Hey guys-

We'll set off at 11:30 am from the Las Vegas Fiero Club. Feel free to show up a little early.

The starting address is

Hope to see you there!

I might want to go......But I want to also drive by the location of the PepCon explosion.....That was a rocket fuel plant that exploded in 1988......They had been storing the solid fuel for the Shuttle boosters (After the Challenger explosion stopped flights) and a fire started......Watch the video of it....I had to watch it every year during my Haz Mat refresher training......The area is completely built up now (And no, there is not a rocket fuel plant there now!)

Hey...I need to add that my right rear brake caliper just started leaking.....I know there is a Fiero salvage yard in LV......Could I possibly get a rebuild-able caliper from there? Who should I contact?

If you have an 88, I just went through the same thing. If you cannot find
one to rebuild, then try Napa. They were able to find me one from the east
coast. They also said there were a couple located in Philadelphia and this
was just about 2 months ago. It was $80 plus $40 for deposit.

I tried looking for the site of the PepCon explosion on Google Maps, watched a couple of documentaries to see if I could notice some landmarks but came up short. There was a holding pond and some train tracks in the general area, but I couldn't find the pond; I bet they filled it in.

I called the Restaurant at Bonnie Springs and they're going to need a reservation; just so that they can provide enough tablespace for our group. So, by January 10th, please let me know if you'd like to be in on this and with how many attending.

Thanks, I hope everybody has a Merry Christmas!!

To add: I posted this on the Las Vegas Fiero Club Facebook page. To avoid confusion, use either here OR that page to let me know about reservations, I get easily confused

Thanks!!!

Hey! That's my line..."Easily confused".....I'm an ex-gov-ment workre....If I was any dumberer, I would have been qualified to be a politician.....

I found the (Basic) address for the Pepcon Explosion...."Corporate park Drive" in Henderson circles the site...which is completely built up now.....So really "Nothing to see....Just move along..."

I don't know if I'll be ready for the drive- I was able to finally pick up a caliper, but I am "In process" rebuilding it...then have to install, bleed and test.....

cvxjet - any luck with your caliper? I tried rebuilding a rear last year for an 88; did more damage than good because I didn't have the right shop equipment. Fortunately, I found one at AutoZone and seems to be holding up.

Brenda0 and boysatt - we'd love to have you

FastRed - Unfortunately, I have to work Friday night; I won't be able to do anything. Some hotels near the Fiero Club are the Cannery Casino on I-15 and Craig, the Sunrise Inn on I-15 and Cheyenne. There's a La Quinta on Nellis and Craig as well. The Aviation Inn looks to be the cheapest near Nellis AFB.

We've got about 10 or so people coming along, should be a good time!!!

2 of mine will meet us there. I think Matt's family will meet us there as well.

Here's the final list that I've reserved for, if my math is right, that's 20 people!!!!

sardonyx247
fast red +1
mr corean +1
Brenda0
boysatt +1
darbysan +1
Fierobsessed +3
me +3
Rich +1

I made the reservation for the above, however, if you find yourself wanting to go but didn't reserve in time, call Bonnie Springs at 702-875-4191, ask to be transferred to the Restaurant, and add your name to the reservation of the Las Vegas Fiero Club.

Google Maps puts the trip from the Club to the restaurant at about 1 hour and 8 minutes so we'll have to leave the east side of town no later than 11:40. We can also stop at the Red Rock overlook if we have time to burn. The weather is looking good for the weekend, should be fun!!

Just to let you know also I'm a tour guide here in Vegas and one of my doors is Red Rock Canyon so if you'd like me to tour you whIle we are there it's my pleasure to do. I know where the visible Oasis spring is and the Indian handprints. I also know all the stories. Let me know. See you soon

Not quite late night surgery, but I am changing an idler pulley that is making a bit of noise and probably going to try a couple of code improvements. Other than that it’s running great!

I've got hood, headlights, radiator, AC condenser, front bumper, rear wheels, brakes, and struts off. Good thing we're not doing cars and coffee at the crack of dawn this time, lol.

They both looked good and sounded good, thanks for pulling the late nighters!

Here are a few photos I took at the meetup. I think all had a good time, cool place to go.


Chris' Turbo Northstar with an NSX transmission.






Vito's SE



Mike's T-Top GT



Matt's Turbo DOHC





Barbara's Indy




Group shot



All in all we had 20 people come, 8 Fieros. Thanks again for coming out!
