    a whopping ~79 HP, and ~75 ft/lbs torque.

    -I could be wrong, but IMO:
    that’s plenty enough oomph to accommodate a
    properly-sized trailer. {Just don’t run the AC,
    if so equipped, while towing. }

    Wow.

    My 420cc Snow blower is factory rated at 22.3 ft/lbs. (just under 1/3 of the Metro).

    I'd never attempt to drive one into the NYC METRO area, which is a conundrum in and of itself.............
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    The way those things rusted, I'm not sure many had much left to recycle!

    After driving a Chevette in High School, I'm pretty certain the Metro was a better car. The only advantage for the Chevette is the RWD which made it really fun to drive in the snow with the four-speed manual.
