A trailer hitch too, so a pickup replacement or a aerotrailer to boot.

Love that Metro... wheel skirts look really tight. Kamm is pretty well shaped too. Those wheels look 14 or 15", though. Doesn't te Metro have a rare bolt pattern and like 12" or 13" stock wheels? Is it a later Metro, like 1999?

My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Saw it a couple of hours ago.

IIRC there are currently 3 Priuses ("Prii" my ass) undergoing tests in police patrolling in Brazil, one here in Porto Alegre and 2 in Pernambuco state, one in Recife and the other in Fernando de Noronha.

I haven't seen a Volt since 2012. Anyway, it does look so much more conventional than the 1st-generation.

'93-'95 Brazilian Ford Escort, all stock, fitted with a 5-speed manual and, due to the AutoLatina joint-venture, a Volkswagen EA827 1.8L engine. There were versions with a Renault-based 1.6L OHV engine too, but these are very rare nowadays.

There is a thread for that: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...tus-32624.html.
Will take a while before this comes out into the wild though.
I fear up till now it is nothing but an ordered bunch of pixels.

What's the excuse to get a full-size truck? Are them the only ones that can handle the work? That's not so accurate, look at this Diesel S10 (with a 5-speed manual).
