We've seen the values for older Geo Metro's skyrocket when fuel costs wer, um, skyrocketing. We've also wondered out loud if the perceived value is an accurate representation of what the cars should really sell for. Sure, getting 50 or more miles to the gallon is awesome, but the lack of modern conveniences, safety features and emissions technology are three major black marks against using the used vehicles as daily transportation. In any case, the high asking prices for used Metro's is still going on unabated, as evidenced by today's Craigslist Find of the Day.

Located in Aurora, Colorado, this 1992 Geo Metro LSI convertible has seen only 42,000 miles pass under its undercarriage. The 1.0-liter three cylinder engine is mated to a five speed manual transmission, making this the most fuel efficient convertible you are likely to ever run across. There are only four pictures, but the red car certainly appears at first glance to be in excellent shape. Asking price: $6,200. Is it worth it?
