    My biggest problem with Demuro is he completely lacks perspective. Yes, a 1992 Geo Metro convertible is slow. But so were most cars in the early 1990s.

    It is easy to rip on a 1992 Geo Metro when you reviewed a 2021 Mercedes S-Class last week.

    Hey Johnny, your'e making some good points!

    Diidn't know you were admin of Geo Metro Forum, but saw most of your posts on TeamSwift.
    I had a few Suzuki Swifts myself, some 3 cylinder and a couple of four cylinder 1600cc 16V 106hp, a motorcycle on four wheels.

    Nicely said, Mister Mullet.

    What Demuro fails to see is that these cars are performance cars in their own right -- the catch being that their "performance objective" is to deliver high fuel economy at low cost. Which they accomplish.

    Well said!
    An economy car is the most difficult of all to engineer, because it must be light weight, sip fuel, resist scimpy maintenance, have just enough room, last forever and cost almost nothing to buy and operate! That sort of performance is the most difficult of all. Old Swift/Metro and the Mirage are top players in that league, and I think the Mirage gives an excellent performance display right here and now. Dinosaurs like BMW, Audi, Chevy, Rolls-Royce, those ridiculous F 150's and the like don't even qualify for entering that league.

    Are mullets still big in Germany? Germans actually fought and won in court to keep their mullet hairstyle.

    "German soldiers will be allowed to sport mullets and ponytails after a court ruled army hair regulations were unconstitutional.

    The ruling came after an 18-year-old soldier was locked up in a cell and fined £100 when he refused to chop off his 10-inch ponytail.

    The teenaged recruit only agreed to let army barbers cut his hair when faced with three weeks in solitary confinement, but made a formal complaint at the same time.

    The military court in Munich ruled in favour of the soldier and argued the varying rules for male and female recruits were "unconstitutional" and "incomprehensible".

    It said forcing male soldiers to cut their long hair went against their rights as individuals."

    We got a census form in the mail the other day. Unfortunately the wife filled it out before I got around to it. There were questions like what gender were you at birth and what do you identify as now. I was born a male and now I identify as a unicorn-rainbow-crescent wrench.
