Default Beat the living pee out of a Geo Metro.

I was on my way to pick up my girlfriend when I came upon a riced out Geo Metro. Now I knew these things had nothing, and the guy wanted to race so I did just that. The light turned green and I punched it. I basically walked all over him, but he punched it after I had won and followed me after I made a turn and I punched it again and never saw him again. Another win for the bonneville, rock on. Not to mention I had just got my new high flow cat back exhaust so that helped considerably.

Well...at least you only raced him because he initiated it (right?) I'm just shocked someone would actually waste money on ricing one of those.

If I were that guy in the Metro I'd tint the windows as dark as I could so nobody could see me, that'* how embarrased I'd be.

I would have to agree with the rest of the posts. I would take a civic (ugggh) over a metro.

The guy had a rather big exhaust on this thing, it seemed the exhaust was bigger then the car, probably worth more to. He did initiate he wanted to race, so I showed him up and killed the poor guy, I felt bad for him actually. I had taken a drive in some go carts and I bet they do go faster then that metro. If I had a choice between a civic or a metro, I would take neither and walk. You ain't gonna find me in an import.
