For some reason, this GSi didn’t come up in a Craigslist search when I used the term “Prizm GSi,” but instead popped up in a simple “Prizm” match with the years set between 1989 and 1992.
Which brings us to an important point for those of us looking for a particular car on Craigslist or other online sources – don’t just use one search term. Try a few, utilize the “full search” functions to include years of manufacture, drop-down menus for make and model, etc. And perhaps most of all, for those searching for a Prizm GSi, do a search under “Prism.”

Just when you think they’re all gone, a super-rare hatchback pops up for sale in the deep south. It’s been a while since any GSi have shown up for sale online, and this one escaped our notice for a few weeks due to Google search algorithms and bad luck.

We’ve previous established the relative rarity of the various incarnations of the Prizm GSi – comparitively, the sedan is a dime-a-dozen model, while the hatchback would command, well at least a couple of dimes per dozen. Yeah, they are rare, but as a friend once pointed out, that doesn’t necessarily make them desirable or valuable.
So what if a guy wanted to do something crazy like cut a giant hole in the roof? Is there really that much to lose, other than a capable, but relatively innocuous subcompact unknown by a vast majority of the population?

Is this it? The last Prizm GSi left? Based on the junkyard-provided beauty shot, it may as well be. Continue reading “Red ’92”
Just a quick note to get a couple of things out of the way – we are under no delusion that the Geo Prizm GSi is some sort of ultra-desirable status symbol that is a prime example of rampant car fakery. It’s not a rare muscle car, a one-of-a-handful brass-era machine – it’s an early 90’s subcompact that happens to be built in relatively few numbers.
That said, there is still opportunity for people to take advantage of an uneducated public. In a quest to make this site the central place for Prizm GSi knowledge, we present the following.

Obviously, the prizmgsi.com Prizm GSi wouldn’t be rolling around for long with one presentable aluminum wheel and three dilapidated messes. No more than a few weeks at least…

Well, they can’t all be winners, can they? After the stunning success and almost frightening ease in which the headlight project all came together, one can’t expect that every check box on the list would be completed with such aplomb.

One of 2,013, now at the end of the road. Crusher-bound, but this one looks pretty straight on the outside for those looking for replacement body parts. Continue reading “Red ’91”
Having ridden a motorcycle for a while now, the concept always rattling around in my brain has been, “drivers can’t see you.” Magazines, training programs and a rider’s general experiences all reinforce that idea – motorists, while not intentionally trying to kill you, are intentionally trying to kill you. So the rider always tries to figure out a way to be more visible – lane positioning, headlights and high beams, screaming zonker yellow body suits, the like.
