In the past couple of years we have a pancake breakfast for those that arrive by Thursday night or very early Friday morning. The breakfast is at the Sugar Mill (pics above) Friday morning.
On Saturday morning we head out to the track to get the cars parked. We BS all day until 4 PM when the track closes.
On Saturday evening we usually are on our own or go in a informal group to eat or if planned like last couple of years we head out to a local hotel for a get together.
Also for some of us we go to the local go-kart track to drive ourselves crazy.
Sunday a lot of people start making plans to head home. Some of us go back to the track to look at the other cars (non Fiero)

As of now I do not know if Frank Martin http://spacecoastfieros.com has a hotel dinner in the works.

I definitely want to do the Sugar Mill Breakfast gathering and would like to take a spin on the go-kart track on Saturday night.
I was planning to stay just one night but now I'm upgrading my plan to two nights.

Old plan= arrive early Friday morning to meet up with everyone going to the Sugar Mill. Do whatever else with the group sleep over that night and return home after the show on Saturday.

New plan= stay an extra night and enjoy Sunday either by going back to the track or heading out fresh and relaxed to Downtown Disney then back home.

Clem with my plans I guess no Flying J's for me, unless I really go wild and head on up on Thursday. What’s your itinerary looking like?

I will be leaving some time on Thursday, probably around noon.
Stopping on the way at the Flying J.
If I have anything for Frank Martin (like last years power steering set-up), I will stop off at his house.
Arrive early Thursday evening, check in, BS a lot than head out with the gang to eat supper, usually next to the hotel.

$89.00 looks much better than $149.00

I"ll take it!

Clem the Fiero council is made up of these:

Central Florida Fieros
Palm Beach Fieros
Space Coast Fieros
Sun Coast Fieros

three of the above can be reached.

Palm Beach Fieros is accessible but has not been active since 2002 it seems. Space Coast Fieros and Centeral Florida Fieros are the only one that are active and current.

Do you know what happened to the others?

Yes the web address has changed.

Long story, but originally the address was .com, then we had to change to .net, but now it is back to .com !

That's no fun; I won't get to post my count down...

I wish other people would get interested and post stuff...is their cars ready? What they have planned to do to the cars or simply are they going?

Pictures of the first time this event was held, comments on how to improve this upcoming event etc.

People (here) always love to see members cars….me included.

Where did you hear that?

Since I've been on this forum plus two Daytona shows under my belt, I've only encountered good friendly people.

There might be a bad apple here or there but it definitely does not spoil the group.

Don't let the A/C situation hold you back; I'm in the same boat. If I can fix it by then great if not I'm still going. The event is wonderful don't miss out.

Frank those pics are great. I sure wish I knew about this then, I would have attended all these years.

Anyhow I'm sure not going to miss any more, going on my third year now.

People keep the thread and posting alive! Send Frank your ideas and suggestions to make this upcoming year the best.

The very first pic that Frank posted of the red GT going thru the tunnel is my car when I had "XTYNCT" for a tag.

In the third pic down, I am the red Fiero in front of the white stripe car.

From 1997 Denny's bug eye headlights


When they let us on the track, the lineup


My 87 GT is the front one, the car in back of me another 87 GT with a vin # about 10 off from mine. I ran into him again a couple of years ago at Daytona..another original owner.

Alex when are you having another Hooters meeting at 2020 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd. in West Palm Beach. Or maybe even better we can have a meeting at Tower Shops and get more than the two regular Fieros to show up.

It has not been for a while now. However things can change from one moment to another. Contact Frank www.spacecoastfieros.com or pm him (member "Dragon")

Don't let a no judging verdict stop you from attending, you'll still miss out on lots of fun.

2009 was not a "judged show", however there was a "Top 15 Fieros" by popular vote.
Many feel like the elimination of traditional judging has resulted in a much more relaxed and fun event.
I agree.
