Until somebody can figure out how to put a mower deck on a Geo, I'd say you made the right move.

Well the wife can't drive anymore, and I don't need 3 vehicles to drive, and the Geo had 192000 miles on it, plus it gets over 30 mpg, it didn't last 24 hours on CL.

This should keep the thieves from stealing it.

I stopped by the farm supply store today and checked out their trailers and I got an even better deal than I thought. Their 6X10 trailer have 3000 lb axles the one I traded for has a 3500 lb axle and a bulldog hitch. They are selling theirs for $1300. I was only asking $600 for the Geo.

I have the same bulldog coupler on my trailer. You need to keep a board with the trailer to make the latch lever move. I will never buy one with the low latch again. I need to weld a real lever to it someday.

We have had a rash of trailer thiefs in the last couple of years.

Looks like a good deal Pat- the trailer probably has greater pumpkin hauling capacity than the Metro . But SAY, wouldn't that 4 cylinder /auto make a good GT engine swap? :bounce: :bounce:

Nice swap on the trailer, Pat. Glad you got the lock for it. Mine stays locked up. I think Lee is on to something on the pumpkin hauling.
