1996 Geo Metro Should I?

I am very new to the forum and I came on here about a week ago looking for advice and you all turned me onto geo metros. I have found a 1996 geo metro with a 1.3l 4 cyl but its automatic. I think i can get it for 1000.00 should I?

Seconded!

You will be very disappointed with a 3-speed automatic.
