After much exhausting searching we settled on a 1995 Geo Trooper. These mini SUV’s have great gas mileage at 27 mpg, towing capability to 1,000 pounds and the roof comes off to reveal a fun summer vehicle. Geos are often compared to Prius for efficiency for a lot less cost. We went and picked it up today and drove it home.
It’s all the joy of riding a bike only faster and more convenient. The ragtop lets in all the sounds and smells of the road making the trip an experience rather than a blank space in between destinations. The gas efficiency means we can buzz around without worrying about breaking the bank. The last owner put in a fabulous sound system.
The first time I was pulling away to grab some groceries I turned it on just in time to hear I Believe in Miracles. We smiled and turned it up. We certainly do. ;D
