My fiero has been down all winter. I bought a 2.8 replacement cradle and all so it should have been easy. Then the cold and snow came. So I worked, ten minutes here and there. I am down to hooking up connectors, fixing exhaust, and finishing water pump install (wish I had thought of water pump earlier). How does everyone feel when their fiero is down? I feel a bit obsessed.

From personal experience, I can give you two stories.

One; I was doing both head gaskets, really anxious as she was down for two days.
So I stayed up until 9AM the next morning finishing it up, flood lights on all night, music going a little, Firepit ablaze.

Another, ordered a throttle body to replace my old one, and each time something was amiss, I believe I was up until 3AM, in the middle of November changing out throttlebodies one after another until it went smoothly.

I was pissed that I had to drive the car in the rain. Now it is in the garage with the fan and a dehumidifier . I hate when my car gets dirty.

I have taken naps under my car when I didn't want to stop working on it.

boostdreamer that is great. I can't stop laughing. I almost took a nap under mine the other day. I guess that is a bit obsessive.

The word you are looking for is "passionate". There is no treatment for it. They have drugs for "obsessive"

that does sound better. Although right now I am having a few different choice words. Trying to compress rear calipers to reinstall them. I am being "passionate" though.

I have no problem with fixing and driving an 87 fiero gt. My wife had to come out and ask me how long are you going to work on it and are you ever going to come in a few times but I got the job done. It was 15 to 20 degrees and I thought I was working in a freezer at times. The truth is the fiero has conditioned me to work at any temperature, under any conditions. I told a friend what I had done this winter and he said there is something wrong with me. I was moving a jack stand under the car while laying there and hit myself in the face in the eye with it. WOW. Came inside to get something and my wife asks what happened to your eye? I said what eye. She said the one on your face! At work they asks me how bad I got whopped. The fiero got me through this brutal winter. Passion is the correct word for the insanity I experience at times when something is amiss with the fiero. Can't really expain any of it, but damn this is a good time!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks

The '84 SE I got on 08May1984 is still a daily driver, except in wet salty winter conditions. It's never been unlicensed - 30th birthday coming up! I just got 'new' '84 SE seats & dashboard in great condition...
