If I am still around then I definitely want to go. The most important question is which one of my 5 Fieros do I bring? If there was a convertible reunion as part of the plans I would definitely bring my 87 convertible. Seen on the end in the photo

You can join any caravan from the south headed north... That's my plan.

It is the 40th Anniversary of production beginning - which started in September 1983.

Sounds like we have a Caravan Plan startig already. If you are heading up I-65 that would get Nashville, Bowling Green, and Louisville. From there we could see... Go through Cincinnati on I-71 to I-75 or continue up I-65 to Indy then I-69. Both are similar in distance.

Sounds like a great time, hope I can make it, but to be honest I'm just trying to get though the next 2 months let alone the next 2 years.

I am thinking hard and heavy about attending that one. For the past several years I have been making the trip North to attend Fierorama. Now I will have to decide which to attend come 2023.

Updates:
In July 2023, the Fiero community will come together to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the July 18th, 1983 start of production of Fieros available to the public. While this event is still in the planning stages, it is slated to include numerous events including a day at the GM Heritage Center, a visit and scavenger hunt with the Pontiac Transport Museum, a track day, and feature show. Other events will occur at our host hotel, the Centerpoint Marriott. This celebration will bring home the last Pontiacs made in Pontiac, MI, including the very last car ever produced there - a 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT that sold for $90k at auction in October 2020. Other cars that will be on site include PPG Pace Cars, the 2+2 Fiero prototype, and the opportunity to visit with other Fiero prototypes and special cars at the GM Heritage Center collection. 1 of 3 original 1984 Indy Pace Cars is already confirmed, and it is anticipated that the other 2 cars will also be on hand, making this even the first time all 3 cars have been together since race day in 1984. MWFC also projects that approximately 400 Fieros will attend this reunion from around the United States, along with guests from around the world . Our Fiero Community is a friendly, diverse group that gets together to enjoy the camaraderie of their fellow Fiero owners and exchange all things Fiero related.

While this collection of cars is quite special, an even more extraordinary part of the event will be the assemblage of people that will come together to celebrate the Fiero, including members of the Pontiac Motorsports Division, Pontiac Design Studio, and Pontiac Engineering, along with other key members of the Fiero team. MWFC is also going to issue a special invitation to all individuals who worked at the Fiero plant to come and celebrate one of the most unique cars General Motors ever produced.

The Midwest Fiero Clubs Region is a non-geographical region of the Antique Automobile Club of America, currently consisting of individual members from around the United States and 9 member clubs. Those member clubs are currently the Heartland Fiero Club, Michigan Fiero Club, Wisconsin Fiero Fanatics, Mid-Atlantic Fiero Owners Association, Northern Illinois Fiero Enthusiasts, Kansas City Fiero Owners Group, Minnesota Fieros Forever, Midwest Fieros, and Mid-America Fieros. We are a dedicated group of enthusiasts whose passion is to promote and preserve the Pontiac Fiero and the Fiero Community.

Every 5 years since 2003, the core members of this group have been involved in organizing and directing Fiero Anniversary Celebration Events. These celebrations commemorate the 5-year incremental anniversaries of the first day of Fiero production. The 2003 and 2008 events were held at the Centerpoint Marriott in Pontiac, MI with outings to surrounding facilities including the GM Heritage Center, Waterford Hills Race Course, and Milan Dragway. The 2013 event was held in Indianapolis, IN and featured a day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The 2018 event was held in East Peoria, IL to tie-in with an outing to the Pontiac, IL Pontiac Oakland Museum.

Sort of an tangential question - it was mentioned that the Centerpoint Marriot was going to be the host hotel for the 40th Fiero Anniversary.

That sounds fairly set in stone - since I expect this to be even bigger than the Carlisle events, I imagine rooms will be filling up fast. Is there a group/block of rooms reserved with them, and can we start making reservations now?

Super excited to finally be able to be at one of these!
