Yeah, I just tow the Metro with a tow bar. The car has tabs welded on the front of it.

Trucks are great if you use them as trucks. You'd be amazed at what a hatchback can do though. Oh wait. This is Ecomodder.... You guys already know that.

Anyways, I guess my point it that is typically best to have a vehicle that meets more to your minimal side than the overpowered/overly expensive side.
