Hi from Baton Rouge. I believe that we communicated here years ago. It's been almost 8 years since I got my 88 gt so that gives some idea of the time frame. I recall that you had a parts car and also an old Corvette. Was it a '65?
There was a guy in my neighborhood who bought a burgundy GT with either an LS1 or an LT1, can't remember. He almost never drove it. Now about 8 blocks away I see a burgundy GT parked from time to time. I don't know if it's the same one or another. I saw a red GT in town a couple of years ago but not since. I suspect that there are some around that don't see the road much. Mine is my daily driver.
8 years ago I bought it with 30k miles. Now I am approaching 80k. Starting from front to back, I have replaced the radiator, the radiator fan, front brake pads twice, both ball joints on the driver's side, the circulating fan, heater core, ignition switch, several batteries, starter, water pump, timing chain, auto clutch solenoid and of course many bulbs. I have repaired my left headlight motor twice. My oldest daughter hit the front with her boy fiend's pickup and my youngest daughter was rear ended by a C5 Vette. Both bumper covers are damaged, and the silver paint has turned to yucky grey.
I'm in Houma, LA. I'm looking for other Fiero owners close to me. There is one daily driven red 87-88 in my town, I know where he works, and he has possible two more that are not running. Last night, a friend of mine told me that he had a friend with a Fiero sitting in his backyard. I'm trying to find out more info on him now.
Nope, there sure aren't. There is a very nice, red DD that someone else in Houma is driving. He has 1, possibly 2 other cars as well. There is a Lamborghini Countach kits in Gray (town bordering Houma), or atleast used to be. A buddy of mine knows of another car sitting in the backyard of a friend of his. So there are atleast 5-6 cars near me, but I haven't met any of the owners yet.
I use to live in Bourg, outside of Houma, and still work 7&7 out of Houma. I bought a T top et up years ago, for my fiero, but decided not to use it if your interested, I got the front, and rear sections from the original car to use as templates, and a install manual, got the 1/4 rivets. The seals aren't that god, but I got and was planning to use a set of 3 gen Camaro to top seals and modifying them.
I would love have T-tops, but I believe the conversion is outside of my scope of abilities. I am wanting to do the sunroof. Conversion though, and I found the parts I need for the job. I am trying to work out something, and have a friend's pick up my parts, and bring them to Houma for me.
