Good morning everyone. I didn't see a section on the forum for intros, so I hope this is the right place to do so. My name is Chris and I live in Louisville, KY (I'm from the Lexington area, so go Cats!). I have loved Fieros since I was a wee lad and I finally acquired one a few weeks ago - a red 1986 SE with the V6 and 4 speed. She has 117,000 miles - I think. The speedo and odometer are not working, so I honestly cannot be sure. I've spent the last few weeks going through the basics, oil and filter, tranny oil change, new distributor, wires and plugs, have a new coil on order (the original has its post snapped off and it is running off of some other vehicle's coil). The overall plan is complete restoration and 2.8 rebuild, ending with a new paint job probably next year. I will post some pics when I have time.

From a personal standpoint, I'm 38 with 4 kids and an extremely supportive wife who likes cars. Hobbies (now) include this car, I'm an avid shooter, fishing, cycling and playing with the kids, of course. I look forward to being part of the community!

EDIT: Not sure why the image tags are not working - I must be doing something wrong. I've posted the links for now.
As requested, here are some pics of when I was bringing her home:

Welcome. The best way to post images here is to use PIP.

Yeah, you would need to use [img] tags, but the format of Dropbox won't allow the pictures to show up inline regardless, as the links are to a web page, even though they looks like a direct link to a .jpg file. Also, the [img] tags don't support HTTPS.

I agree with Patrick about using PIP.

Nope. Nope. Nope. You wouldn't get me within 10ft now that I know that.

You have been busy. VERY impressive for the rehab you have done so far. Looking good. As well as an ambitious list of to do's.

At some point you will need to do the same as I need to do with mine and tackle those dew wipes. It is on also my to do list.
