News2010 Swap Meet Announced!
We are pleased to announce the 12th Annual Swap Meet dates...
The 12th annual Fiero Factory Swapmeet will be held April 30 through May 2nd, 2010. Click here for more details.
I, Jeremy Biggs, and my wife Stacey, have purchased The Fiero Factory from Ed and Rosy. We have been running it since 01/04/10, so you may have talked to one of us if you've called or come by. The shop was closed from 12/23 through 01/04, and we spent the last couple of weeks trying to get all set up (THAT will never be done...). If you have sent an email since the 24th of December, I am working to get caught up, as I had a couple of weeks with minimal computer access. Thank you for your patience.
None of the basics of the business have changed...contact info is all the same, staff is the same (with the exception of long-time tech David, who is no longer with us due to health reasons), and we're continuing what Ed and Rosy built up over the years. We are working hard to improve and expand things...and give the shop a much needed update in various ways.
Some of you may know me; many may not as I'm not a regular on the forums and email lists. I moved to Alabama in 1998 from Florida to work for The Fiero Factory. In Florida I was an ASE certified tech doing general repairs, specializing in diagnostics and electronics, from 1992 through 1995. From '95 through '98 I ran a car audio shop and was also the "head installer", installing in-car entertainment, audio, and custom fiberglass interior work. I started playing with Fieros around '94. Ed got to know me over the internet, and offered me a job if I was willing to relocate, which I did in '98. I was a tech at The Fiero Factory from '98 until mid 2006, and the last two years of which Ed was "practicing" retiring and letting me handle much of the day-to-day operations in addition to wrenching. So...I am no stranger to Fieros, nor The Fiero Factory.
In 2006, I had a unique opportunity to jump into IT work with a substantial pay increase, and took it, with Ed's blessing. When Ed approached me about buying the shop when he retired, I knew I had the chance to take something great and make it even better. Despite the financial hardships it is putting on us, we are excited and happy to keep The Fiero Factory up and running for the Fiero community. With your support, we will be here for a long time, and hope to have more to offer as time goes on! We are open to comments and suggestions, and know that quality work and customer satisfaction is critical to a successful business. We are working to be more accessible; we have a Facebook page, and you can follow us on Twitter. As always you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us with any needs and questions.
Thanks all, and we look forward to serving your Fiero needs!
Jeremy and Stacey Biggs
