Well my swift has been in storage for about 2 years. Throughout this winter, I made a totally new turbo setup using my spare Volvo turbo. Let's just say it well matched for high revs.


What's new with you patman?

I've never met any of you, but would be interested in bringing my 91 Firefly Vert from Toronto and meeting some of you. Where and when?

We're "FireFlying" through Newfoundland at the moment, due to be back to work on Sept 24, but might make it back to GTA by the 22nd. Once we go through Prince Edward Island on the way home, we'll have had our Wee Ting in every province since last September, and 8 States... Maybe more if we go home through Maine, etc. Having a blast! I just posted more provincian "Pics" to our album today.

Which/where "Boston Pizza" do you have in mind? Where is Centennial Park? Thanks.

OK, Slight change to:

This will have allowed time for lunch with families?

I was so down to meet this Sunday but my Swift took an electrical shit. I have a short somewhere in the fuse block causing my headlights to stay on when the headlight switch is off, and then when i switch the lights on the starter engages :huh:

If i can repair it before Sunday i'll be swing by if not :( then next time.
