This is probably old news to a lot of us here, but I came across this article today:

Yeah, I've got 6 hanging from the rafters in the barn, I figure I'll give it a couple of years and a few more $ a gallon, then I'll send them down to Barret-Jackson and retire to my own island in the Carribean...


j/k

Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice

My Metro (Swift actually) is a chick magnet! Nerd Power!

With gas prices going the way they are, small motorcycles will be the next thing people will hoard. I have a few of those too.

Wow - I wonder why people don't want Hondas? They have legendary reliability, many of them were assembled here in the US (there is also a Toyota plant in Buffalo, WV, and Smyrna, Ohio has a Nissan plant), they go forever, get better mileage than US cars like Ford & Chevy - I honestly wonder why?

^^Just plain 'ole fashioned hard headedness. But that's cool. Just more Honda's for you and me. I have sure loved every one that I have owned.

I got my geo prizm for 1500 bux about 2 or 3 months ago, Hooray! I think the bondo on the passenger side door might be increasing the drag . But with 32.5/35 not much to complain about.

The Metro is an investment in the future, Solomon said, even if she did pay more than five times the Blue Book value of the car.
This woman is stupid. What kind of future is there in a '97 Metro? The point of these cars is to get them cheap, because aside from their gas mileage they have very few redeeming qualities.

If she had went ahead and bought a Prius, that would be an investment in the future.

I agree, the woman is a moron. She should have just traded in her Element for a Prius or a Civic Hybrid, that way in 5 years she would still have value left in the car. If you pay 7,300 for a Metro, you're a moron.
