Fiero Assembly Plant http://www.racertrust.org/P...p_Pontiac_Fiero_1121

This property includes a 1.4 million-square-foot building, the former Plant 17 Fiero Assembly Plant, and a parking lot on 43.1 acres of land along Baldwin Avenue. An adjoining Powerhouse was previously purchased by DTE Energy. The property is located just southwest of the larger GM Pontiac North Campus in a heavy industrial zone, and is approximately one mile north of Downtown Pontiac. Infrastructure at the site includes electric, water, sanitary and storm sewer.

Fiero Powerhouse http://www.racertrust.org/P...iero_Powerhouse_1116
The Fiero Powerhouse, part of the former Fisher Body Plant, was purchased by DTE Energy through a ground lease, though the RACER Trust retains ownership of the 14 acres of land at the site. The property is located in Pontiac along Baldwin Avenue, near the larger GM Pontiac North Campus.

really though, how cool would it be to have an indoor track that uses fiero bodies inside the fiero plant. I'd go.

I LOL'ed

Why would anyone buy the LAND the Fiero Powerhouse is on, if DTE owns the buildings on the land? Similarly, if the Fiero plant is 'under contract' does that mean you'd simply own the land and not have use of the actual factory?

Here's a thought: The Fiero Store is a multi-million dollar a year business, they could move operations there, and start a Fiero repair business, maybe give factory tours with a little gift shop at the end (I think the factory used to have one?) THAT would be cool!

Where is all the machining tools, parts bins, and everything that was told to the press?

I would say that is unlikely most of the tools have probably been moved and or purposed for other means. although i am certain there is all kinds of fiero bits lying around probably a few discarded body panels wheels bits and pieces nothing monumental by any means but enough to make you smile. After the plant was to go on shutdown permanently it was likely that most everything useful was sold off to competitors and or re purposed the molds and copyright stuff along with any prototype stuff were likely destroyed... trade secrets less someone get the molds and start making unauthorized fieros

I have been at the plant several times in the last 4 years. Beleive me there is nothing there. I have some of the trash barrels, FIERO signs. Grand award sign 53"X96" which I was able to obtain last year. Would post a photo, but my pip will not post. I could e-mail someone and they could post it . The article about the sale of plant #17 and other GM closed plants was in the Detroit News 6-20-2012 section C Business & Autos.

The Fiero Store is owned by Leader Industries, which is not solely a Fiero parts supplier. I doubt they would spend that kind of cabbage just to cater to the Fiero fanatics. Not to mention, The Fiero Store just moved to another facility.

For the same reason you'd buy an office building where all the offices are under contract already. It's called an investment. You spend money expecting to make a return on it.

EDIT: Oh, and "Under Contract" as it mentions on the listing page probably means someone has put in a contract to purchase it, and it's likely to be sold soon. That's how real estate sales work.

Supposing money wasn't an issue, what's the legality behind someone buying the plant, somehow restarting production (I realize the molds, machinery, & so on are no longer in it & even if they were the issue of maintenance blah blah blah) & selling the car. With Pontiac as a company being closed, & the car now nearing 30 years in age, I'm just curious about complete reproduction, or rather restarting production. I'm sure someone still owns any copyrights, but with time those too will expire.

I know that area, when I used to smoke, I'd get almost all of my weed within a couple miles of there. It's not the best area, bring your pistol. There is a tiny little car sales place about 1/2 mile from there, it had a Fiero on the roof since they were new, I don't remember if it's still there. The plant is only a couple miles from the Great Lakes Crossing mall as well.

Oh, and you might want a 4x4 to cope with the road quality in the area.

GM will forever own the trademark until such a time as they sell it off, or just decide to stop renewing it; neither of which is particularly probable anytime in the reasonably near future.

My brother worked at the Fiero plant when it was shut down. He brought home a bunch of VIN plates that were scheduled for production use but when production stopped he found them in a scrap bin.

Yes all the stuff in the plant of any value is long gone.

GM used the plant for storage and some other tasks but never production. This plant has a rich history even before the fiero.

Pontiac will renew the name for many years to come. GM has kept up recent names and also gone back to collect many of the names in the past. This way they can control their use and image. Also if they ever consider using them again they will have first rights. Not saying I ever expect the Fiero to ever come back again.

Phone calls placed to Rick Marcicki...I'll see if we can get some cooperation as far as looking for "stuff" from the plant.

Just got off the phone with Ken Pennington from the dismantling company. They are currently working out details for plant disassembly with the city of Pontiac. I spoke with him about two points:

1) Saving any Fiero related memorabilia that they can find (I even offered to fly up there and join them in a walk through looking for "stuff" to save)
2) Possible last gathering of Fiero club members and enthusiasts at the plant prior to disassembly (great PR for their company in the media)

Strangely enough, Jim had a Fiero in his early years! I promised him we would pick him up in a Fiero to bring him to the event should we be able to organise it. Awaiting phone call from Rick for timelines and inputs.

Your thoughts?

I can drive there, it's less than 20 miles and hold things they find or even a truck full of bricks for future distribution.

Tim Seagraves just gave me a call and he loves the idea. He is personally going to go by and look around for any Pontiac or Fiero items. He likes the idea of a gathering for us so we can visit the factory one last time. He also liked the idea of saving bricks from the factory buildings for us. Also, thanks for the offer to grab and store items. That may come in very handy!!!

Tim is going to work through some PR details and get back with me on all this. Most importantly he will work through some dates. This may end up being a very quick to throw together gathering. If this comes to fruition we will need two things: a good showing and some vendor participation!

GM's former Pontiac plant sold to Lapeer-based company

The trust charged with selling or redeveloping 89 properties General Motors shed in bankruptcy said today that it had sold a Pontiac plant.

The Revitalizing Auto Communities Environmental Response Trust (RACER) sold the 1.4 million-square-foot Fiero Assembly plant to Lapeer-based North American Dismantling Corp., which has already bought two other former GM plants in Pontiac.

The buyer has struck a tentative deal with an unidentified company that wants to move 30 to 50 workers into the space after it’s been renovated, according to a news release.

The RACER Trust, which has completed 20 sales of former GM properties, said the 43-acre Fiero site could have a new user before the end of 2013. The trust has a fund to conduct environmental cleanup at the former GM sites. The Baldwin Avenue plant is located a mile north of downtown Pontiac.

“This is a tremendous piece of property, and it will be well-suited for economic growth once we make some needed adjustments to the infrastructure, removing portions of the building that are simply no longer usable,” NADC President Rick Marcicki said in a statement. “Our purchase of this property paves the way for new long-term jobs here, and we’re excited about the future here.”

I've always wondered where they parked the cars when they came off the line?

I drove around the place when we went to the 25th show but besides the employee parking infront of the plant and the small parking on the side that was used for storage, I don't see where they could of parked the lines of freshly built cars.

The local firebird/camaro plant we had here and the solstice plant in Delaware had huge lots filled with fresh cars.

I was in the plant this summer. The large award sign that I got last year is the last piece of FIERO memrobilia in the plant I did a complete walk through. Have talked to security and said all FIERO items are gone. If I hear anything about the plant being destroyed I will post. I have the article that was in the Detroit News about the selling of plant #17 and others. I know plant #25 was being destroyed. Will post a photo of the grand award sign when I can get PIP to work on my new computer.

If plant #17 is destroyed, my plan is to number a brick and take a photo at the plant so one would know it is from plant #17.

If I'm able to collect the bricks, I'm not looking for a profit. I'd just want to cover the shipping costs. I will take pictures of me loading at the plant and unloading at my house. I'll do the best I can to not break any bricks during the loading and unloading process but I can't wrap every one in bubble wrap. If there's a specific brick or bricks in the pile that's at my place I'd do my best to send it.
