Hi y'all. My name is Joe from Spartanburg SC. New to this forum and I'm hoping to learn alot from the knowledgable folks here. I've finally purchased an 87 Fiero GT Fastback after many many years of dreaming of owning one. A high school buddy of mine bought a notchback, brand new, back in '84 and ever since I saw his, I've wanted one. And now I can finally say I do. Mine is all stock with the 2.8L w/88K miles. Has all the bells and whistles that came with that model year. I just had all the body work done and a fresh coat of black gloss paint put on her. New 17" BF Goodrich G-force Sport tires and after market rims. She turns alot of heads around town.
I want to thank Cliff for accepting me into his HUGE family of proud fiero owners.
Thank you :-)

P.S. Wish I could post a picture of her but, I'm not quite sure how to that...yet.

If you wish for your images to stick around... use PIP

Awesome! I'm no longer the newest owner around here! I bought my 87 GT FB one week ago and have already started the restoration. I've spent WAY too many hours on this forum learning more than I ever knew could be known about these cars. One thing I have found is that it is a VERY tight community. I've had several instances where I see something posted on the Fiero group on Facebook, and then figure out that it's the same guy who is posting here. I just realized that I bought a set of tail lights from a longtime member, even though I turned up his website via a Google search. It's a small world!

Thanks y'all for the welcomes and also thank you for letting me know about PiP too. I'll check it out tomorrow and hopefully I'll have a couple pictures up on here of my pride and joy for y'all to see. :-)

Sorry-- slight thread hijack--

I can't view probably 70% of the images posted here, and I think they're all the PIP images. I tried downloading PIP, but sill can't see the images. What am I doing wrong?

Having PIP installed on your computer is definitely not required to view the images.

Find out if it's a firewall issue. Get the URL of a PIP hosted image (or any image) you can't see and go directly to it's hosting site. Can you see it now?

Here, I'll make it even easier. Can you see the following PIP hosted image?



If not, go HERE.

Now can you see it?

I can see it... at least I think I do. I'll never look at my neighbors cows the same way again.

No, can't see it embeded in the post, nor can I see it if I open the link directly. I use Chrome as my primary browser, but tried to copy/paste the link into MS Edge and got the same result. I'm not running anything beyond standard Win10 firewall/AV protection, and have already tried disabling adblock on this page.

I run Adblock Plus as well, so it's not that.

I dunno, might be the Win10 firewall/AV protection or your server.

It's unusual that someone can't access any posted PIP images.
