Welcome to BC. You'll like it here. The weather's mild, it rarely snows (road salt is rarely used), the frequent rain keeps the air clean, plus you're short hop from Mission Raceway (world class 1/4 mile drag + road course 24 feet above sea level).

BTW, time to update the location in your profile! :wink:

anyone willing to schedule another meet sometime in july/aug?
just got back from a 3 week vacation in penticton/kelowna (made the trip several times)

only caualties are one 5th gear assembly, one O2 sensor, one sparkplug, 2 wheel bearings, some misc paint and scraches, some more cracks and chips in my windshield, and one poor stupid bird that flew into my hoodscoop and up over my windshield. oh and almost forgot a bolt and stud from the rear engine mount (must have vibrated loose)

oh and got 3 more people to want turbo firefly's just from getting a ride. (a good friend acually got the privalege to drive it and he found a red one in good condition in town and left his number on a card on the windshield asking if they wanted to sell it)

im willing to drive up to the OKAN if anyone is willing to hold one up there.

See my album. It all started in 1999 with an innocent little red 88 2 dr sprint and now I can't stop myself. Oh my album is missing all the ones I've bought and scrapped for parts and a yellow 90 firefly 'vert that I just sold to a friend who bugged me to buy it from the day I got it. Album has been updated with pics of the 90 'vert.
