Hello together,

I would like to share with you my short story.
My 1988 5 Speed was bought original in 1991 as a new car here in Germany by the first owner. Till 2002 he was in charge of the owner ship and drove a couple of miles up and down south to north and back on the German Autobahn. But as the owner got issues with it and the engine made a knocking noise and he got older and older, the owner wanted sale it. I meet him in about 1999 on a US car meeting in Stuttgart and we became friends, so as he came up with the idea to sale the car he contacted me first and it came to a sale in 2002. But the car sad in storage with a broken engine till winter 2010/2011. Then I took the time (after other projects and life situations) and fixed the issue (which is documented here in PFF) . But I lost contact with the owner till a day in September 2015 when he first saw his car since 13 years back on the road in pristine condition catching peoples eyes at a sunny day.
Well this was a great moment of my life to see the happiness in someones eyes and a great reason why me/we do what we do in our spares time and holidays.

So thank you for your time.


AND boys and girls and have a wonderful Christmas holiday┬┤s and keep up driving and repairing to make you and other people happy around the world !!!!!!!!




And remember:
You're never the owner, only a curator for the next generation !

Good story and a nice looking car you have there. I'm guessing there's not a lot of Fiero's in Germany, what kind of comments do you get?

It appears to me that Santa and Mrs. Claus own a Fiero. I always knew you shaved in the summer.

Thanks for sharing.
