Thanks MetroMPG. Less time, miles, and fuel purchased. This is a good thing. :-)

Cycleguy- the benefit to the co-workers I offered for the carpool was worth it for my efforts and sacrifice. But, I am more like you and prefer to ride alone. The conversations got difficult, stale, and boring at times and they never appreciated my music tastes. I like your idea of keeping the bike inside (good company, always). I've always found it hard to put my bikes outside on hatch mounts. My bike is worth much more $$$ than my car and I never liked it hanging out there exposed.

Keep us posted with the progress of your modifications and the benefits of your changes. I think the Geo Metro is the best value automobile I have ever purchased or even seen at this point. The modifications make them even better.
