We’ve featured several interesting Geo Metros over the years, including a Harley-Davidson powered Geo, a 39 Chevy Metro, a Geo-Camino, a GeoBox, a RWD LS Powered Metro, a Half-Baked Metro, and finally the General Wee. However, we’ve never featured a Geo where you could drive from the rear seat. Yeah. A Mini-Metro. A Geo-Whizz. Find […]
Driving a 3-cylinder Geo is like embracing frugality on wheels. The simplicity of its features challenges your preconceptions of a car, and there’s a certain liberating, almost Tibetan monk-like, freedom in living with less. However, this sense of contentment fades quickly during extended trips or when you crave swift acceleration. The constant drone of the […]
The last feature was a sweet white hatchback with a forced induction engine and a billion miles on the odometer…so what’s the logical thing to follow it? How about a 3-cylinder powered hatch with a meaningless XFi designation on the side and only 69k miles on the odo offered for cheap. Find this 1992 Geo […]
This next car comes from tipper ME (and Cory) who describes it simply as “speechless.” That is one way to describe it, but interesting is that the seller doesn’t say much about it in the description either. The only explanation is a vintage 93 newspaper clipping that explains some of the reasons behind hacking the […]
The next car came across the DT tips hotline and I almost immediately discounted it as yet another minty clean early 90s Geo Metro, but upon closer look this thing is a Pontiac. Yup, you could get the Geo Metro badged as a Pontiac Firefly in Canada for a few years and this one has […]
You know what they say about Wisconsin. Everything is bigger in Wisconsin…wait, that’s not right. Wisconsin, first to flight. No…still not correct. Wisconsin, Ditas Deus. No…still not it. You might think it has something to do with dairy products…but the Wisconsin state motto is: LS Omnia, which is, of course, Latin for LS All Things. […]
We continue our countdown of 12 econoboxes from this vintage Car and Driver comparison article. The twelve sub $10k (when new) cars were ranked by an assortment of college kids, and this next one is number 8. It is the dreaded Geo Metro, which aside from being the 2nd best platform for building a 24 […]
We love all kinds of cars on Daily Turismo. Old cars. New cars. El Caminos. El Caminoized things. But the purpose that binds them all together like Sauron’s ring is the price-to-value ratio. And this next car comes with a pretty high price tag for a Geo Metro…absolutely…but it is the nicest three-cylinder powered piece of junk you’ll ever see, and perhaps it does answer the age old question; Can you polish a Geo? Find this 1991 Geo Metro Convertible offered for $6,500 in Phoenix, AZ via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
This next Loony Labor Day feature is a classic combination of econobox utility and actual box shaped boxiness. It offers a promise of utility combined with practicality that can only be offered by a custom built in the back rooms of America’s car customization scene. This isn’t a factory built custom or even a Pimp My Ride classic…this is something built like a pair of Levis ripped in a roller skating accident or a screwdriver with a busted tip to form a perfect awl for poking things. It was no accident that this was created by accident. Find this 1989 Geo Metro Box Truck offered for $4,500 in Hayward, CA via craigslist.
This next car comes as a tip from Matt C who writes: If I needed to say something nice about it, I’d say that it succeeds much better than attempting to make a 1957 Chevy out of a 2002 Camaro. And it is probably considerably more exciting to drive then when (a small portion of) it […]
