If I had space I'd have my present 86 SC3800 as my runner and another to play around with, with no deadline to finish. maybe a turbo or a V8 of some kind.

awesome, I've never owned a page before.

Just a estimate but I believe that about 50% of the registered members are active. Joining is 2000 we have seen many people come and go. Things like finances, health,accidents, changing situations all can influence a hobby. The Fiero hobby has evolved from being a young persons interest in owning an inexpensive sports type vehicle to a more mature audience interested in collector vehicles, modified cars and hot rodding. I miss some of the creative members of old but nothing is forever!

I've been around a while. With three Fieros, it is hard to do a lot of driving as two of the three I've spent $1500 on each for maintenance items this year and my 87 is going in later in the month to get it ready for Run to the Hills in September.

I drove this on the Power Tour this year as I couldn't face three week and 5000 miles in a Fiero. After having a Fiero for 28+ years my bones don't like that ride for long distance anymore.

From what I've seen its beginning to turn back to the younger, but needs encouragement along the way.

I think this forum has a large following of lurkers. With so many years of answers posted, sometimes a new post isn't needed.

I'm more of a lurker these days. I've still got the Fiero, drive it regularly and plan on doing a nice 350 install this winter.
I'll probably be asking a few questions. Then I'll make it look nice again.

I lurk quite a bit. Only 300 posts over 9 years but I open general chat & tech pages at least several times a week for a look. Down to one Fiero from two and the remaining Fiero is essentially mint so not a lot to do on it except to drive and enjoy. Working on a 65 right now, kind of a trip into the past, so cool.

BR's,

Mark

If you love to drive and enjoy your Fiero; MAFOA holds three car show events in PA. Lititz, Carlisle and Neffsville. The Carlisle show is IMO the worlds best Fiero event but the other two offer a bit smaller, relaxing lower key environment. Outside of the Friday nights Cruise event in Somerville and an occasional dinner trip, most of my driving is to MAFOA shows and they are enjoyable. There is also "Traveling Pete" Bransky's Fiero cruises. Check them out. .

Just happened to be on a rare visit back here. Sold my last Fiero couple of years ago and stop by occasionally. Glad to see a bunch of familiar names in this thread.

edit: P.S. Did see a nice red Zimmer Quicksilver being driven on the streets of Greenville, Tx about a month ago. That's the last Fiero related vehicle I've seen in a while.

Old member here still kicking. I never was a big poster, but I always tried to help out when I saw someone heading down the wrong path. I had a few engine swaps over the years and many Fieros bought and sold, but I still manage to hold on to two ifofhem with a family. I met many good friends from here in the past. I still see a lot of great information being shared as if it is tribal knowledge. Which goes to show the value of this forum. Sure there are search functions to find just about anything, but if we all rely just on searches you will find everyone relying more on a search then reaching out to others with the same interest. I always get bummed out when I see a post result in "do a search for that as it has been answered before". That's no fun, but I guess in the beginning everyone was building the archives that can now be searched. In any case it's always nice to stick around and see how the community has grown

Hi Dennis, one of these days I am going to get off my dead *** and go to one of these things. I used to take the Fieros to the Flemington shows but not done that for awhile. Was a lot more fun when the Union hotel was open. Know about Pete's cruises, maybe do one of those too.

BR's,

Mark
