Hatchback Alert! Silver ’91

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.

Convince Me This is(n’t) a Bad Idea

 

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?

Buyer Beware

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.

Hatchback alert!  And oh, how your editors wish it were better than this.  Despite the horrible photography, it’s pretty easy to surmise that this ride is destined for the scrapheap very soon indeed.  Without even seeing what sins that blue spray paint may hide, the Craigslist location in Ohio will certainly give a hint.  There’s rust visible even in the dark photos and I would assume, in many, many other places as well.  It’s rare, yes, but also quite done.
