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 […]
I’ve always lamented the lack of belt-drive automobiles from major manufacturers, but the bigger crime is the lack of V-twin power. You can get cars with miserable 3-cylinders or all manner of 4-bangers, but V-twins are only available in motorcycles…until now. Find this 1991 Geo Metro with Harley Power offered for $3,200 here on eBay buy-it-now or make-offer […]
The Geo Metro was the product of a joint venture between GM and Suzuki from back in the 1990s. It wasn’t the worst car ever built (cough cough L31 Nissan Altima…) but driving one isn’t a good experience unless you are an automotive masochist (ahem…cough Kaibeezy…cough) so this next one has been modified to make […]
The Suzuki Swift/Geo Metro/Chevy Metro/Pontiac Firefly (sold from 1988-1999) was a subcompact hatchbox from General Motors with powertrain developed by Suzuki and the build quality of toy from the 99 cent store. The Swift wasn’t swift in the least bit, but it was available with a 5 speed manual transmission, fully independent suspension and a […]
In high school, the Geo Metro was voted least likely car to be modified. Today’s Canadian spec Chevy Sprint convertible wears a 1990’s shade of teal that has long since disappeared from automakers color charts. The graphics on the rear quarter panel and door are reminiscent of the “Jazz” design on the Dixie cup from […]
The Geo Metro isn’t the skinny kid who got beat up in school — it is the even smaller kid that was left alone because even the bullies felt sorry for him. But not today. Today, the Geo has been given an adamantium skeleton and a bazooka to settle a few old scores. Find this […]
The 3rd generation of Geo Metro was introduced in 1995 on the third generation of the Suzuki Cultus platform…but today’s custom Metro looks more like a 1994 (or earlier) second generation Cultus, or at least what is left of it. Find this 1995 Geo Metro offered for $1500 in Orlando, FL via craigslist. When I […]
