Everything about this video is why I make fun of Geo Metros.

Reminds me of my Subaru glory days. I hope to always own a beater vehicle. Currently it's my ODOT truck, but I've already put a few light scratches on the Prius.

Sometimes it does surprise me that GM didn't release the Metro in my country instead of the Opel Corsa. It seems to stand up to abuse quite well for a subcompact.

I had a 987 Chevy Sprint, 1.0L 5 speed 2 door...awesome fuel economy, unstoppable in the snow...so much fun to drive as a teen.

That's the reason they stopped selling it...it got too good of MPG's and was too reliable.

So much sap on that car...

Also, what are they going to do, burn that log? Someone should tell them about a little thing called creosote.
