That 9 sec Geo video is awesome. The launch is great. Pre-spool, pull the trigger, Gone...

I just picked up a 1999 Chev Cavalier Z24 for $800 Canadian (inc Safety and E-Test) with a good set of summer tires and a brand new set of snow tires on steel wheels. Cost about $30-35 Canadian to fill and I get 500kms to a tank.

I'm happy.. I will drive it most of the winter and probably sell it for at least what I paid in the spring.

Good deal Still have my Subaru, but I would rather put the 400-500kms a week on the Cavalier.

Well, I got back from Florida today. I did NOT buy that Geo. Yes, I won the auction but I refused to pay him. The ad said something about "just add a driver and gas" when describing the condition of the car. He failed to mention that the steering had about 6" of play in the wheel. If he had mentioned this I could have found out how much it would have been to fix it but since he didn't I couldn't take the chance. The engine and body (lack of rust) looked nice. The front glass was scratched (bad wiper) and someone had scratched a picture of a dick into the rear glass! He said the interior was an 8 out of 10 but the steering wheel was almost disintegrated from being in the sun. I figured the dash was a few weeks from cracking for the same reason. The 4cyl engine with the automatic was peppy. It has been a long time since I had my old 3cyl chevy but driving this car reminded me of how fun my Sprint was (yep - I am describing it as fun). So, I am not definitely in the market for a nice manual 3cyl and will keep looking.
