This is the introductory video for my 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT. I'll be changing both rear wheel bearings and installing a Rodney Dickman steering rack bushing and inner tie-rod end. Once mechanically all set, I'll be painting the car, so I'll do quite a bit of sanding and I'll base coat/clear coat back to black.
You can find out more about the car at it's website:
The quick and dirty, I purchased the car in 2002 with 49,000 miles. It now as about 64k miles and is stored winters. It is a well optioned late 1988 year car and is very fun to drive.
Fiero Update - Back to More videos
Just a quick update on my Fiero...she's been painted, which took quite a bit of time that I didn't have...but it's done for this year, now it's time for more tractor videos.
Painted at a 2004 Mustang FireMist Metallic, I'll be doing more videos on it next spring. You can follow some pictures at the following link:
My 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1 Designer Series
This is a quick run down of my 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1 Designer Series car. You can read all about it and see clear pictures at its website:
Sorry for the lack of action, it's just me showing some of the items I've done to the car since I've owned it. I omitted that that the silver paint is cracked and needs to be repainted and that I also needed to add the #7 lower body bushing. I plan to have it on the road in the next year or two. It currently has just over 80k miles.
Wheel Spin - Why they call me Turbo231 - My 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1
From my video archives, a very short video of my Buick in action.
This is my 1986 Buick Regal T-Type WH1, one of 468 made that year and the last year of the designer cars.
Taken back in probably 2002, I was playing with the waste gate, trying to find the right spot between Boosting and getting her to spool the turbo. Fan is running because the Jay Carter 93 Octaine chip makes it run any speed under 55 for cooling. You can barely hear the turbo spool.
I do have other videos of this car on my channel...enjoy. (my lame sideburns included...shot by my dad)
Lamborghini Reventon Replica base on Pontiac Fiero
The Fiero Armed with time and skill, a steel fabricator from Canada named Woody has done an incredible job transforming a $60 mid-engined Pontiac wedge into an amazing homage to the Reventon. Obviously talented, the finished Woodighini is going to be incredible, Woody's done a fine job of transferring the Reventon's proportions to the Fiero's chassis.

1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula Walkaround [HD]
I have nothing new so here's a video of my so-called "clunker" with the new camcorder.
Currently has a small vacuum leak due to a rotted EGR tube gasket so it sets off a Code 32; but it is still drivable. New gasket came today and will fix next week.
