We raffled a pair of Tyco slots at RFTH.  They're about the size of Matchbox or Hot Wheels cars and they do need a track.  I believe they have a double contact for power and the slot pin is only for keeping it on the track.  There was a red one and a black one.

LOL! I know the cars need a track, I was asking if the new owner needed one or a place to run them...
Crap: I was going to post a photo of my track but the image is too large.

The big thick ones are the factory service manuals, commonly referred to as Helms Manuals. 

If the thick one is the Helms, what are the 2 thinner ones, and the single thinner one?

For those that haven't seen a 1988 owner's manual

This is the holder.  Odd that none of the greys match.

Here is the Owner's Manual in the holder.

It could be in better condition.

Here is the maintenance schedule


There are a few cards.  I have the sales paperwork, and may have the salesman's card somewhere.

The thick ones marked Service Manual are factory.  The thinner ones are probably do it yourself maintenance and service guides.  I see some Haynes and Chiltons manuals that are good for all but major teardown repairs and rebuilds.  The small ones like in the 88 folder are mostly for people who don't do their own troubleshooting and repairs.  Tells you the location of features and their function, how to set the radio, etc.

The manual in the top pic should be the same as the similar one in the bottom pic, but the top one is much thicker (about half an inch).  If you get a reprint of the Helms manual, they split it into two.  I don't have them, so don't know how thick they are.

I'm missing the '88 Fiero Product book, the '88 Fiero color chart, the '88 Fiero DIY manual, and whatever supplementals.  I like to have all the stuff.

Somewhere, I have some various Hot Rod and things magazines with Fiero articles.  Those are probably in the library.

I believe the thicker one has better electrical schematics. Yum-yum! I'd love to have one.
If you don't own a Fiero, don't blame your wife for having a boyfriend who does.

It's a darn good thing somebody labeled the service manual "Book", because I may have gotten confused.

Interesting.  I thought Mark Corbin had moved on, but there is a third edition Fiero Spotters' Guide, for 2017.

Some of the service manuals state ”text only”.

I have the revised 1984 Fiero maintenance schedule, but it's much larger than the maintenance schedules for 1986 and 1988.  Was that normal for 1984?

Anyone seen the Clymer Fiero manual?

Well, my manuals may not be in the best condition, but this should help them.

I have the electronic version of the 22P from Fierofool, but sometimes it's nice to have one in your hands.  These are about ready to return to dust, so probably only for use when the wind isn't blowing.
