September, 19 - 21, 2014 - A Pontiac Celebration - Warwick, RI. A family weekend of car-filled fun with all profits going to fight childhood Cancer. The Tomorrow Fund and Alex's Lemonade Stand will once again benefit from this great show and fun weekend. This year a Fiero - actually Phil's Foruma with the SC3800 - is one of three Pontiacs featured on the flier.
Mark your calendars and get your Fieros ready. We had a good turnout at the 2012 show so let's pass the word and park even more Fieros on the show field for the 2014 show. Friday night starts with a music filled cruise night lead by DJ Cruisin' Bruce Palmer in the hotel parking lot. Saturday, check out all the wonderful Pontiacs dotting the expansive hotel lawn and visit the craft and swap meet area. Sunday we'll say our farewells.
The Celebration Show is looking to have a good turnout of Fieros in the two classes offered. At least that's what I know from the list of Fieros pre-registered. You can always register the day of the show.
Come join us for a day of fun and to help raise money for the two children's charities.
A reminder that the Celebration show is a week away on Saturday. Join us for some Fiero fun and help raise money for the two children's charities. Probably a little late to pre-register, but that's OK. Just show up the day of the show for the same entrance fee.
If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer or I will get the answer.
I started packing my car with tools, spare parts, cleaning supplies and clothing. I have motel reservations for the trip up. I filled the tank up today to insure the car still starts and runs like a top. I checked out the future weather forecast and highs in the mid 70s, lows in the mid 50s all which are 25 degrees cooler than here in Florida.
I've run 1100 miles so far and am in Pa. The 87 has been averaging 31.7 mpg. Mostly 5th gear on the highway. I wish the gas gauge worked. Every 220 miles or so I'd stop for gas and the gas gauge has read from 1/2 to less than 1/4, but I can only pump in ~7 gallons. I have my gas stops preprogrammed into my GPS along I-95. The cheapest I've paid was $3.029 for 87, although I did see a WaWa that had it for $2.999. The stop in Pa for gas it was $3.329. I'll need to stop around Fishkill, NY before I hit Connecticut where gas is running $355-3.85 according to GasBuddy.com
The 87 will hit 150,000 miles before tomorrow is over.
What a good weekend enjoying the car hobby. Friday night was the parking lot Teddy Bear cruise for any make car and even though it was a little cool for this time of year, there were over 150 cars. The night included music, donated toys for ill children spending time in the hospital and awards for "best Ford, best Mopar, etc., etc.
Saturday was all about celebrating the Pontiac brand at the Pontiac Celebration show and Pontiacs certainly came out in force and filled the field at the host hotel. Pontiacs from around the U.S. to as far away as Canada came to help raise money for the two children's Cancer charities. I understand over 300 Pontiacs assembled, which included 22 Fieros separated in the two Fiero classes.
It was a beautiful, warm late summer day here in RI on Saturday and even warmer today as I write this on Sunday. It's great to visit New England at this time of the year. This show is held every two years and I'm already inviting all Fiero enthusiasts to join us in 2016.
I want to thank all the Fieros and their owners who came this weekend. From NEFA club member friends to friends we know from other states and Fiero clubs to the new, never seen before Fieros and owners who joined the fun and we can now add to the friend list..........Thank You!
