Not only may you put your car at the bottom of every page, it's actually
a requirement on this list. We just let those that don't do so slip by
with their humility.
I believe the last GT6 was built in November of '73. Check the driver's
side door jamb for your build date. My bad boy was bolted together in
8/73, and yeah, it's low ... but it ain't slow. I usually blow right by
those Geo Metros.
