As you may or may not know, this is the weekend of the "Tyler's Toy" build. You can follow the build through a live feed here. I would ask to post progress pictures in this thread, but I understand the color of the car is kind of a secret until the reveal, so I guess until then we will need to do without pictures (or black and white pictures).
A few shots from today's feed for those who couldn't watch: Till after the reveal--and some real pics can be posted. I think this is Karen (t-shirts) saying hi to everyone in the live chat. (correct me if I am wrong plz) There were over 60 ppl logged in about that time.
Not sure who this is
The troops have to eat sometime.
Tyler Shipman right after he spoke with Hulki in Iraq.

Where can I donate? This is such a heart warming human act of kindness you all are doing and I really want to help.
At this stage of the game, as the build is nearly done AFAIK, and the 3.4 swap is said to be fully taken care of, I suggest donating at http://www.tylerstoy.com/ There's a donate link there on the lower left for paypal to danate directly to the Shipman's--Tyler, family etc.
Oh yeah, don't spoil any suprizes, but there was a whole bunch of donated stuff to the left of the web cam, and I'm sure there are things that could be shown - like Pontiac Kid installing the starter...
The last photo posted, not of the video of the finished car.....all of the Fieros parked outside; where did they come from? Local owners or from the Out of Town Dream Team?
From the left: Black 85 GT is KEV's (Kevin - Currnet Pres of MFF) Red/Primer SE is Synthesis (Chris - you all know him) Blue GT is Pete Grosz's (former Pres & founder of MFF) Not sure on the 2 silver notchies Red GT I believe is Carbon's (Nick Laffen of Jordan, MN) White Formula is GT Geff (Jeff Wendt - former Pres of MFF & Owner of the Stinger)

I wish I could have been there to help out but I have been traveling for work pretty much since the 14th.
What you all have come to gether to accomplish is remarkable. It is something that you all can be proud of for the rest of your lives. My hat is off to all of you. You are a group who says that you care and then backs it up with action. I am especially proud to be a Fiero owner today.
Please post more photos. Somebody please post a video of the reveal if Tyler hasn't seen it yet.
For those interested. I posted pictures of the plaque that was presented to Tyler yesterday during the build. I started a thread where members can post their thanks to Sam Shepard. I am going to forward a link to Sam who did the actual fabrication for me.
