As you all probably know the 2020 season has gone by with many issues and upgrades for my Automoda ... the impossible gear changing had come back many times, changed many things and to finally resolve the issue ordered and installed a NEW Fierostore 9.75 HD Clutch .. Problem solved








New issue was the leaks of the Automoda top .... decided I had enough and had a excellent fiero member make a copy of his uninstalled top and he sent it to me .... had a local shop install it ... What a difference .. no more leaks and wind whistle when travelling top up

This summer after completing all the upgrades and repairs we decided to install new tires all around, Firehawk Indy500 model. 235 front and 245 rear the ride is REALLY smooth !!




Hélène and I did at least 1000 miles with fiero friends .. Du to Covid19 no organised road trips or events were available... so we did some rides with good friends like Nick & Nathalie Fitzback (White 88 T-Top) also with Yann and his girlfriend (Red 86 GT)Had some really nice rides with them .. here are some pics...







And some more with Nick and his wife Nathalie

Well its a NEW Year and I wanted to give ya all an update on the MY Automoda Formula... I wanted to also answer a couple of questions that were asked by some of you.... I usually dont like to reveal this stuff but being its been over 4+ years and many of my Canadian friends want to get an idea on buying a Fiero on USA side how much total. So let me break this down..
A Fiero that is around 9K to 10k USD will cost you the below prices also depending on where it is located prices may change but for me then
Custom and Duties. 850.00$
Shipping to Levis. 2,000.00$
—————-—————————————
Total shipped to me 2850.00$ USD =. this is an estimated but make sure you get ALL the proper paperwork f4om the seller makes things ALOT easier


So now on January 3, 2021 I have invested for repairs and upgrades over 8.5k . I am POSITIVE I will NEVER get my money back ... but thats OK as the pleasure in owning and driving a 1 of 35 kind of fiero is PRICELESS. There are alot more to be done to her to make it JUST PERFECT. In the next post I will recap what has been done since I got her and what is in the works for this winter.....
