I was wondering, did any photo's ever get posted showing this car that was found in a junk yard ?

Guys and Gals,
Due to some extra-ordinary good luck, and the good graces of the owners of the junkyard, it appears that this little blue car WILL be saved! I won't believe it until it's sitting safely in Ed Parks' Fiero Factory, but it looks like it will happen. My Greatest Thanks to the Owners and Managers of this junkyard (which I will tell you all more about when this is all over) for cutting through the red-tape and making this very special exception. The car will be lovingly restored by Ed so that it's unique place in the Fiero History will be preserved for all to see. I can hardly believe we have saved it, and will not uncross my fingers until it's safe and sound.
In the meantime, thanks for all the great information from y'all, and you'll be hearing more about this in the near future.
Keep looking, they made 4 more 1985's in unusual colors, maybe they are in your neighborhood. Don't take anything for granted, because you just NEVER KNOW!!!
My Best To All,
John Willhoff 88 Database Nut (770) 578-6556 JWWillhoff@aol.com John.Willhoff@LMCO.com


Did this ever happen ?

I saw it at Ed's in 2004.

Edit to add....The car had not been disassembled when I saw it, body panels were in place.

I asked about it seven years ago;

http://www.fiero.nl/forum/A...130314-1-087496.html

The latest confirmed update was from 'mattwa' whom confirmed that The Fiero Factory was still in possession of the car.

I really hope this car hasn't been completely lost. While I would imagine the remote possibility of legally getting it back on the road would be a nightmare it would be one of the rarest Fieros to actually possess, considering it is the only currently surviving example of a factory "test color" car.

I thought that in another thread, maybe possibly a picture had been posted? A bunch of years ago. But maybe I am mis-remembering it. Would be a tough one to find using the Search though.

I spoke to Jeremy recently and the car has had most panels removed and is sitting in outside storage. When I pulled it out of the junkyard it would have been a daunting restoration job, one that I thought only Ed could pull off. But now it would be so uneconomical as to be absurd to do. It would be much better to go find one of the others that are out there and start with one of them. I wish I had kept it...

And, from the new Fiero reference book "All 1984-1988 Pontiac Fiero Colors Codes and Quantities", we now know there were factory Blue Fieros built in 1987, 1985, AND other years. They're out there waiting to be found and saved!

It's killing me that there's a 105 page book on JUST color options for five year models of Fieros.

It's not JUST color options... as the rest of the title indicates.
