Got the 4.3 CPI Fiero all loaded up with stuff to sell.

I am bringing:
Short Shifters, aluminum shifter knob, alternator brackets, 2.8 engine mount modified to work with 84-87 & 88's, two 2.8 air filter housings w/ K&N filters, 2.8 intake manifold (throttle body, upper, middle, injectors/fuel rair, lower) and valve covers, ported 2.8 exhaust manifolds, assorted rubber engine mounts, assorted dog bones (Jake can not have any!), some dot matrix interior, MTX electric crossover & 2 MTX amps (used), 2 Xplod amps and 2 Xplod 10" subs (all NIB).

Willing to make some deals on Saturday to keep all this stuff from coming back home with me.

Out Friggin Standing!!!! Someone to assist with all those burritos. Looking forward to seeing you again.

Doesn't look like Jake's gonna make this trip, he seems to have a stomach virus and that ain't good for anyone south of his north bound end.

Heck, bring it on down, someone will want it. May not get offered what you want for it but, you can't sell what ain't there.

I'm assuming you don't need any help transporting all that load? Plenty of room in the back of the truck.

Its all in the Fiero right now, but the front, trunk and passenger side are full. If anyone wants to ride shotgun I might have to put some stuff in the truck.

I might be able to get my hands on something very hard to find and bring it with me for sale but we will have to see by friday.
I have a few other things that will be there as well like a great set of 88 door hinges
a bright red rear gt bumper as well as a beachwood dash and dot matrx guadge face. as well as a few other things.
I think I will most likely walk out of this weekend with no extra cash but rather an exchange of parts
but that is ok by me.


Ok here is the something I was hinting to I will be bringing a brand new OEM PPG passanger side door glass in the box to the swapmeet.
I own a glass shop and I have looked for door glass's threw my vendors and the one I have is the only one they could find on the east coast.
the first 200.00 takes it, cash at the swap I will not pre sale this part. so I will see you all there.

The numbers were down as expected at this wonderful event. But, those that came made up for it in enthusiasm. We had a great time. Although I did almost have a tussel with one old fart from GA but, we decided for the sake of the event, we'd both hold our canes in reserve but at the ready.

Didn't see anyone taking pics either but, I'm hoping someone did and will post them here.
Best wishes to Ed and Rosy in their retirement and I'm asking all concerned to welcome back and support the new Fiero Factory man, Jeremy Biggs. Jeremy is a great guy and will do well for us if we support him.

So the Fiero Factory lives on, under the same name, in the same place, but under new (sorta) management? And there will be another "maybe last" Swap Meet next year?

Riiiight. But it didn't help that since Jake was indisposed this time, he couldn't be blamed for any unexplained tabs, or other "unfortunate incidents".

I wish Ed and Rosy well. There's nothing I can say that hasn't already been said. They're good folks, and deserve to kick back and have some fun.
I also don't believe that Ed and Rosy could have chosen a better successor than Jeremy. Anyone who knows Jeremy, knows what I'm talking about.

Speaking of Jake, he is on the mend and doing much better but, we're still poking a bunch of pills down his throat morning and evening. On a side note, Jake is now a TV star of sorts, my daughter took him to our local doggie grooming and bath shop. For $10.00 an hour, you can rent the doggie tub/shower and shampoo your pooch. Well, it just so happened that my daughter was giving Jake his bi-monthly bath and a TV crew was there filming their new commercial. Guess who got his mug all over the TV screen. He's so damn smug now, he'll barely talk to me.

BTW, some of those incidences Radar blamed on Jake were extreemely suspicious, Radar always seemed to be in the area when "Jake Let Loose". Coincidence, I think not.

It was a pleasure to meet the ones that I did and I'm sorry we left early, but we're trying to stay on our regular workout schedule. Things are going great in that aspect and we want to stick with it.


Ron....glad to have finally met you. You got me on the 300 cars though. When I got there I realized that most of them were the "parts" cars. You got the new guy..... Got to keep my eye on you apparrently.

Raydar....loved the car. One sweet ride!

Fieroguru.....nice meetin' you too. That is a sweet install with the 4.3. I forgot to ask you how it ran.

Ed....thanks for letting me take the 4.9 Fiero for a spin. That engine felt like it was supposed to be in that car.

I'll try to be more descriptive next time. I feel pretty sure I said that the Fiero Factory was a Fiero "Salvage Yard" that restored and re-powered Fieros. My guess is there are at least 300 Fieros there, don't think I ever said they were all road worthy. But, I apologize for any confusion. Tell you what, you make it up north to one of our Bluegrass Fieros Gatherings and I'll try to make it up to your lovely wife with a Dairy Queen Blizzard. Any flavor she likes.

BTW, tell your daughter I still want that hat.

Ron

I'm having a hard enough time keeping her away from the sweets, Ron. You're not helping. It's hard to keep her focused. What is it with women and sweets.....chocolate for that matter?

She'll probably fight you for the hat, at least till she gets to know you then she'll share it.

I was there! I'm actually in one of the pictures.

Ron..Nice meeting you!

And Raydar.... your a lucky ***** for winning both the spare tire cover and whatever come with it plus the Money.
I guess its a reward for going to almost all the swap meets.
Plus your car is Awesome!

I really did have fun. Sad to see Ed Parks retire, but Glad that Jeremy is taking over for him.

By the way, I was showed inside the Warehouse, and I saw and touched THE Blue 85 SE. Its in Pieces but still.
