1985 Pontiac Fiero Sport Coupe Walkaround + Update
I walk around my (grandfather's) 1985 Pontiac Fiero Sport Coupe that we moved from it's "resting place" to where it is in the video. This is mainly to show my friends this beautiful car, and to show the amount of work that I am going to have to put into the car from 15 years of neglect.
The odometer shows 56, 841 Miles, which for a 25 year old car is great, but it hasn't been driven all those 25 years. It was last driven for a week in 1995, and has been sitting ever since.
Okay so here's the update! Sometime after I did this video, my grandfather and I pulled the car onto the paved driveway and parking pad in front of the house. When we moved it, we found that the brake calipers had seized up again, so we kinda ended up dragging it rather than pulling it. We looked at the frame of the car with it on paved surface. The rear of the frame is in terrible rusted shape with many holes, so we may not be able to use the whole car. As much as I want to see this particular car working again, I just don't think that this can be done. The engine would probably have to be rebuilt from not having fluids drained. We can however find another 85 model (would prefer to keep it an 85) and swap the body panels between the two cars. But, with me being unemployed, doing anything with this car is far from the first thing on my mind. Since then, the car has been moved twice more, and it now sits next to where it was in this video.
