GO METROS!!!

If my wife would of listened to me and took my advice of "the car isn't costing me anything, let me put it in the garage - pull the tags and forget about it" . I'd have my old Metro on eBay this week getting a tad more than the $1,600 it sold for a year ago. Finally, the Metro owners are getting the respect they deserve instead being the butt of all jokes. When people think of crappy car the Metro seems to be synonymous.

Mark my words - the Geo Metro will start selling over its original price tag by 2010.

Yes, I read it. The record-setting Metro sold for $7300, it was $9000 new.

Same with CRXs - they are about $1000 more than they were in February.
