For the most part, letting a car sit for an extended period of time isn't ideal, but sometimes it's necessary. Case in point: this 1992 Geo Metro. Said to be wearing more than 200,000 miles on its original engine, this Geo had also been sitting for four years.

Surely, it's going to have a hard time starting up, right? Let’s go to the videotape. 

It may be from 1992, but there's something to be said about the reliability of (relatively) modern cars—even when we aren't exactly nice to them.

Have you let a car sit for way too long? Did it restart when asked?

Not surprised, they're very reliable and simple things. Once got caught behind two of these 3cyl models locked in a fierce battle on track, that was pretty comical laugh

You should watch that guys other videos. His shop basically broke down the middle and was sinking down the hill. He tore down the broken half and is rebuilding it himself.

Love how the windshield wipers were still on. "Rain when parked."
