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.

Incredibly simple to work on! That's an engine bay that is not at all intimidating.

And this guy can really burn through a solid flip. With a partner or two, he seems to get all kinds of flips done in a day, generally using reasonable quality new parts from O'Reilly. He's a really good mechanic, seems to me. Speaks "internal combustion engine" fluently.

And he likes low displacement cars too!

Yeah, that's true. He does. And mostly imports. In one video he rehabilitated a Chevy sedan and ended up unable to sell it for a while. He declared he would stick to imports in that vid, IIRC.

He did more work on that hooptie in one day than I did on my Festiva the entire time I owned it

And he's standing next to a nice G1 Volt at the start of the video:thumbup:

Right?! He talks about that car in another video. He says he loves it as a daily driver.
