In the video AJ’s Project Fiero, I showed a glimpse into the mind of a 17 year old and his project car, a 1986 Pontiac Fiero. It’s been a while since I provided an update on that project, so look for one in the next week or so.
While helping AJ find resources for his restoration, I discovered a series of YouTube videos from a young man who was also in the middle of a Fiero restoration. Ronald Finger has a YouTube channel with fifteen (15) episodes (and a bunch of side stories) about the process to restore this car over a 2+ year period. You can see them all at his channel HERE.
His final episode is linked at the bottom of this page.
Watch this young man’s recap of his journey–you will understand why I am passionate about helping nurture the younger car enthusiasts. The emotion of his project completion happens around the 32 minute mark. Watch it…with a Kleenex.
It’s not just about the cars, but the people and their connection to things that stir their imagination.
Supporting the Hobby
This story of Ronnie’s project gives me renewed hope that the car hobby will remain alive and well with the younger generation. This is the reason I provide ongoing support of automotive programs designed to inspire and educate young car enthusiasts through the sale of items in the Vehicle Nanny Merchandise Store.
All proceeds go directly to programs like the Hagerty Automotive Youth Program. I hope you can find a fun item for yourself that also supports our budding car enthusiasts.
