I spoke with TFF today and they are in fact doing any and all Fiero work. In fact all makes are under their care. Word on the street had been that they were going toward vettes, but they assured me that is not true.

I have also talked with Ed Parks recently and he and Rosie are doing fine also.

BTW, this is in Tony, Al about 15-20 miles north of Huntsville. Jeremy still does good Fiero work and has a lot of parts available.

Does Ed still have any Fieros?

I think that Ed has deleted all his Fieros. He has some serious vision problems, so I believe that Rosie chaufers him around.

TFF has been branching out. Since the Fiero population is dwindling, Jeremy had to do something to keep the lights on, but yeah. They still are very much in the Fiero business.

I'm happy that Ed and Rosy are doing well. Please give them my regards when you talk with them again.

When Ed Parks owned the Fiero Factory that place was jumpin. It was a time when many young folks with limited funds were able to buy and customize an affordable two seat sports car. We were at one of the Fiero Factory open house/flea market events in the late 90's and there were well over a hundred people there. Ed and Rosy were great hosts and those were great times, but as with everyone else age brings retirement. Now most Fiero owners are middle age, the next generation stays glued to their smart phones and has no idea what Pontiac was. The Fiero Factory changed hands and its good to hear that Jeremy continues offering Fiero parts and all make service. There is probably still a yard full of Fieros there but recent reports are that despite the low demand the prices there for parts are exorbitant.

I'm sorry to hear that! Please let him know that the Gilberts in PA say hello next time you talk to him.

Good memories. I met Rosie and Ed back in 2008 when I drove from upstate NY to Toney, Alabama for a 3.4 swap. I spent ten days at their place. I got to know them well. They are great people. Rosie is a sweetheart and Ed a nice guy. They were very hospitable and accommodating. They took me in as part of the family. Miss them both. It was during my stay there that Ed was negotiating with Jeremy on possible sale of the business. I got to meet Jeremy also. From time to time I've gotten parts from them. Now I'm in Vegas and fortunate to have the Las Vegas Fiero Yard in driving distance along with Dave’s talent, key person at the club and Fiero Yard. He's worked on both of my cars. Recently did a swap on my 87 GT
t-top. The Yard has quite a few Fieros and lots of parts- reasonably priced. Dave is a top-notch mechanic, on quite an authority on Fieros, and very accommodating. I count on him to keep my Fieros running.
I would definitely contact him for parts or advice.

Is that the same Dave who did most of the 4.9 swaps at the Fiero Factory? I know he had some health issues. I hope he's doing well.

I was guessing sardonyx, but I guess there could be 2 Daves.

No this is Dave (Sardonyx) At Vegas Fiero Club. Here are some pics of Las Vegas Fiero Yard and of Dave working on my 3.4 swap:

I also did know Dave in Alabama. Matter of fact, he did the first 3.4 swap back in 2008. Nice guy and he did have health issues at that time.

Ah, okay. Got it. Thank you.

Dave (in AL) also did my 4.9 swap, in like 2006.
To this day, you probably could pick up the car by the engine, and shake it until the body panels fell off, and the engine would still be solidly attached to the cradle.
