Just watched Last Car Standing and a Geo Metro won the sub-compact round..

They took the 10k in upgrades and did a GT engine conversion on the car with a lot of body work.

So who's going to fess up to it?

Not sure if people from the US will be able to watch any video but you can try.

It is a great show.

Hey boys, the show was a blast, I knew someone from here would spot it eventually. How does she look? I think it turned out pretty sweet

Yeah from what I could see it was night and day.. I was a little concerned about the required body work after you went full speed reverse into the jersey barrier to get over those rims.

Was able to find a recap of that episode, and watched a different full episode of the show. Anyone know what season and episode it was?
If nothing else, thanks for the find on a new show to watch! Exciting, yet gut-wrenching at the same time. :shock: :( :o :blackeye:

The body work ate up most of the budget. every panel was straightened or replaced. I was able to score a gt parts car, a 96 firefly with straight body lines and rims for cheap and I have a few little extras here and there. Even with the huge hit to the budget I still came out a winner and I have a car for a few more years. Very fun car to drive

Ha, I just watched this yesterday on discovery turbo.
I thought it was awesome. Got so excited when I saw that twin cam under the hood. 8)
