I finally got my 84 Fiero Sport running. I've been rebuilding it since November of last year. My uncle bought the car new in 84. I remember riding in it when he first got the car. In 1996 the timing gear teeth all broke off. The car sat behind my grandparents garage until last November when I towed it home. After about $1800 in parts, blood, sweat, and tears ... its alive again. I will admit was a challenge without a garage or even concrete at my dad's farm. I rebuilt the motor in a mini barn in the middle of winter. Driving it home on the old curvy back roads today made it all worth while. I still have paint and a few things to go but I'm just enjoying what I've been working on the last 8 months.

It's always great to see when someone finally gets a project going after so long. I'm in the same boat as you pretty much, I picked up the car last August, and I just got it driving around last week. Good job on it and hope you get everything going the way you want it to now. Do you have any pictures of it?

I'm new to the forum. Is there instructions on how to post pictures? I have a lot of pictures of the Fiero on my "semi" smart phone.

It is easier to do it on a computer. What I did wss set up a (free) Photo Bucket account and upload the pictures there. That will create a URL for the photo. Once you have copied the URL, just click the image button that you see when you are commenting on here ..and a little window will open with a place to paste the URL. Bingo ...pic is on PFF

After the .jpg, it's no longer an image & it's just a url.

Homemade 4x4 engine hoist in a mini barn. I used a 8N Ford tractor to move the subframe around

I was expecting a John Deere with a front end loader, that is how I did mine!

Thanks. I wish I would have had a front end loader. I had a homemade platform. Wheels fell off the homemade wooden dolley as I rolled it under the car. I had to line it up with a big crow bar and 2x4s. lol Its been a challenge to say the least. Next time I will have a shop and car lift. I should be good mechanical wise for awhile. It was my first complete engine rebuild. Thankfully it turned out great. A/C is next on my list. It still amazes me how many people don't know what a Fiero is. Next person who says "what is that?" I'm going to respond "A 80s Spaceship" The Fiero is not well known in backwoods Missouri.
