Dunno, we had a four headlight 1986 SWB slushbox one with a 2.6 Mitsubishi motor that was not good (ate heads). Fun memories, including spinning out in one empty in a snowstorm. Drove much better on the way home fully loaded with carparts. Not sure if my father kept the logbook for it or not, it was sold over 12 years ago.
Do not forget we had Turbo vans in the US and Europe got diesels. I have seen a couple European spec Voyagers in the states, here on Holiday or the like.
Almost all of the 95-97 Metros you will look at will have the faded dash. Same can almost be said for the sagging headliner. On the rust, it'll be hit and miss. I've been looking at ALOT of Metros over the last few months and most of them that were 95-97 were that way.
There's a Metro on eBay that will probably go for a song. I tried to tell her what the problem is (I'm 95% sure that it is a VERY SIMPLE $25 fix) but I have a feeling she just wants to be rid of the car. You may want to check it out. Someone will be VERY happy!!
That metro is nice, but i am not going to road island to buy it. Did you notice what section it is listed in.
Car & Truck Parts > Exterior > Mirrors
Sorry about that, I keep having to remember what is acceptable for me, isn't for others. For a Metro it probably wouldn't be worth the trip for you since it'll probably only go for a few hundred bucks less than it would be for a car top shape.
200 miles is where I draw the line. There is a MX-3 that I am probally going to look at. I love the look of mx-3s. It like a insight without wheel skirts. (this is not the car, it is just for a comparison).
2008 EPA adjusted:
Distance traveled by bicycle in 2007= 1,830ish miles
Average commute speed=25mph (yes, that's in a car)
