    I wasnt really in the market for a new car, especially this one. But grandma gave it to me so how could I say no!

    Its a 1990 Geo Metro with a 144k or 44k :shrug: odometer only has 5 digits ha ha. She bought it brand new for $6500 (original sales slip was in the glovebox)

    Did a tune up on it today, oil and filter, air filter, plugs, wires, cap, and rotor, and fuel filter. She just put new tires on it a while back so they are like new. Runs like a top! Super clean...buts its still a geo. Oh well itll get better mileage than the CR-V. You can see what the wife thinks of it by her face lol

    Love the wife's look. Like, why the hell are you taking a picture of this thing? And let's park it where people won't see it.

    You going to drive that bad boy?

    yea right! lol I dont think i could get it in there in quarters!


    Thats EXACTLY what that look was! I drove it today from Maple Valley to Bellevue, to Snoqualmie, and back to Maple Valley and it did WAY better than I though it would. The 3cyl. is peppier than i thought it would be.


    I think the stock hp is 55ish lol probably more like 40 now ha ha thats a bunch of money to spend to still have less hp than a stock d15 lol but if I could find the parts cheap enough wtf not. I would imagine motors are pretty cheap for this thing
