Here we go with Nice Price Or Crack Pipe again, offering a chance to chime in with your opinion on reasonable-versus-unreasonable vehicle asking prices. Last time, garbooned poll hamsters made it impossible to say with scientific certainty whether or not the $14,900 Ford Fairmontchero would have been an overwhelming Crack Pipe winner, but the tone of the comments certainly gave that impression. Today we need to look at the recent run-up in Geo Metro prices and decide whether we think six-plus grand is still beyond reason for a low-miles Metro convertible.Craigslist Denver; go here if listing disappears] … [Read more...] about Nice Price Or Crack Pipe: The $6,200 Geo Metro?
