Nostalgic Subcompact: 1991 Geo Metro Convertible video review


This comes from 'ol "Motorweek '90" from, uh, 1990. Anyway, the 1991 Metro Convertible made a whopping 55 hp through its 1,000cc three-cylinder engine. Zero-60 took 13+ seconds, and I do love watching them flog it through the slalom.

Of course, I see this and think: Metro convertible + 1.3-liter DOHC Suzuki Swift engine = fun & cheap.

The Metro GTi has been done before! Great conversion:

Yes, indeed. I actually knew Joel through my days as a magazine editor. He was Mr. Suzuki! I haven't seen him since 2003, though.

I love the Suzuki Swift GTs but they are so expensive to do ANYTHING to. Even for a rebuild its top-dollar.

Chris, I wonder why that is? Fewer available parts?
