I’ve never seen a Metro quite like this…
I was in Boulder, Colorado for a seminar recently and I saw this Geo Metro when I parked. Originally, I saw the odd, home-made looking “scoop” which was enough to attract me with my new Motorola E815 EV-DO Phone (Verizon Wireless) (situations like this are exactly why I wanted a camera phone).
Once I got closer, I saw the semi-truck style custom exhaust pipes, not to mention the cluster of add-on after-market gauges stuck all around the steering wheel…
I’ve seen sites with the rice-racer type Honda Civics and Mitsubishi Lancers, all sporting over-size whale tails, fart cannons, and ground effects attempting to mask the fact that the car is the total base-model 4-cylinder cheapie with a Type-R sticker cleverly applied. However, I’ve never seen the combination of semi-truck (or I guess, “hot rod” truck pipes) with a very strange, ricer style PVC-pipe looking scoop.
This is definitely not the worst looking “street racing” type mod-job I’ve seen (the owner obviously takes pride in the clean paint and style) yet the various pieces of the whole car just didn’t seem to fit together. Maybe this thing really hauls ass, I don’t know.
