If you want to support Fieros Forever, there's a GoFundMe to help the cleanup effort.
UPDATE: Fieros Forever owner Tim Evans contacted Autoclassics.com with a clarification. "The parts, tools, signs, and anything that is part of what was salvaged CANNOT BE TAKEN FOR FREE. I will be on site and will sell items at a reduced price," Evans told us.
Catastrophic flooding near Midland, Michigan, resulted in the evacuation of tens of thousands of people, the destruction of a dam, and tremendous damage to many of the towns in the area. As you may have already read on Autoclassics.com, the deluge also destroyed the Fieros Forever collection owned by Tim Evans in Sanford, Michigan. In an effort to have something positive come out of this sad news, Evans is giving away any of the Fiero components that avoided damage in the floodwaters. In addition, Evans' children have started a GoFundMe fundraiser to help the family cover the flood relief expenses.
The Evans family and members of the Michigan Fiero Club have sorted through the vast collection of parts and placed them outside Fieros Forever's destroyed building in Sanford, Michigan. Judging by the photos, there's a huge array of components that a Fiero fan might be looking for, including lots of wheels, body panels, and mechanical components. The only limit on this offer is that everything must be gone by June 2.
There's something very sad about seeing such destruction for a collection where there was clearly so much love in building it. Ideally, we hope that members of local Fiero clubs can come together and collect all of the remaining parts on June 2. There are sure to be pieces leftover that an enthusiast would eventually need for his or her own Fiero project.
The flood came at a particularly bad time for Fieros Forever because Evans was preparing to auction off many vehicles in his collection. According to the GoFundMe page, all of the Pontiacs sustained severe damage and have received salvage titles. The flooding was so bad that it picked up the Village Hall and pushed it into the Fieros Forever building.
