Just thought I'd shoot a little video while I was at The Fiero Factory yesterday, hope y'all enjoy. :P

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8k1TFuF2Ak

By the way, those guys are absolutely AMAZING. Jeremy Biggs had it for about two hours or so, and he could tell me every single little thing about the car; the list was 20-30 things I would've never known in a million years. For example, the car has been in a minor collision in the past, because the front assembly seems to have been replaced. Also, there are a few slight differences between the '88 V6's and the earlier V6's, and my car has had its engine swapped out with an earlier one at some point. Also, the brake pedal has been modified slightly, the fuel tank is in unusually good condition, there's something about the anti-sway bar that makes it want to over-correct (I think it's the end bearings or something), and just so many other things. They actually found a few things my other shop (that I had been taking it to) had messed up at one point or another, including not welding the exhaust back together all the way and mounting the fuel tank up incorrectly, and it seemed extensive after a while. In the five or so hours they worked on it yesterday, they got an incredible amount of work done, and I couldn't be more pleased. I'll definitely be taking it there again as often as I possibly can, given they're a tad busy around this time of year. And I would recommend the place to ANY Fiero owner, no matter where they live. At one point or another, it'd be smart to take your Fiero there, just to have them look it over. Great guys, unparalleled service, and a place as unique as the car itself.

OH! And I lucked out and found an original shift console cover that was less warped than the one I had. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the glovebox.

Great to see it again. I was getting a little dizzy from the camera operator moving to fast.

Is this like a Groundhog Day type of thing?

And quit calling it the Fiero Factory.
