Thanks! Anyways, here are a few pics of the Metro.

Here's the Metro the day I got it. I wasted no time getting to work cleaning the grease pit engine, which is why it's on ramps.

Here's how it sits today. I am awaiting my new head from 3 Tech with the economy package to build the engine. While I am waiting, I am attending to all the little crap that is wrong with a 116k mile Metro that only cost $350. The fenders are off to clean out the body drains and fix some surface rust and caulk.

At any rate, I will go ahead and start a build thread here in the next day or so.
No green technology will ever make a substantive environmental impact until it is economically viable for most people to use it. This must be from a reduction in net cost of the new technology, not an increase in the cost of the old technology through taxation

(Note: the car sees 100% city driving and is EPA rated at 37 mpg city)
