I pulled out my one Fiero out of the yard with my Jeep's winch. Been in my backyard for several years and my other Fiero that I stripped apart after getting rear ended at a red light. I've had bad luck with Fieros but I still enjoy being around them.

i was out at my inlaws today, took a look at and had a thought... i think my car is too much work to be complete again, but i have a lot of good parts on it it has been sitting for 7 years?? bare cradle, no front suspension, radiator headlights was all hardwired for a v8 no bumper ect... perfect 84 leather steering wheel, dash is real nice, rust free car it will make a nice parts car if i decide to start another project
body parts are mismatched, but aside from the decklid, all are nice.
It was the oil filter of all things. I tightened it a couple of days ago with no change. When I removed it, the seal looked fine. A new filter doesn't leak, however. The leaking filter was a Mobil1 filter. The replacement was my preferred Pure One brand.
Interesting you mention the mobile1 filter. I have had a mysterious small oil leak since my last oil change...Using that filter.... Time to do another oil change and hope for a fix.
went to P&P--found a poor 88 that got totalled--so I got 2 new taillights (no breaks or cracks--a little delam but thats ok)--a new decklid and spoiler (mine doesnt have a spoiler) a set of lugnuts and black covers and a new set of window and power mirror switches--Steve308 also came and got leather seats from it
After taking her off the road almost a year ago, I decided it was past time to start driving her again. I had recharged the battery a month or two previously, and put fuel stabilizer in the tank before letting her sit. She fired right up. A few checks and tire pressure adjustments and I was off for a good long drive. Didn't expect it to be that easy!
Started stripping parts from an 84SE that was my daily driver for many years up till 2000, it's been sitting here since, engine and trans are dead. I had put poly and lowered springs on that car and I am moving them over to my 85GT
Plan on stripping more parts off this car before it goes to the yard.

Now that's over the top! I was wondering if that would look good. It does.
I spent the weekend replacing my left rear brake hose. I got a new one from Oreilly A/P and it was thicker where the banjo bolt goes through by 2MM. I didn't notice and it stripped out the threads in my caliper. I called them this morning and they are going to warranty the hose and split the cost of a rebuilt caliper. The hose I will just mill down though.
