When the forecast came out a week before it looked ominous, but we had good weather Thursday and Friday for the cruises and fun outings, and any sprinkles stopped in the morning on show day with plenty of time to towel off the cars before show start leaving a great day for a show! Warm and summery with a light breeze. As usual lots of good times. I recommend attending this show if you are able haven't yet.

A few pics:

Looks like the weather turned out almost perfect..... figures......

Lost the alternator on the T-top less than a mile from home, so did not make it this year and really wanted to be there.
Really put a damper on the day, and needless to say the wife was so ummmmmm..... happy?

Now she won't trust either GT for a while, I tried to explain about them being old, and needing attention like I do, and that only brought the usual "wife look".

Alternator on it's way (and you know I am just "giddy as a school girl" about replacing it .....

Will be at Fierorama come heck or high water, even if I have to walk!
Had the Cannon all set and ready to go to post the most spectacular pictures of Fiero's ever.... sigh.....

I would love to see more pics if anyone has them!

The 88 alternator can be replaced by turning it *just right* and pulling it out through the wheel well. You'll need to remove the wheel and the splash shield.
It will likely be a test of your vocabulary, however. (This is the voice of experience.)

BTW... I lost my alternator somewhere between Florence and Lexington Kentucky, on the way home from Pontiac. (The 20th)
Made it all the way to Knoxville.

LOL, yup, and this ain't my first Fiero alternator rodeo.

I actually thought about keeping going, but knew for sure nobody there would even talk to me once I said I needed help replacing the alternator.... and I can't blame them, and I kept getting that "wife look".

If you do decide to make it up next year, I will be there even if I have to drive the "PT Loser"!
I wanted so bad to put actual humans to the forum names, and perhaps share a beverage or two at Nigs!

Auto is a bit harder, but if you have a 5 speed you will be fine. Have someone help you push the bolt on the top through where the alternator swings from and it makes it that much easier. Hard to do when you are under the car holding the thing up...

Railshot and Raydar we'll see ya next year. Hopefully in Fieros!

I know some folks who would have gladly helped you change your alt there too
Past years there have been tanks dropped, suspension work, etc.

Ha! I saw your cameo, about halfway through. I didn't see The Rattler, but perhaps I missed it. Is he OK?

He was there, but out of costume. Must've been too hot for the red racing suit!

Looks like a bunch of people stayed in the parking lot and skipped the cruise; I don't know why.

I am hearing that the two toned Mera seen in these pics at the show was for sale. Any chance someone inquired about the price?
