Hatches In Motion: Geo Prizm

You may have read that a 1990 Geo Prizm was my first car.  Here’s something that neither you, fair reader – nor myself knew about the Geo Prizm: it was capable of a 9.4 second 0-60 sprint.

Yeah, I’m just as shocked as you.

From the obsessively complete and perfectly-named testdrivejunkie.com is this awesome blast from the past – a Motorweek review of everyone’s favorite GM captive import.

Also shocking is the Prizm’s 140 foot stopping distance from 60 mph – comparable with a contemporary F150 Supercab and about 40 feet longer than a couple of other small cars from the era that I sampled on testdrivejunkie.

Like crack, the first hit of testdrivejunkie is free.  Unlike crack, all the others are as well – but equally addictive.  I hope you have some free time…
