When I first started on my Metro she was rolling on 12's and just as plain as the day she rolled out of the factory.JV&S showed me a whole new world such as skirts,wings,rims,engine upgrades and now she is almost done i still have some things to do tint,Midwing and finish the interior Paint and front seats.

When i took this picture a guy was walking into the store he stopped and asked me if i was taking the picture so i could sell her. I said no this is my baby. Then I asked him how much would you ask if you were selling this car? He looked inside then around her took 2 steps back and said 3,500 to 4,000 if it runs as good as it looks. I said that sounds about right hahahahahahahaha

It felt good to hear someone say that whether he had a dime to his name or not he liked what i did to Geo Metro (GT Metro)

Dude....It's HOOPTIE.! I think "Hoopdee" is an ice cream bar?
.
When I was over at the house the other day cleaning out your yard.
My dad saw your car
At 82 I think he was sporting wood as he was looking over your Red Geo GT (I'm kidding)
He kept asking me "Can we take this one instead"?
I had to tell him 3 time No dad were not taking that one .....
.................................................................................Man I hate to dissapoint my dad
.
.

.
You did a great job on your Geo GT it looks way better in person then the picture's shows.
.............................. Now your vert needs some love right after the CGBS your going to be doing next ...Ya Baby.!
.
Can I have my hubcaps back?
