Geo Metro on Watch JrGO

The YouTuber who goes under the name Watch JrGO bought a Metro to flip. He paid just $300. He notices a couple switches on the dashboard that no longer do anything, but I suspect they might have been an Ecomodder's injector killswitch and maybe an alternator or radiator fan switch.

JR and a couple friends make quick work of replacing a few parts, cleaning it, and then selling it. All in one day.

Ever wonder how quickly a Metro can do 60 feet, 0 to 60 mph, or the 1/8 mile, or the 1/4 mile? You'll find out.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
