Van, I am glad that worked for you. Let me know if I can help with anything else. And on a side note, I did meet with the group in Georgia and had a chance to meet Charlie. They are a great bunch of people. I plan to make that stop again if I am in the area and timing permits.
How did you make out with the car you were picking up?
Van, It is an 84 with a rather well done series one 3800 swap (possibly by ACE) that someone had started to convert from NA to Supercharged and never quite finished. I'm on the fence about finishing it or parting it . The paint is rough so even finished it won't be a super nice car but as usual I kind of like the challenge of making it at least run. That way I could sell the drivetrain as a complete bolt in for an 84.
How much do you think it will take to finish the "top swap" ? I guess you just need to figure out the break-even number so that you can decide whether or not to finish it vs. parting it out. Either way, I am sure you will make the right choice for you.
Van, The parts seem to be all there except the pulley and belt system. I just need to stop and look at it long enough to decide what inneed to complete the belt system. I picked up two more parts cars tonight to add to the collection. 85GT and 86 SE. It might be time to thin the heard a little. Todd

Sorry I missed you. Was under the weather that day, unfortunately.
Is it possible to come look at this famous Fiero Farm? I am located in Charleston, SC and need some parts for my '88. My dad is a mechanic and would love to come get the stuff himself.
The Farm is not quite what it once was. Now it's just a bunch of parts in totes and parts available on some of the 11 Fieros that I have at this time. I am sure we can arrange a time to get together and discuss the parts you need. I live in Summerville and run a full service repair facility in North Charleston.
Feel free to PM me a list of what your looking for and I can let you know if it's worth your trouble coming by.
