Did you get that car from Paul H.?

Yes Paul, i did get it from Paul. :laugh:

I understand that car was from PEI when he got it. It appears to be in good shape and close to original. The dealers just couldn’t resist putting those graphics on anything with wheels in the day. I am in S’toon. We have a herd of turbos in town, come on over sometime.

Indeed, definitely hoping it’s in as nice of shape as it looks. Carfax shows Newfoundland most of it’s life, first registered fall 1992. PEI in 2018, then Paul. I’m not particularly a fan of the graphics, but i doubt i’ll be able to remove them without a noticable difference in the paint. Thanks for the invite, we’ll have to try make it out there.

i think it was pre-requisite, that the blue turbo cars got those fancy california graphics….only seen / owned one red one with those type of graphics…

The paint is thin on these but after you peel the graphics off it shouldn’t take much more than a compound and polish and you’ll never know they were there. OE wheel covers will be hard to find but not impossible if that’s the route you choose. There is plenty of turbo help here, on the SSGTIREP forum and the Swift Life Canada group on Facebook. Whatever you do you’ll have a ball with it.

The 90’s was a really great time for really bad graphics ror

I’ve never seen another with those graphics. Are you guys saying they were added by the dealers? I just assumed someone was a little fast and the furious inspired.

I do have a set of the turbo wheel covers, they’re a little rough though. Might need to track down one or two in nice shape. Probably gonna put the factory alloys on though first and see how I like them on a turbo car.

Graphics like those were a dealer installed item. These are Suzuki wheels

Hi All,

Were the mid-wings a standard feature on the Firefly cars? Just curious.

Mind you, I’m even more curious as to how OP managed to teach his dog how to drive a Club Car Golf Cart!?

Good Boi! :laugh:


Cheers,

Drew

the mid wing was a canada turbo car item….the pontiac firefly turbo and the chevy sprint turbo got the mid wing / rear wiper/ rear defogger as standard equipment, as well as the larger brakes, wheel studs, sway bars , really nice seats, charcoal interior, hubcaps with chrome lip, body kit and fog lights…and a better transmission….and remote hatch release..

all making for a nice little pocket rocket….. ;-)
