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.

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

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