Yeah, I keep coming back to the Metro. I will probably budget $3-$4K. From the prices I'm seeing, I think I could buy/build a pretty sweet reliable Metro for that? I've seen quite a few 1996-97's around Denver for $1,500-$2,000 with 100-150K.

I built a 60 MPG Metro that had problems right from the start for less than $1000.00 and it saves me that in fuel savings already.

GeoMetroforum.com - got mpg?

They made an AWD Pontiac 6000 too. The mpg was not that good, but it was a cool car.

I agree about the Blizzaks. I had a set once, they were unstoppable in the snow. Winter driving was like summer driving. Even as they wore down, they were great. Right now Ive got a set of Winterforces, they are good but Blizzaks are the best.
