newbie in KY

Hi everyone, I'm new here, haven't even got the mileage-getter yet. Currently driving an old Volvo 240 station wagon, reliable and gets around 25mpg. Should be driving a Metro soon, if I find one cheap. Anybody else in KY?

My new Geo Metro is red. It has 3 cylinders and 5 gears. At first I had the timing belt off a tooth, which really hurt FE as well as acceleration. Got that fixed, then my exhaust fell off.....

......anyway, I repaired that as well as I could, which meant eliminating the catalytic converter. I have rebuilt the top end of the engine, although I haven't got the 3tech economy cam yet.

And that concludes my fifth post, after which I can post links.
