I was hauling my trailer (beats owning a pickup!) on Saturday, slowing for an upcoming stop sign, when a car pulled a rolling stop out in front of me. No big deal except it was a Metro, and it looked great! He pulled into a parking lot right before the stop sign and I couldn't follow because of the trailer.

I was going to the hardware store, and when I came out the Metro was pulling into the lot. I threw my stuff into the car and ran over to ask about it. It was a 98 Chevy with the 1.0 and a manual. He said he was getting around 44 with it, and again, the car was in amazing shape.
