Smile FS: Crazy low miles/kms Metros/Fireflies/Swifts -- Little old lady owners, driven to church on Sundays

Not mine!

I am going to use this thread to save for posterity the crazy low miles Metros/Fireflies that come up for sale every couple of months within 500 km (300 mi) of me. (Email alerts are great!)

These are the proverbial Little Old Lady cars that went to church on Sundays and to get groceries once during the week.

Provided these cars didn't sit where the tin worm could get at 'em from underneath, these could be great deals.

EG. this like-new '95 Firefly... WITH 13,000 KILOMETERS ON IT! (8k mi)






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.

Probably just used it to go down the lane to get the mail.

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
