one, honestly I had never seriously though about buying a Geo Metro until I researched them and found out how awesome these little cars can be. I’ve found countless pages of performance upgrades so I’m quite confident I can make this little Geo eat the ricer’s at my high school for breakfast.
My first car was a Geo convertible and I loved it. My dad got it for me when I was 16. It only had two seats so he thought it was perfect. It only lasted me a year because the bottom rusted out being in NH with all the snow and there was no way to repair it (we tried). I would love to get my hands on another one of these cars, it was a great little car.
Hi, I purchased a '92 Yellow Geo Metro Convertible in 1995 for $5K. Drive in only in the summer. It doesn't have a bit of rust on it. I removed all the Geo emblems, put chrome 13" rims, a nose bra and a spoiler, (some write, if you put a spoiler on a Geo Metro, it may look like a shopping cart).
I now have 112K miles on it and it purrs like a kitten. I live in The Twin Cities and drive to visit our son in St. Louis MO, many times. I still get 40-45 mph. I was offered $6K and turned it down. The 5 speed is really fun to drive.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I'm 71 years old. I love it when people stop and ask me, "Is that an expensive car?" My canned answer is "Expensive is all relative"
