Ahhh, the Geo Metro... the "Gone in Sixty Seconds". Not that one was used in the movie, that's just how long it takes to get one of these Chevrolet Weinerwagons out of the driveway.

A friend of mine took his Chevy Geo Metro to a dealership to trade in for a real car under one of those "Push, pull, or trade" deals. The dealer took a look at the car and said "meh, no thanks." That car would probably get denied for the "Cash For Clunkers" program.

He also drove Escorts, didn't he?

I like it. Then again, I have a soft spot for SSC's, so that is probably why.

Dave, I guess it is a good thing GM turned Steve
I agree too. I can understand brand recognition, but the Saleen name is most associated with Fords, specifically Mustangs. Sort of like the whole "Shelby Charger". It is clever marketing, and Steve does hold a business degree if I am not mistaken, but for personal reasons I would like to see the six letters grace the back of a Mustang only.
