This could have been a happy story of a rescued Swift/Metro/Cultus/Barina.

Instead, it is about a car that appears to have been driven to a wrecking yard and sold for parts. Join me in shedding a few tears for this poor Metro's fate. Sadly, there were 3 Metros/Swift owners (including me) at the wrecking yard's parking lot that were shopping for parts, and our cars were not as nice as this one. :givebeer: :cry:

That's a crying shame.

Early 98 in a rare color and VERY good condition from the looks of it. Doesn't even have the "but cheek dent" in the hatchback that most Metros have by 30K miles.

Just needs a real transmission.

The strange part is that people would get 2x the money for the car if they sold it as a parts car instead of wrecking it.

But I guess some people have too much money and can't be bothered...
