Wow! I will even say it backwards, Wow! Every time that I check out this thread, I get a bit teary eyed. Not for saddness, but for the comradery (sp) that follows this forum. Everyone that has participated in this, should stand up and take a bow. You are all needed in this community.

Tyler: Keep your head up buddy. Your grace in all of this is something that we should all embrace. You sir, are a class act if there ever was one.

I am glad someone had posted the vid. I missed it due to the weather. I had to leave earlier than normal so I could make it to work lol. Darn snow. That was a great vid, it will always give me that warm fuzzy feeling inside. This kid really does deserve this car.

A beautiful story, told with heart, compassion and flair. So much so, that I cried all over again.
I am so glad that I belng to this incredible Forum. It allowed Ellie and me to contribute a tiny bit too, for which we are soooo proud.
Thanks for posting the video link...we wouldn't have been able to see it otherwise, here in Spain...except, of course, on good ol' youtube That isn't quite the same, somehow.
Thanks again too, to Hulki and Synthesis.

I was laying in bed when Kare11 showed this clip. I woke up the wife and made her watch it too....she thought that all fiero people were nerds until she saw that. It was very moving to see it on TV instead of just reading it here.

I'm speachless....GREAT JOB to everyone that helped out. (+s from me to everyone that helped)

That was great, The reporter did a great job. I have to wonder though with all of the attention on the news and AOL an in papers. Has there been any new members on this Forum that had, have or want Fieros but just didnt know about Cliffs website? I guess thats a question for Cliff.

It was heart warming all over again to see the news story. As I was told, they ran this story twice, 10pm and also the next morning, hitting a pretty big audience. I agree with the sentiments of the others here. What a cool thing! Everyone have a happy and safe holiday.

Wow just watched the video. It is snowing today here in West Michigan and no one coming in to buy a truck so I watched the video. That was a great piece of editing! They really did a fantastic job of putting that together.

Amazing build!!

It's awesome to see people getting together to help another out in times of need/despair. This is truly touching and although I've been unable to make any contribution (money/parts/time) There have been my thoughts for Tyler and his family.

Being in a family that's been through the woes of cancer I can sympathize for all the pain and troubles it causes for everyone around. All you can do is take one day at a time and make it the best.

I'm jealous of the amazing car though. - good work boys!

I had been gone from the forum for a time. I just became aware of Tyler and his situation. I wish for him and his family a wonderful Holiday and a full recovery from his illness. I, myself, have battled cancer (at a young age) and you CAN win! I would also like to send my appreciation to all who helped out on the rebuild of his prized Fiero. Thank you all. There is HOPE for this species as long as there are so many good people out there to help out when the need arises for someone in desperate straights! Bless!

I need to make a very public apology to Stuart Restad of Restad Repair...

During the original thread, there was a photo of his 3.4 swap on his wife's Fiero that really caused some concern with many members of the Fiero community...

I had a revelation today that helped me realize that I was one of those members, and I have wronged Stuart, Mike (boysatt) and a few others by judging them without truly knowing them or their drive to meet and exceed the efforts that were invested in the Tyler Project with the original build.

I know when I am wrong, and I am willing to say "I am sorry."

Stuart, I realized today that an auto mechanic spends more time and effort on their client's cars to make sure they are perfect than they do on their own. I should never have judged your work quality and craftsmanship ahead of time. I was wrong for this. I am sorry, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.

boysatt, based on my limited experience with you on this forum, and what I have learned about you in our mutual journey on PFF, I also misjudged you. You have put a lot of effort and heart and soul into the engine swap, and it looks beautiful. I am sure it runs as well as it looks, and I look forward to seeing it in person.
Please accept my apologies. You don't have to like me, but I ask that you at the very least consider forgiving me for passing judgment based on text on a web forum, and what others have said. I should have never listened to them.

I spoke with Stuart tonight, and I firmly believe him when he states the old engine is worn. It has 140k+ on it, and even a rebuild would be questionable on it.
I am fully confident in the work that they have done, and believe that it meets the ideals that were set when we built the car... "Perfection isn't good enough"..

There were MANY people who participated in the swap that took time off of work, dug deep into their own pockets, and made sure that the engine went in without difficulty, and that everything worked. To the rest, I do not know who you are, or how much you participated, but thank you.

Tyler now has himself a beautiful car with a powerful motor, and the reliability to get him through anything with it .

I was wrong. And for that, I am sorry.

The build, the swap, everything is about Tyler. Building the dream that he dreamed, and making it more than he could have ever imagined.

I too had jumped to conclusions from looking at the photo of that swap. Like the plumber whos own house has leaking pipes it was not fair to assume that Tylers car would not be given a 100% from the people involved in the swap.

Chris - what a wonderful post. I just want you to know how much I appreciate and respect what you had to say. It is hard to say you are wrong... believe me I know this first hand as a VERY stubborn lady (shhhhh... don't tell my family I admitted that one). Christmas is about giving, not just gifts you can buy but gifts that we can give each other as people caring about one another. The men and women on this web site have done so much for Tyler. I wish I could give you all something equal to what you have done, but I can't think of anything that would come close, so just know that all that have helped with Tyler's Toy have a little piece of Tyler forever. Hopefully you will talk about this to people 10, 20, 30, 40 years from now. Hopefully this story will be told and whoever is hearing it will know that good people are still around and willing to go that extra mile. This has been a shining light in our life and my wish is that it will shine brightly for other people as well.

Daneele, thank you for the kind words.

When it comes to something like this, there is always a sense of "ownership" of the project...

As one member said, it is a testosterone thing: if we aren't there, it isn't being done right..
It is a mentality that us car guys have. We have to step away from that thought process, and it can be difficult...

I have said it before and meant it every time. I mean it more now... We want Tyler to be happy. Everything we have done is for him.

Stewart standing in the car making the fuel lines, He made all metal and plastic lines with quick disconnects. He had the fancy kit and tools to make those, they look cleaner and very simple to unhook.






In this picture you can see my custom dipstick.

This mount was used instead of a dog bone.



Front trans mount



Rear trans mount



First attempt at a custom rear valve cover, had too much angle the first time.


First test fit


Working on the test fit


Custom true dual exhaust






Final attempt at a oil filler, work perfect this time.

Boyd Huppert from KARE11 emailed me today...

Chris,

Just wanted to thank you again for the help with Tyler's story. The e-mail response from viewers has been unlike anything I have seen in at least two years. You guys have touched a lot of folks. The story that aired was actaully cut down about 30 seconds from the one we originally edited because of the competing snow storm coverage Tuesday night.

The original longer version is scheduled to air in our Saturday 6pm show this weekend. You can let your family know Chris. A nice piece of sound from you was among the clips my supervisor pulled out to meet the time limit. I'm glad the original will air too. It's mostly the same, but with a few additions. It's an hour show on Saturday and this should hit at about the halfway point.

Below is a sampling of the e-mail I've been answering the past few days.

My best to you.

Boyd

Boyd,

I always watch your Land of 10,000 Stories segments with great interest and enjoy them all. However, I wanted to particularly thank you for your recent story on Tyler Shipman - my heart truly goes out to this young man and his family and was so touched by his courage and determination not to mention the generosity and dedication of all the strangers that came together to help him realize his dream.

As we all get caught up in the holiday madness, we tend to lose focus on the struggles and heartbreak that so many people are going through.

Do you know if there is any type of fund set up for Tyler and his family.

Thanks again for doing what you do in sharing such great stories.

David
Wow!

I don’t watch TV news much, but last night’s storm compelled me to watch Ch. 11.

What a terrific story you produced, about the Tyler project. I choked up again today, re-watching the video.

I’m not at all connected with the family or volunteers, but if I was I’d love to get a copy of that video story on DVD. Was that offered to the family?

I’d be happy to help pay for the cost.
To whom it may concern,

I just watched a news story on the local NBC twin cities affiliate, (KARE 11) about a group of people who re-built a Fiero for Tyler Shipman (see web link to story from KARE11.COM website below). I could not figure out how to contact any of the people through the "www.tylerstoy.com" website, so I am hoping you can extend this note to all who participated in this act of extreme kindness. I would just like to express how impressed I am with what all of you have done for this young man. In this day and age of ‘more me now’ this outpouring of kindness, effort, and energy; knowing that there will be nothing in return other than a smile on the face of one very ill young man; deserves a standing ovation. So as I stand and applaud you all for your good deed done, just know that I am not a Fiero owner, I do not know Tyler or anyone else in his family or friends, and I do not know any of you. And still, here I stand and applaud.

Thank you for doing a good deed, when someone desperately needed one!

Thom Ott
