Well I don,t know what a Old Fart is. If someone ever called me that I punch him in the face. That being said, I'm 77, I drive a bad a$$ car,and this car is driven almost every day. Have a thirty-five yr old wife and a twenty-three yrs old mistress and they both pregnant. Just kidding about the women. I drive a 87 GT with a 3800SC series III that was install about four yrs ago. Well just finished changing the ICM, coil pack and the crank sensor and a case learn, and if you don't think that fun try it with the motor in the car. That being said now I have to change the idler pulleys. Well here is a couple of pic's of the old rust bucket.

63 in a couple weeks. Restoring our 86 SE we bought new, gave to wifes sister 14 years ago, they did not take very good care of it. Mostly cosmetic. Do most of my own work.
Also, build and ride my 81 Harley which is in a rigid frame, been like that for 27 years. Bought it new in 81.

old biker saying works for Fiero's too: "You don't quit working on your Fiero because you got old, you got old because you quit working on your Fiero"

Blessings,

The fiero takes my mind off everything for awhile. Gives me enjoyment and a sense of accomplishment even if fixing a minor thing. I haven't entered the big league yet - engines etc. That's good - I have all kinds of things to look forward to! Basically 60 going on 18.

IICool - I love your hood treatment. Is it also a functional vent for the radiator? Beautiful car.

I believe there is a law, or it may be part of the U.S. Constitution, I'm not sure. It actually makes it a federal offence to use the phrase “old fart” or the adjective “old” to describe anyone who is the proud owner of a Pontiac Fiero. It is actually part of the non-discrimination statutes that evolved during the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. Up held by the Supreme Court, it requires the offender to spend many hours detailing, waxing and polishing the injured party’s Fiero. The hours of labor are calculated by adding the age of the Fiero and the age of that Fiero’s owner. So, let that be a warning to all who would be ignorant enough to malign or slander those of us who care for and preserve these fascinating automobiles.

Woody you are one hundred percent correct, it is a functional vent. And thanks for the comment on the car. It follow me home along time ago like 1987.

Roaring up on 76 soon (January 10) and still drive my '84 Notchie with 3800SC. Recent back fusion surgery makes entry and exit rough in the car but things are getting better.

Old Fart? Not by my definition. My wife is 19 years younger than me and we've been married 34 years. At 56, she's still my sweet young thing, though.

Glad to see other people in our generation doing what they want to do at a ripe age.

I am 70 and had my 87 GT 5 speed for 12 years just wrecked it recently. It was stock but looked and ran good and I drove it regularly. Worth about $3,000 by comparable Craigslist ads before the wreck and I sold it for $600.
I still have a 87 Prelude Si 88 CRX Si and 95 del Sol Vtec all are stick shift.
I am getting lazier and pay a mechanic to do some work on my cars, I found a mechanic I like otherwise I would do more of the work.

Really sorry to hear about your fiero V8Vega. I hope your OK. I just finished a refresher driver course to get a break on insurance. Did it online too. Drivers of rochester,ny are scaring the bjeebers out of me on the the road. Twice been hit from behind (not the fiero gt). Glad I took the course! Again, thank God your OK. Anyway, thanks.

I turned 61 this month and I still think I'm 25. Although I don't mash the gas as often as I used to.

I am 63 and still tinkering with Fieros. Been at since 1992 and see no reason to stop. The younger guys in the NTFC help me from time to time with physical stuff. I enjoy being the old fart, as well.

Im 66 and still do just about everything I did at 30. I still do almost all my own car work. I retired more or less, but still do some work for old customers. I spent the summer and fall remodling the interior of my motorhome to suit me and my lifestyle more. I like roomy & comfy...I dont need to sleep 7.
