So, is there any value in these old newsletters? I also have some Michigan Fiero Club and Fiero Owner Club mags (not a lot of those).

Just wondering if this is something I should throw out on The Mall. I have to inventory what I have.

I would think they are copyrighted. I believe Matt is still around (not in Fieros though).

Ah yes, Fiero News by Matt Gruber, I do remember those. In fact, I remember sending him questions, and he printed them in a few issues. We used to get them mailed to our homes back then. I still have a few bunch of issues packed away.

Not a ton of unknown info but still interesting to read what was going on back then.

Not much value as many of them were copied and passed around over the years so many have a set. But if you don't have them it is worth the time and money.

Someone gave me a set of originals years ago and I will read them once in a while for fun.

I am talking about a printed newsletter called "Fiero News"... created back before the internet (as we know it).

Yep I was just guessing the two were related, and maybe some people didnt know there was a website.

I have the Fiero Secrets for d-load but would love to add these if you are willing to send them to me. I can pay for shipping and can return them as well.

I have an incomplete set of Matt Gruber's WorldWide Fiero Club newsletters, "Fiero News". My set starts w issue no. 1 Aug., 1984 and my last issue is Spring. 1989. Can anyone tell me how many more issues there were beyond that point?

At one time there were two or three national Fiero Clubs but most turned out to be for profit businesses that benefited the owners. There was the FOCOA, FOA, IFC and a few others that all put out newsletters and/or magazines. Today we still have some good local clubs that publish some great newsletters and enewsletters. .

I have Matts news letters.

I also have all the FOCOA news letters.

Nothing new in them for long time owners but much for new people.

There were some other national clubs that were short lived.

The only one that lived long was FOCOA.

While some disagree the only real way to make a National club work well is to run it as a buisness buy someone who owns it. It tends to yield better results and a better product if the want to make any money. Too often open clubs run by a board end with arguments and only a few doing all the work.

The open clubs work better at a local level.

The best Shelby club is privately owned and one of the best clubs in the world. They provide a good product and services.

Even POCI has had their bumps over the years.

Anyways there will always be value in any of these club publications as for reference and documentation. They are not worth much money but the documentation holds value to the community that even the web can lose over time.

It is sad but as good as the web is it still loses a ton of info as web sites go down and much info can be lost.
