Smile 1995 Pontiac Firefly (Geo Metro), 8000 miles / 13000 km

Not mine!





Wrong engine & trans, but remarkable that these barely driven little old lady econoboxes are still coming out of the woodwork here in the rust belt of the Great White North.

It's an automatic, so its Ecomodder value is already lower.

You know you're an ecomodder when 1.3L is considered a Hellcat engine on a Metro.

Mine, too.

It's a Pontiac! You could topcoat it in black, add gold panel stripes and a screaming chicken on the hood.

And/or, hand it over to someone like Ben Nelson. https://ecomodder.com/forum/showthre...here-6706.html
