I borrowed my Accord about ten years before I bought it.

Another barely used Metro with the wrong trans



48,000 km = 29.8k miles.

Located in SW Ontario.

Hi I am selling my 91' metro with only 48000km Car is automatic and has brand-new winter rims and tires. I bought it from the original owner who was a 88 year old lady who never drove the car in the winter. This is its first winter. New alternator and good summer tires on seperate rims.
Asking price: $2600

If you had the parts to do a trans swap, it might be interesting. Hey... I have the parts!

Wrong trans again, but still impressive...

I like this one because it's an original owner first gen 1987 Firefly!


And it's a bit of a barn find (parked indoors for the last 10 yrs).




Not particularly low kilometers in absolute terms, but extremely low for a 33 year old car @ 148k kms = 92k miles.


But then it's the wrong transmission, of course. As most of these tend to be.

I like that he doesn't know who made the car. (First gen were made in Japan by Suzuki. After that they were made in Ontario by GM.)

Is the well running dry?

For the first time ever, when I renewed my email alert for Metro/Firefly/Swifts, there is NONE currently for sale within 500 km of me.


I assume that means my horde will be going up in value soon.

I paid off the XFi and put it up on the rack. There's a 3-4ft piece of exhaust pipe spliced in and the middle exhaust hanger is missing. Sticky windshield wiper switch.

Other than that, it's daily driver-able.

Nice.

I think I'm going to sell the '91 Firefly convertible I snagged years ago but haven't gotten around to repairing (needs floors). The unexpected MPGiata windfall supplanted it anyway.

I'm very happy with the Miata's ~50 MPG, not to mention more entertaining driving characteristics & better prospects of holding value vs. ~65 MPG and less of the other things with the Firefly convertible. Even though the Firefly has less than half the kilometers on it as the Miata (110k km = 68k mi. vs. 230k km)
