Hi All, just joining the forum. Old retired guy here in Las Vegas, Nevada. Done lots of "neat" stuff in my career, but it all started as a young engineer at Pontiac Motor Division. I came on board just as Delorean was leaving to head up Chevrolet. Yes, I knew Hulki Aldekacti; saw him almost daily, but never worked directly with him on any projects. Worked heavily on the second gen Firebird/Trans Am. I left in 1974 as a result of lingering effects of the Oil Embargo....several years before the Fiero project would materialize. I recently got an 87 GT for next to nothing, and being on a retirement budget, have a similar amount to spend on it...lol. You'll see me on here scrounging for parts

Hi, and welcome to the hobby and the forum!
I am also retired, and of limited income, and building a dream Fiero...a yellow 88 CJB Formula with a Series II GTP L67. I have built a few muscle cars over the years, and this will probably be the last one. I am working out of a single bay garage, with an attached storage shed, and only during 3 seasons...so challenges are evident.
In my favor, I have plenty of free time, an understanding and very helpful wife, and a neighborhood that does not frown on shade tree mechanic work (more rare every day).
If you plan the outcome of your project with detail, you can form a parts list that maximizes your budget. Once that is done, leverage time and patience to accomplish the purchases, by waiting and watching for each part to become available at a reasonable price. I have almost everything needed to accomplish this build now, thanks to many members of this forum who have posted parts in the mall that fit my list...and others who posted on Craigslist and eBay.
Also, use the forum to sell any 'surplus' parts resulting from your work. The doodad collecting dust in the corner might be just what someone like me is waiting to see for sale. The income is useful to purchase miscellaneous small parts 'over the counter' for your own build. Good luck, have fun and keep us posted.

Well good news, you live in the same city as the largest Fiero yard in the world. Right here in Las Vegas. (link in my sig)
You should stop by sometime and check us out.
Don't worry I don't want to shove parts down your throat, (but probably have whatever you could need) But I bet you have great stories that I would love to hear.

A retired ex-Pontiac engineer....with a Fiero who needs parts.....in Las Vegas.....Prepare to have your brain picked!


Welcome. Many good folks here, and I'm sure some of us will try to "pester" you for answers to things you've got no clue about.

Looking forward to seeing/hearing about your project.

HAGO!

PS: You DO know that you are in the same town with the guy that took the Fiero to the next level......you know....kind of picked up where GM left off with it? I'm talking about V8 Archie. Do a search on here, if you're not already aware of his accomplishments and reputation. He "semi"-retired to Vegas some time ago, and as far as I know, is still involved with Fiero's and the Fiero world. At any rate, you won't find a better source of information and/or resources than Archie.
