Yeah baby! They only make 2 size 12's these days. I can put my spares off the bird on it and upgrade.



It drives pretty darn good for a can. The gas gauge was on E red line empty. Filled it up with 8.85 gallons. Let's see how far that will get me.

I would hate to drive one of those myself, but with the gas prices these days its understandable, you know just got into my med tech program at school and I have to quit before I ever start gas the damn gas. Hey at least its decently clean. Just be careful these cars do flip a little easier because of the wheel base, and make sure you watch out for bigger cars and trucks and 18 wheelers. You have to drive defensively in one like a motor cycle. Good luck

My first car back in 1992 was a 1986 Chevy Sprint. It was a 3 cyl with a 5 speed. Now matter how much I beat on it I never once got less than 40 mpg. And the suzuki engine used in that was bulletproof.

You should get a monster air horn for it, so you can let the Escalade and Hummer drivers know you are around.

I used to ride in one of the 3-cyl Geo Metros fairly often. It is a little scary being in the smallest vehicle out there. But it's fun sometimes too.

Yeah I already put tall poles with flags on them so they can see me, like you see on kids bikes.
