Retro cars!

A CNN Article about people buying Metros on Ebay

I still think $7K is a bit much. But it did make me a lil nostalgic for the Aspires (may they rest in peace).

Well, it's what the market will bear, and it's still so cheap for a car with high gas mileage...

I'm really hoping it will start/continue a trend. I've seen two brand new shiny SmartCars in the past week, so I keep crossing my fingers that cars will trend smaller and more fuel efficient.

We were talking about smartcars yesterday and Jeff and I agreed on something for once: I would be way too terrified to take one of those things on the beltway!!

I think they're better suited for city driving than for Beltway driving, but heck, driving on the Beltway at all is pretty terrifying! At least you're less likely to get in an actual high-speed collision there, since the traffic ensures you almost never get to travel at high speed. =)
