Awe, now you're making me want to ditch the Metro and get something sporty . The only thing that's holding me back is my cents per mile is still lowering on the Geo, and I'll need to penny pinch when I move out of my parent's place in the next year or so. That and I still want to get into the top-10-list on this site... so close yet so far!

You want sporty? Then how about this AWESOME 29/40 Old School MPG Megalith that I drove in the mid 1980's :

Man, that Opel is so sweet looking. Beautiful curves.

I really liked those Capris. The Celica GTs from the same time frame were great too.

I drove a Datsun B210 for a couple of weeks. It was yellow like the honey bee but it was a fastback. The interior looked like it was right out of a 240Z, all black and brushed aluminum. Too cool.

At the end it was probably getting even better MPG, since one cylinder was offline. Here is something very honest from within their brochure :

Karmen Ghia.

Back in the 70s I had a 57 Karmen Ghia that got 35 to 40 mpg. It was a rather crude little car with very little useable room but I put a lot of miles on it with little mechanical trouble. I bought it for $200, drove it for 3 years, then sold it for $500.

BTW, the car didn't even come with a fuel gage, instead it had a reserve valve like a motorcycle.

Karman Ghias with the bumpers removed are really nice-looking, to me.

Saab Sonett Mark II. They were powered by a Ford V-4, and they looked great.
