New from Canada...

Just wanted to say Hi!

All of this seems pretty cool, but considering that I can barely change my own oil, I don't know if I will ever do any of these mods myself :-D, but someday I would like to try!

Anyone else from Canada on here?

I'm in Lunenburg NS for the winter, but normally I hang around the 1000 Islands in Ontario.

Welcome to the forum.

(PS - it's really a Firefly (the gasser), but I pretend it's a Metro so it doesn't confuse people who have never seen a Pontiac version before.)

Another Canuck here, up near the Boreal forest. There's lots of information here for buyers and drivers, as well as wrenchers. Welcome!

Hi,
Another Canuck here, wannabee "silvomodder" too(I play in my woods with saws).
Also just wanted to say that changing driving techniques pretty much trumps any car mod for improving mileage so don't feel you have to do anything to your car to start "ecomodding". You can get 25%+ better mileage for free!
Ian
