Across the way from Alton Parkway in the parking lot of Taco Bell Headquarters, Ford Design and Mazda North American Operations. The Corvettes typically get there around 5 30 AM to get the good spots. By 830 everyone is late for the exit. If you're coming in from the north, you'll typically pass some Lambos and Porsches getting off at Alton.
Long ass day. I'm already paid up and looking forward to it!
Sorry I couldn't make it, I just moved to a new house and haven't had a lot of time to work on the car. I replaced a split in-tank fuel line yesterday but the car still barely runs... hoping it's just spark or injectors. Might be a few more weeks before it's drivable again :-(.
Who's working on a new '88 front wheel bearing setup?

Have to give a HUGE West-Coast SHOUT-OUT to everyone who came the Annual Fiero's of San Diego BBQ & Car Show this year!!! What a FUN day, we had a great turn out of not just Fiero owners, but also their friends, families members, & loved ones. We are really happy to see this event change from a small group of guys meeting to kicking tires/ talking shop, and grow into this family and friends environment where everyone is a part of what Fiero owners love. So to all the friends & family who came to our Annual BBQ & Car show thank you and we hope you had alot of FUN!
Fakhri & Gregorio would like to Personally thank Larry & Mike for arriving early & helping to set up, we would like to also thank Chris & West Coast Fieros for contributing awesome prizes for our raffle, we are very appreciative for your support and friendship.
Okay now for what you have all be waiting for
FIERO FRIENDS & FAMILY
FIERO'S OF SAN DIEGO ANNUAL BBQ & CAR SHOW; THE LARGEST GATHERING OF FIEROS & FIERO OWNERS ON THE WEST COAST!!!
We had a great turn out,, and feel like we are starting to get a solid tradition going here again on the west coast. FYI, you're not going to have to wait for next year to see us, we had some great discussions about meeting on 3 occasions through out the year (including the Annual BBQ & Car Show) . The Idea we have 2 specific meets for the SoCal /West Coast Fieros, were we can meet in the Orange County/PCH Area for A lunch and a short cruise to keep the momentum continuing throughout the year.

Glad y'all had a great turnout. Hope to see some of y'all at the Coast Run. If possible, can someone update the info on the FOSD website? It's from 2011. Thanks. Here is the new info.
For folks planning to attend the Coast Run next month, please take a few minutes and fill out the registration form if you don't mind. This helps me plan the stops we need to make and know how many to plan for meals.

We have a great time on this event and have had people come from as far away as Colorado and Texas. We try to make this an affordable event so people can come have a good time without putting a strain on their bank account. The hotel helps out with a $99 rate for the entire event weekend.
As you know, shopping is slim in San Simeon (as is cable TV and cell phone service! So we should have a nice weekend unencumbered by the rest of the world). With those prices we can still afford to put gas in the cars so come on down! And don't forget those dollar bills for the charity raffle. As always, the proceeds go to St Jude Children's Research Hospital. http://www.stjude.org
It looks yall get a pretty good turnout in a beautiful. Makes me wish I were closer. This is great motivation though for me to get moving forward with my car. There aren't nearly as many fellow owners in my area though. There's always Cruisin The Coast in Mississippi though, so who knows!
Okay Fiero peeps, lets get this going. As we do every year, we start out the guest list, and ask that you just cut and past the list, add your name and plus how ever many you will be bringing with you. Remember full details are on the first post of the tread, here we go!
For anyone in the Southern California area. This Saturday's get together.
This is a reminder everyone. we are a week away.
