Hi, All!

I'm Boondock Saint. I've known about swifts/fireflys etc. for a while now, always thought they were pretty interesting. With the price of gas already at $1.30/L, and that my truck goes through $80 of it every three days, I realized that something more fuel efficient would probably be a good idea for the next little while, if not longer.

Anyway, I picked up a 1991 Firefly Turbo last weekend, and am trying to get it AirCared so I can use it as a commuter. It has a few issues, so stay tuned for a question thread! (I've already been 'lurking' here for a week, soaking up info).

So, to summarize in the OP's format:

Boondock Saint
1991 Pontiac Firefly Turbo
Owned - 1 week, and counting :)

Once you get that turbo up to snuff and on the road your not going to want to use your truck unless you have to. My pickup only leaves the yard if it's hauling something!

Welcome aboard
Scott
