Can't say that I ever heard of a firefly. From the external damage, he may have some serious internal damage. You can't tell without tearing into it . At that age, you may want to check into a used or rebuilt engine.

Sounds like maybe he bent or cracked the oil pan? Assume you're in Canada if he has a Firefly. How bad is it leaking, a quart in 10 miles? If so I would just buy a case of oil and drive it home instead trying to fix it at the side of the road. Engine parts are the same as Geo Metro if you go to a junkyard.
