I don't think there are any shops that "specialize" in Fieros in the area. Most of us do our own repair work for the most part. You can join the local club at http://vafieros.com/ and ask for help on our mailing list. There are several members on the South side to connect with. If you've already joined the club via that site, then we'll get you added to the mailing list soon.

If you're looking for someone to do a larger project such as body work or an engine swap though, Oultaws Rod & Custom in Norfolk is definitely a great shop. They've been working on an LS376 swap for a member for a while, and I think it is almost 100% done now, if it isn't already.

Welcome to the madness. What are you looking to have done? You can do just about any/all maint on the engine, suspension, brakes yourself. But, as you may have found out, most shops these days plug in a computer, find out whats wrong, order the part and then install it. They can't figure out **** unless the computer tells them whats wrong. Your Fiero is about as close to "basic" as it gets. If you want to give it a try, post some questions in the Tech/Questions section, or do quick search to see if the problem has already been discussed.

As Rodney pointed out, if you want to hangout with some local Fiero guys, check us out. http://vafieros.com/

No specialty shops, just specialty forum members. I'm in Virginia Beach, I'm not as knowledgeable as most guys, but I have done a lot of stuff. Axles, ball joints, clutch, starters. There's not much on a Fiero you can't do yourself. AlanD, here on the forum, lives around the corner from me. If he doesn't know how to fix something on a Fiero, then it can't be fixed. What are you looking at getting done?

I've had good results with American Pride on route 17 in Grafton - they're honest and do good work.

Thanks for the replies. I am currently looking to for my first fiero. I am not that mechanically inclined, but wanted to try to do some of the repairs myself, and get the experience. I wanted to make sure there were repairs shops in my area once I finally get a fiero if I get in over my head with a repair.

Well you have 3 options in our area on Craigslist. 1 reasonably priced, and 2 very expensive ones, so I guess that really means only one option. If you were willing to travel, there are several more options within driving distance.
