Thank you so much guys!!!!! I'm truly humbled! As for the early reveal, you'll see below. lol.

Back story:

The throwout bearing went to crap rendering the car inoperable.I lost my storage of the car about a month ago or two and had it worked out to trailer the car over to my buddies house (gtxbullet) to try and get throwout bearing replaced (along with a simple engine refresh). I put 2-300 in parts (all I had) and thought I could get it on the road. Well, the throwout bearing was really hosed and I ended up breaking the trans housing trying to get it off the clutch fork. Needless to say, I didn't have any more money for a trans. I ran out of money and did not have storage for the car, so my only option was to part it out. Steve (gtxbullet) agreed to part it out for me while the car stays at his place for a reasonable share of the sales. Well, unbeknownst to be, instead of parting it out, the Fox Valley Fiero's worked together to do all this!! So two weeks ago, I stopped by Steve's and my car wasn't there. Lol. I was like... ok..... he told me that someone was cutting some frame pieces off, and would return the car when they were done. I was like, and you trust them? He goes "Sure!" So this weekend is a long weekend for me, and I finally have time to work on it again, I figured I could take a bunch of parts off this weekend and try to sell them next weekend at Fierorama. My car still wasn't at Steves. Lol. I don't think Steve could come up with a good cover story anymore, hence the early reveal. Lol. I was totally in shock. I still am. I'm heading up there today. Hope to get a lot of pictures, and put in some elbow grease as well.

Thank you all so much!

Dude, that's awesome! It's a great feeling isn't it? Knowing that you have friends like that, and that you mean enough to them for them to do this for you. I don't know what you did, but if the whole club and then some is helping out, I'd say you deserve it.

It feels fantastic! These guys are amazing!

So I was utterly amazed at how much metal work they did! My little car has a new rear end! I didn't take a picture of it, but Rob showed me what was left from what he cut off the car. VERY little. It's sad that there was more of my frame in his shop vac than in the scrap metal pile! So Rob already posted the pictures of the frame transformation, which is completely amazing. He also reconstructed my trunk! It is solid now!

What we don't have pictures of is the engine! Oh, is it pretty. I could eat off the thing! Honestly, that engine looks like I've always wanted it to look like! Not a spec of dirt on there, it's not pissing out the usual quart or two per oil change, and it's all a beautiful black. Ta-da!

I didn't get pictures of it until it was already dark out. But it looks great! We're putting the engine mount and other accessories on it, getting it ready for the replacement four speed. And about 2 hours of trying to align things later....

It's on!! Ok, so maybe not two hours, but when you're holding the transmission trying to get it to align up with the engine, it can feel like two hours! (we all had our turn ) That trans is clean too! I'm excited to see how the four speed drives out!

We pulled the axles and strut towers off the old cradle. Once the axles came out, there was an oil spill that would have made exxon jealous! I thought I had a picture of it, but I guess not. Lol.I think the club would do well to buy stock in kitty litter

Here's the new cradle, all ready for the new parts! Cut off what was left of the old mounts on the space frame side, took of the V-6 mounts, and now its ready for the Duke! Despite the rust laying on the ground, it is a very clean cradle!


And this is how Wisconsinites do car work. With a beer in one hand, and Liquid Wrench in the other!

Reminds me of a joke. 98% of all people yell "Oh S***!" right before they crash their car. The other two percent are from Wisconsin and say "hold my beer and watch this!"

Aaaaand, last but not least, beauty shot of Robs chop top. I think it is a requirement that everyone sees this car in person at least once. Beautiful!


I had a great time up there, and was thrilled to see my car again! I really thought it was halfway parted out by now. lol. I will be up there again on Monday, and will come back with more pictures!

I either missed it or it wasn't posted, but is the engine rebuilt or new? Is there any modding on it or is it stock?

Edit: Just saw that it was rebuilt.. DOH!

Today was a perfect day for car work. Awesome weather! I started my 2 hour drive north with this. I think it's a landing platform for alien aircraft, but I really am not sure. I don't know why my camera makes it look so small, it's really quite big from the road.

Then lots of these:

And a camel...

Then I arrived at Robs. It's on all fours! Yay!

They did a lot of work in the last two days!

Look at that battery tray! Very nice. I had my last battery get eaten by the water pump. That shall happen no more! (Side note to Rob: I never did tighten down the battery. I was too eager to hear it run)

Hmmmm.... Where did all these wires/plugs/vacuum lines go?

It's coming back to me....

Now I remember!

My tire valve didn't work, so I had to install another

Aaaaannnndddd....... IT RUNS! (the haze is oil burning off the exhaust. Yes, it is running in this picture)


It took me and Rob a couple trips to Autozone to get all the little things we needed, but we got it going! I was so happy to hear her purr again! And I don't think I've ever, in my time that I've owned her, heard that duke sound so quiet! These guys did a fantastic job! No exhaust leaks, no oil leaks, no (after a cap change) coolant leaks, no leaks of any kind! I don't think my car has done that either in the 8 or so years I've owned her!

Then me and Rob had some time to kill, so we gave it a chop and then I drove it home:

Tommy must be a terrific guy for you guys to go this far and you guys are special too. I have to say there's not that much left of the original car. I think I would have replaced the car rather than fix it.

I hope your Dad pulls through! Was that your Mom and Dad I saw drop your kids off on Friday? He looked in great health then...

I'll keep him in my thoughts and prayers.

And don't worry about my car, there's plenty of time for that. Let us know how your Dad does.

Yea, it's not hard to break the case on the Isuzu, just ask my buddy Alex. The 4-speed you put in there won't have as good economy, but it'll sure make that car accelerate faster! Great job all, I love seeing builds like this.

Thanks! Looks like it might be a good place to go hunting for the front plate bracket I need for my 88.

To make it easier for you to find (via Mapquest, for example), just be aware their name has only one "b" in it, and only one "s" in it: Gibson Iron Metal & Auto.

Another place to try is the The Fiero Factory in Toney, Alabama ( http://thefierofactory.com ).

Unlike Gibson Iron Metal & Auto here in Neenah, Wisconsin, The Fiero Factory in Toney, Alabama, is a huge, Fiero-focused salvage yard.

Of course, for you, driving that far would make even less economic sense than driving to Neenah.

However, The Fiero Factory in the past always has been able to simply mail to me the right Fiero parts that I needed.

By the way, welcome to Pennock's Fiero Forum!

Thanks for both the info, and the welcome! My Formula is actually Wisconsin based, she lives about an hour west of where you're at in Menasha, so a trip to Gibson's wouldn't be far at all. Hope to join you on one of your club outings once she's cleaned up.

I'm flopping around on color choices. One of the colors I wanted was an orange-red (more orange than red) that would be quite bright. This is kind of close:

What do you guys think?

Going to get some suspension parts this afternoon for the car. Have to order a coolant hose to, as that's leaking pretty bad now (yes, I know you told me to do that long ago rob :P). Oh, and I want to replace both tranny mounts. The firewall mount is bad I do believe (might as well do them both, though the rear most mount looked very new. was it new?)

Soon here guys I'll be looking to get her painted. So stay tuned! (and helping hands is always a plus )

Ok, this color is EXACTLY what I would want, if only it were the actual color instead of a phosphorescent glow. Though the glow stuff is pretty cool, I wont lie.

Otherwise, the other direction that I was contemplating was a light metalic blue. I fell in love with the color when it was on the BMW Z3 (think golden eye bond film). Then I saw one of these on the road and I thought this was what I wanted, only the racing stripes would be off center, with one wide one and one skinny one:


So what do you guys thing? A bright red orange (heavy on the orange) or a light metalic blue?
