I've been noticing a whole bunch of new members on here lately. I'd like to share the fact that I think this is great news to our Fiero comunity, . its so good to see that our hobbie and huge interest in this unusual car is increasing, and not dwindleing away. I forsee a very promising future for this car, and a continual rise in its value. Many of us have more than one. Heck, more than two in some cases.
all good news to hear and see. The stories are fun to read too. I also enjoy the pictures. Keep 'em commin….

Thank you for the post. I’ve been around the interwebs for a long time, even admin on a few forums. This community is a great resource and welcoming to new members. I’m certainly glad to be here. Not all forums are as welcoming or helpful as PFF has been.

As a long time Fiero enthusiast I have noticed that some new people are coming into the hobby but many of them are returning members; people who left the hobby some time ago and are coming back into it. In any event its good news for the hobby.

Funny you should mention the returning members. I'm back after almost 15 years away from the Fiero world (84SE-Stock was my username years ago).

The itch to have another Fiero has grown soo great that I've decided to get another one this coming spring/summer and get back into the hobby.

It saddens me that some of the original big posters are no longer around and posting.

Yes I miss those posts as well. IIRC there were a few guys in Nova Scotia that were posting several years ago. You probably know Anthony Cook who may have moved on and I recall that there was also a guy from nearby PEI that used to post. Had some really good folks down this way posting as well that have disappeared, but nothing is forever and everything changes. I still consider this the best Fiero resource around. Welcome back .

Thanks for the welcome. Glad to be back in a "fun car" (as my kids call it) after 21 years away.

Knew Anthony and his girlfriend at the time Lori fairly well. I was thinking about dropping down to see him and pick his brain like I used to soo many years ago.

Now all we need is for the new members to actually STAY for many years. It seems recently new members ask a few questions and then disappear.

Hey Dennis.....I'm origionally from New Jersey. Born and raised in Sayreville. You mention some old members. Did you know, or ever go to Jim Gilberts place out in Pennsylvania? If anybody is/was a Fiero guru , believe me, its Jim Gilbert. I was running back and forth to his place when he was rebuilding my " amazing" ( as we called it ) yellow Formula. Jim would also hold these "classes" where everybody would come over and he'd show how to repair popular Fiero problems. What a great guy ! I even went to Carlile with him back in 2000. I wonder what ever happened to him.

Good to see my new guy seniority is going up! 😋

The Fiero is a great car, many kids (hah, I say kids, meanwhile they are all around my age, mid 20s) these days have no idea what it is when they see mine at cruise nights and shows, a lot of them freak out when they hear it's a Pontiac. My friends all want one after they drive mine, the appeal is there... I don't think the hobby is going anywhere.

What I do have a concern for is parts... Only time will tell if sources and venders we love, and honestly, take for granted will stick around and be supported by future parts makers many years in the future... Guys like Rodney and FieroStore are key parts suppliers for us, and it has crossed my mind what will happen to us younger guys in the distant future, when these guys retire...

Not that anyone here needs smoke blown up their a$$es, but I think this forum is a huge part of making Fiero ownership viable. The archive of good info is unsurpassed. Several times, I have searched here and found threads from 10 or 15 years ago and applied them today.

Facebook groups are nice, but there is a bunch of misinformation there. Lots of piping in with bologna that has long since been debunked on this forum. Plus, its not readily available for research later.
