We have 3 Geo Metros - a 94 2 door hatchback, a 93 4 door hatchback and 
a 91 convertible.  We paid $1100 for the 94 3 1/2 years and 60 k miles 
ago, $950 for the 93 last year and $350 for the convertible 2 years ago. 
   We get 45 mpg on the 93 and the convertible and 40 on the 93.  We're 
quite happy with our recycled cars.
