Dude. Where’s the pics?

I got a free 01 “Chevy” Metro about a year ago. They only offered the big block in 01. MPG’s suck. 30mpg, 25mpg with the A/C running. Automatic. First gen metros were the shit. I had an 89/5spd hatchback and a 94/AT hatchback back in the day. Both were 3cyl. I miss them. They were like a modern version of an air cooled beetle. EPA killed the beetle. Safety standards killed the metro.

Even though the 01 is a metro, it’s nothing like the first gen metros. Sure, it’s tiny, but it doesn’t even compare. It’s much heavier, dual air bags, power steering, power door locks, 13in wheels, but the 16v MPFI 1.3L is impressive. Unfortunately the 3spd auto is a poor match for the motor.

Dude said he wanted a 4WD vehicle and he was told that the rust on the metro wouldn’t pass state inspection, so he bought a subaru and just wanted to get rid of the metro.

The rust wasn’t structural, so some black and silver duct tape fixed that shit. The brakes were good and the tires were only a few months old. Had a bad trans leak, but a pair of shaft seals fixed that. Oh, some fresh paint on the hubcaps too. Been running the shit out of it with no issues.
