the best mod ever!!!

so i decided that the best thing you can do to make your gto feel like it is like a rocket is to buy a geo metro, or any other slow as tar 40 mpg getter.
well i have a geo and have driven it for two weeks, trying to keep the miles down on the goat. not only does the goat feel like a hundred thousand dollar sports car it just makes it feel like it is fast as hell ha ha kind of a dumb thread but has anyone else experienced this?

Yes but not quite as drastic as that. My daily driver is a 1990 Ford Ranger. 2.9L V6, automatic trans, etc. Pretty slow but it might outrun your Metro.

i gotta tell you that you do NOT feel cool driving the geo but when you fill up the tank from half tank that it took two weeks to burn and the pump stops at ten bucks you just gotta love it

I wouldn't mind it, I know I have a GTO and the wifes G8 at the house. I would drive the GEO around the local area. If the A/C works I'm happy, its too hot around here without A/C rolling the window down does nothing it feels like a blow dryer.

`97 Taurus with the pushrod 3.0L, doesn't even have enough umph to spin the tires from a stop, but does get 30mpg on the interstate. Lots funner to drive the GTO!

The Talon made my GTO feel like a beast. I really do loose feeling of how fast it is until I drive something normal.
