Hi everybody. I'm trying to understand why there is ( sometimes) a parts issue that I read about on here, usually in "the Mall" link. People looking for certain parts for their Fiero, sometimes common, some a little more rare. 88 steering rack or cradle for example. So I did a small amount of reserch today and made a phone call to TFF auto center. Letters look familiar?
TFF auto was origionally the Fiero Factory, and they are still very much into supplying Fiero parts to whoever places an order. I told them I was very much involved in the Fiero, and asked for a quote on certain 88 parts. The 88 steering rack and front wheel bearings. I figured if they had those to offer, they pretty much should have anything. They immediately were able to give me a price on the items.
I then asked that if I came up there would I be able to brose the property and pull whatever parts I wanted myself. They told me " no" because of insurance purposes.
My point here is this. Between the Fiero Store, the now TFF Auto, Rodney Dickman, Ebay, and a few people on here breaking up Fieros for parts, are some of us, to what I imagine, having a problem finding the parts they need? I have both an 87 and an 88, and have been very fortunate to get ahold of whatever I need. I'm very thankful for that, considering my cars are 30 years old. I'm even more thankful for this site and all you people who have been extremeyt helpful answering my posts.
So why are some of us searching when it seems to me our large suppliers are there?

I believe a large part of the problem is simply that quite a few Fiero owners (Especially NEW owners) do not know about all of those resources......Another resource is called "Row52" which is a search engine for Pick & Pull and some other dismantlers.........

Sadly, some people also have an aversion to some of these resources- I for one am happy with any support I can find for my.......addiction......and I SUPPORT them as much as possible.
