Seeing lots of Metros on the road lately
I've seen more metros this spring than I ever have. Seems like a couple times a week I spot one on the road that I've never seen before. I parked next to a 4dr hb 5spd the other day when I was running an errand. Last time I filled up an xfi pulled up on the other side of the pump. There are 4-5 metros that live along my commute. On guy I saw near my work had an early 90s 2dr with some aftermarket spoiler on the hatch, he was eyeballing mine as much as I was his :D. Seems like they are making a big come back in my area, as well they should :thumbup:.

Yes I'm seeing more here in the south also. I'm also seeing more new bike riders then before. I think the discretionary spending buget has definately taken a hit.

I definitely saw that trend a couple of years ago when gas teetered over $1 a litre mark. I don't see as many anymore, probably due to them all rusting out in our weather.

Now, I'm seeing loads of cyclists everywhere. Literally like an overnight change now that gas is threatening $1.30/litre.

See? I thought this would happen. When something people use on a regular basis becomes too expensive, people adapt in some way or another.

Back when I lived at home I would drive my mom's Geo whenever gas got expensive. Especially for long trips.

That's a basic tip more people should follow: where there are multiple vehicles available, choose the one that will do the job with the least fuel consumed.
