This isn't my first post on PFF. My first posts were asking for technical help and parts requests, LOL. My name is John and I live in Savannah, GA. I work as an electrical engineer for a Corporate Jet OEM (Gulfstream Aerospace). I have been into (rebuilding) cars of all sorts for the last 20 years. I have done all stock trucks, 400rwhp naturally aspirated sports cars, 505 rwhp supercharged sports cars, 310 rwhp rotary twin turbos, minivans and 4x4 Jeeps.
I am posting now to add before and after pictures of my "free" 1988 Fiero Coupe 2.5L 5-speed and to introduce myself. I acquired the Fiero from a co-worker that bought it 5 years ago with a locked up motor. He pulled the motor and bought a short block for it and rebuilt the cylinder head. He mounted the block to the cradle (with new clutch) and re-installed the motor/cradle. That was 2006. He lost interest in the little 4 cylinder (he drives a '86 GT with 383 stroker V-8 from archie). He bought a 'vette recently and needed room to restore it so I was offered the little 2.5L Fiero.
I towed it home and completed the motor install and put the interior back together. There were several items missing as he was using it as a parts car over the last 4 years. Here are some pictures I took after unloading it from the car hauler.
I then took pictures today after putting 40 miles on the little Fiero, the first time it was moved under it's own power since at least 2005.
