      Hmmmm....if I can remember what I owned from the start...from start to finish:

89 Dodge Caravan
85 Fiero 2M4
91 Geo Storm GSI
87 Toyota Supra Turbo
93 RX7 Twin Turbo
91 RX7 Base
88 RX7 Anniversary Edition Turbo
97 F-150 Flareside 4x4
99 Mustang GT
96 Acura Integra
90 Nissan 300zx
05 Acura MDX

Still in the stable:
99 F-150 Lightning
09 Acura MDX
86 Fiero GT

A few bikes (all sold, due to having a family):
89 Yamaha FZR600
00 Honda CBR 600 F4i
01 Honda CBR 600 F4i

The next car, assuming I consolidate just a bit and if I can pass it by the fiance':
96/97 Dodge Viper GTS (blue and white) or any 96-01 Acura NSX. Always dreamed of those cars from the day they came out.

If those don't pass, it will be a 4 door Cadillac CTS-V, (assuming she never sees the MPG)

Maybe 10 years from now....current or next gen Nissan GTR. That can still carry the kids

Better keep my job!

      Ranked by model year:

2013 Dodge Charger. Not my usual small car, but I love it.



2013 Subaru Outback. For hauling the toys and being the family hauler. (My wife's). The 6 cylinder boxer has tons of power, and for a Crossover I can fling this around curves better than some sporty cars I have driven. Very good balance and dynamics, especially considering it is a crossover.


2009 Volvo C30. This car was just terrific. Too bad everyone else used it as a bumper car.



2008 Honda Accord (technically my wife's car). This was the biggest POS I have ever had the displeasure of owning.



2007 WRX. This car was also terrific fun. A little on the cheap side inside, and with rather thin body panels, but amazing to drive.



2002 Jeep Wrangler Sahara (shown) and an '03 Sport.




1997 Ford Probe. This car drove very nice, but was an utter lemon.



1991 Ford Probe GL Fond memories as I bought this car as a senior in high school



1981 Ford Fairmont, my first car.



(I have also had three Fieros. 88 Formula, 88 Formula TTop, 85 SE 2m6.)

      In order of how much I love them...

1998 Jeep Wrangler Sahara, "Stella the Jeep"



Absolutely fantastic ride. Most fun I've ever had in a vehicle, ever. Jeeps are one of the most polarizing things you will ever drive. Either you love them, or you can't stand them. Every day I don't drive this old jeep, I feel a tiny bit more sad. Alas, but eventually she started to fall apart, and at the time I didn't have the mechanical skills to keep her running. Oh how I regret selling her.

1987 Pontiac Fiero GT, "Chrystina the Fiero"



Named after the most high-maintenance woman I've ever loved. Lots of fun to play with, but way too many problems to ever be reliable. Also daddy issues.

2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe (2.0T), name TBA



Just hit 2000 miles... ridiculously fun, but more importantly, the ride is smooth and the interior is comfortable. It's amazing how much improvement cars have over the ones from 8 years ago, like...

2005 Chevrolet Cobalt 2.2L, "Seraph the Slobalt"




She was a deceptive car. She went over 110,000 miles without any major mechanical issues. Until she started shutting off whenever I hit a hard bump. I really did like this car a lot until it decided it wanted to kill me at every opportunity. Alas GM, how the mighty have fallen.

      Let's see if I can remember them all.

85 Chrysler LeBaron. First car my parents got for me when I was in High-school. Looked like this one, same color and door count.


84 Nissan Kingcab 720 2wd. I purchased when I graduated High-school and returned the Chrylser to my parents. This one made it's way to California Accessories within days of purchase to be lowered and a boomin system followed shortly there after. It looked a lot like this one except tan in color and by the time I eventually sold it, much lower.
This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.

81 Volkswagen Rabbit. Like this but white.


82 Volkswagen Rabbit Pickup. Like this but yellow.


86 Ford Tempo. Like this but even uglier because it was a faded sky blue...


89 Ford Taurus. I don't recall the color ours was. It was a darker metallic but I forget if it was to the brown or red side. I do recall the dark red interior unfortunately.


82 Pontiac Trans Am with the 5spd and 305 V8. Like this one except Metallic Brown with Metallic Gold lower molding not on this car (I think the P.O. added that from a later model T/A). Oh and a big gold flaming chicken on the hood. I actually really enjoyed that car and kinda wish I still had it.


92 Saturn SL1. Looked like this one in a darker Metallic Gray (like that one might be but it looks blue to me). This was one of my favorite cars I've owned.
This images is larger than 153600 bytes. Click to view.

02 Plymouth Neon. First "bought new" car, and the last. It's color was "Salsa"!


95 Dodge Grand Caravan. I guess "Grand" meant it was about 12" longer...


85 Volkswagen Golf. Now we can get into some actual images. This was my Golf that I bought for $500 and then turned around and sold 5 years or so later for... $500. It didn't really take much in the way of maintenance and I loved that car.


96 Jeep Cherokee. This was a departure for me. First and last SUV I've owned. That's not to say I'll never have another SUV just I'm not planning to currently. It did what it did good. That was never an issue. The only "real" issue aside from a failed fuel pump was the chassis rot. Poor thing was getting 4"+ holes rusted out in the floorboard.


00 Pontiac Bonneville. This one made me a fan of the 3800 in NA trim. I've never driven a SC but with the reliability of the NA, I would not object to owning one. This car was soooooo comfortable and fun to drive. It was quick enough, I just wish it was smaller. For some reason my wife and I always end up back in a smaller 4 cylinder car. The VW Golf and Mazda Protege5 represent a bit over half our marriage time. Add in the Neon's... Still the TA, SL1 and this Bonneville were "larger" vehicles that I liked/like.


84 Pontiac Fiero. It was fun for sure!



95 Dodge Neon.
96 Dodge Neon.
The 95 was the driver. The 96 was bought with a bad engine but a nice interior and body so I could swap parts over to the 95 and fix it up.


02 Mazda Protege5. Current daily driver and no plans to replace it any time soon. I like it. A new "toy" car maybe, but this will stay the daily.


I think that's all of them...

Out of those, I wouldn't object to owning another of any of these again.

The Pontiac Trans Am.
The Saturn SL1.
The VW Golf.
The Pontiac Bonneville.
The Dodge Neon.
The Mazda Protege5.

65 Falcon Ranchero 289 auto.
67 Chevy pickup bought new 327 auto would only do 85 flat out.
67 Ranchero 390 this car would be called a muscle car today.

      I usually look after my cars, but once body RUST hits, you have to move on.
NOT a problem since I got the Fiero. So I don't have as varied list as some

1966 Valiant Barracuda Formula S 4-speed - first car - 1972 (a whole 15 miles per gallon!!)
1972 Austin Marina GT - only NEW car I ever bought
1969 Chevy Camaro RS - 327 automatic
1972 Plymouth Duster - 340 automatic
1974 Pontiac LeMans Sport Coupe - 350 automatic
1979 Chev Monza Spyder - swapped 350, 4-speed
1987 Fiero GT (daily driver until 2001)
1984 Fiero Indy SD4 (purchased 2006)

Daily Drivers since 2001 have been Plymouth/Dodge mini-vans (2006 Grand Caravan at present)
Good in snow, handy when you have more than 1 passenger and great for camping.

      I've never owned a noteworthy car other than my 04 Ram Hemi, and the Fiero. Everything else has been boring family mobiles or econo, get to work, transportation. My noteworthy car years are ahead of me as soon as I get rid of all these kids. They are not leaving as fast as I would like though.

br1anstorm MSG #24, 06-23-2014 07:27 AM
      I happened to see this thread, so thought I would post my list. Some cars may be less familiar to Stateside forum readers. In chronological order, they are

Bedford van - former Post Office mail delivery vehicle, bought when I was a penniless student
Hillman Avenger GLS - not many of them left now, even in UK
Peugeot 504 saloon - I owned two in succession. Tough, comfortable French cars
Honda Accord hatchback - smooth engine, poor paintwork, prone to rust
Reliant Scimitar GTE - great car to drive, my first plastic (well, fibreglass) bodied car. Still regret selling it.
Range Rover - goes anywhere, but with a huge thirst for fuel
Peugeot 505 saloon - another fine French car
Dodge Intrepid - my first American car. Interesting and stylish, great airconditioning

And the more recent and current vehicles

1983 Matra Murena - similar configuration to the Fiero but (I think) more stylish - 2.2 mid engine, fibreglass body, drives like a dream




1990 Mercedes Benz 560 SEC - brilliant engineering, phenomenal performance, great long-distance cruiser.... and very fast




1993 Jeep Cherokee - old faithful, has been halfway across the world, copes with deserts, mountains, snow and rocks, and keeps going. That's a roof tent on top



The most recent acquisition is a Lexus IS300 Sportcross - no pics yet, but it's solid, stylish and practical, great for daily driving.

Finally two others worth a mention

mid-1970s Pontiac Firebird - nearly killed me. Good in a straight line, rubbish roadholding, slides round corners like melting ice-cream on a stove.
mid-2000s Toyota Land Cruiser - saved my life. Off-roading and exploring in the deserts of the Middle East, no other vehicle could have got me through and out of those dunes.

      Can't understand why the image links in my post are not working. I used the "image" button when composing my post, and PFFCode is apparently on, and the pics are on the internet (on the Snapfish site, which is like photobucket) so the links should work....

What am I doing wrong?

EDIT: problem solved. It was a matter of copying the correct link for the image - I had to get "under the hood" of the website.

      I had a 89 Cavalier Z-24 and a 87 GT both at the same time, both 5 speed's. Its impossible to tell by seat of the pants as their considerably different cars even if the engines and trans are essentially the same. But I think the Z-34 may have been a little faster, it was a little lighter. The Z-24 had almost 200,000 miles on it and ran real good. I've never compared road test 1/4 mile times but I bet it would beat most 3rd gen Camero's. I did put new spark plugs, wires, fuel filter, and air filter when I got it. It was completely reliable but failed smog once due to a leaky exhaust pipe to manifold connection.

      Both of mine are automatics, and I would say the fiero is a little quicker, but it has a fresh rebuild on the motor. The Z has 180,000 (hard) miles and extra weight from the stereo to drag around.

      Despite my advanced age(76), I have had very few cars over my lifetime especially when compared to others here. I like cars but I always seemed to hang onto my cars until they became maintenance hogs and then I'd sell. this list is in order of when I bought them(and I think you'll like the second one--I did)

1946 Ford V8 "Business Coupe (no back seat) I paid $150 or it--my first car

1957 Corvette with 283 engine and 270hp (wrecked and sold for parts in 1959 or early 1960)

1949 Chevy coupe

1950 Chevy 4dr

1955 Olds--a very good car in my estimation

1964 Chevy Bel Air

1964 Mustang

1968 Chevelle (my first new car)

1967 Datsun Ex wife's car

1971 Mercury Comet (second new car) Ex wife's car

1964 Mustang My car after divorce

1967 Pontiac Tempest inline 6

1970 Sabaru (bought in Okinawa from a wrecking yard)

1971 Dodge pickup

1964 Chevy Bel Air (bought back from my Mom)

1985 Opel sedan--not exported to the US. Used in Germany while employed there
1982 German Ford for my wife to use in Germany

1993 Olds Cutlass Ciera
1953 Chevy pickup for me to drive

1988 Buick Le Sabre for me

2003 Chevy TrailBlazer for wife
1984 Fiero with 3800SC for me (still for sale $2000)

2008 Pontiac Grand Prix for me
1989 Chevy 1500 pickup

After looking at the list, I suppose I have had more than I thought but I spent nearly 18 years overseas in the Army and nearly nine years in Germany after the Army so I still have far to go to catch up with some folks here.

      Let's see if I can remember them all....

67 Mustang convertible, 289 3 speed manual. Was my dad's car, but he let me drive it whenever I wanted...it was my high school car.

70 Mach 1, 351 Cleveland automatic. My first car.

65 Mustang hardtop, K Code 289 Hipo 4 speed. Bought this car for $400.

69 Shelby GT 350. Had this car 1 week, got run off the Interstate and rolled it. Took a year to rebuild it, and about 6 months to sell it.

66 Volkswagen Beetle. Wife's car...cost all of $200.

67 Volkswagen Beetle. Flared fiberglass fenders with slotted aluminum wheels, custom blue paint.

70 Mustang Boss 302. Bought this car with a freshly rebuilt engine for $2200. Flew from Denver to Pennsylvania, bought the car, and drove it back to Colorado all in one weekend.

79 Pontiac Trans Am. WS6 suspension, 4 speed, but it only had a 301 V8. Still, it was surprising how well that little V8 pulled that car around. Sold it because I hardly ever drove it.

83 Toyota SR5 4X4 pickup. A replacement for the Trans Am. Nice truck, but buying it was a mistake.

76 Triumph TR7. The wife's car. A lot of fun, but a headache when it came to fixing it. Lots of gremlins.

67 Shelby GT 350. Bought it as a restoration project for my dad and I. Lost interest when my dad passed on, and it sat in my garage for 11 years until I sold it to buy a new boat.

Ford Fiesta. Don't remember the year...wife's car.

68 Ford Ranchero. Interesting vehicle, but this one was a real beater

84 Olds Firenza. The wife's car.

84 Mustang GT 302 4 speed. A fun car to drive, but the tires for the TRX suspension were a pain to find, and expensive when you did find them.

76 Chevy Silverado 4X4 pickup.

79 Ford Bronco II, Eddie Bauer trim package. I drove the wheels off of that truck.

94 Pontiac Grand Prix SE. Bought this one brand new...the wife's car again. After we bought the TSX, this became my daily driver. Put 226,000 miles on it, and owned it 21 years before I finally sold it.

86 Dodge Shelby Charger Turbo. A true tin can POS, but it ran hard with that 2.2 turbo 4 cylinder engine.

99 Ford F150 4X4 pickup, shortbox/stepside, Lariet trim package. A NICE truck. I should have kept it.

86 Fiero SE. V6 5 speed, my son's first car.

86 Fiero GT. V6 4 speed. MY car.

99 Mustang GT, 4.6 L automatic. Was my daily driver for several years, then sat in the garage while I drove the Grand Prix. Sold after 16 years of ownership.

2011 Acura TSX. Bought new...wife's car.

2010 Acura MDX Tech/Entertainment. My current daily driver. Bought this to replace the Grand Prix.

2007 Shelby GT Mustang. Not a GT350 or 500...those are built in totality by Ford. This one was shipped, brand new, to Shelby's facility in Vegas for modification. Fun toy.

I'm sure I've forgotten one or two, but that's the gist of it. I've also owned a few motorcycles, with an 82 Kawasaki LTD 1000 as my current ride, and have also owned a couple of boats.

Yah, it is pretty cool. I do have a lot more money in than I am used to having tied up in a car. I won't disclose what I actually have in it, but let's just say it's less than a lot of people pay for a new pickup truck.

And, this car, like most of them (or just about any older car), does have issues. If you want to learn more about them and might think about owning one, you can find out quite a bit on Ferrarichat.com.

      Short list for me compared to some of you, but in order of acquisition:

1976 Chevy Monte Carlo. 350, white with dark red vinyl interior and no AC. Dark vinyl: Such fun on hot Michigan summer days.
1976 Chevy Monte Carlo 400, 4bbl. Silver with blue/silver cloth interior. Ah, cloth. And AIR CONDITIONING.
***both of these had the front bench seats. Always wished one had the swivel buckets- such a novel thing. ***
1987 Fiero GT. Blue. Currently has a 3.4 and is about 90% restored. Bought when I graduated from college in 1991.
1986 Jeep CJ-7. Dark gray, straight 6, 4 speed manual. Paid $4900 for it in 1992 and had put over $6000 into it when we sold it in the late 90s or early 2000s. Fun car to drive around with the top and doors off...on the ten days a year when it's warm enough to do that in Seattle.
1995 Toyota 4Runner. V6, five speed. Bought used in 1999 or so. Great car. Sold to a friend.
1999 Toyota Sienna. Light metallic green, V6. Still own but will be selling soon. Was wifey's daily driver.
2005 Toyota 4Runner. V6, auto. Dark blue. Still own; my daily driver. Also a great car.
2008 Saturn Sky Redline. Red on red/black leather. Fun car. Sunny day car only; rarely have the top up. 290HP/340TQ. Has about 23,000 miles now.
1959 Austin Healey Sprite (Mark 1 "Bugeye"). Wifey's fun car. British racing green on doeskin interior. Upgraded 1275cc engine with Datsun five speed (both are very common upgrades to the Mark 1). Front disk brakes. Such a fun, FUN car to drive around.
2016 Subaru Outback. Wifey's daily driver.

So yes, at the moment we have six cars here, with one essentially for sale. Here are the fun/sporty ones:

      Hey carwhisperer,

From what you've posted, you seem to do some pretty wild conversions and such. I have an idea I've been kicking around and I'm curious if you think it's doable/worth contemplation or possible pursuit.

I was REALLY into minitrucks back in the day. Had my 84 Nissan Kingcab slammed with air shocks, loud stereo and several body mods. Well, I have been looking for a older Bullet Side Datsun 620 (prefer kingcab because of how I like to sit) in restoreable shape. I recall seeing I think it was a Toyota where the owner had taken the FWD engine and trans from a Ford Taurus SHO and installed it in the bed area of the truck. I had also box notched my truck, so I got to thinking with an actual frame rather than a unibody, modifications like that would be easier. That made me start looking at sports car chassis.

Lotus Elise.


Vector W8.


C5 Corvette.


Mostly, body on frame rather than unibody. Some are kind of psuedo frame/unibody.

I also remember reading about a kit car a highschool auto shop class in Pittsburgh, I think it was, built as a hybrid project. The used the K1 Attack kit for use with the Honda Accord. The car itself is kind of neat looking but the front suspension was a departure from what is so common. That caught my eye.





So, what I have been thinking on is a minitruck project. I don't want it to be the 1/2" off the ground with out air in the shocks like I had way back when. I don't want it to be the terrible handling that I had way back when. But I do want it to be stylishly low and handle well. My idea was that with a frame I could move the engine to mid configuration like in that truck I saw so many years ago in the magazine. I know it's a popular engine as far as Fiero's go, but the 3800 has a lot of appeal to me for it's power and durability along with fuel consumption. This would of course require a redesign of the rear suspension to go along with the FWD trans being used back there. That would free up the front engine bay which could be redesigned for better suspension up there along the lines of the K1 Attack, but lower profile so it's not sticking up out of the hood. Essentially, I want to upgrade the suspension to something much better while making the truck mid engined. I would probably do a body drop as well to retain suspension travel while still having that low appearance. I don't want to do air bags.

Anyways, considering the projects you've worked on, do you think that's workable? I do know how to weld, worked in a machine shop for about 10 years, have been wrenching on cars since I was 17 including about 10 engine or transmission swaps and have torn down and repaired tractors quite a bit as well.

Oh, this is the frame from a 620 (a little modified with what looks to be a V6 on it) and also a picture of a 620.

      Oh, definitely do it! I love old Datsun pickups, that would be incredible.

My project idea that's never likely to happen is to get a 521 or 620 short bed and build what's essentially a Japanese model A pickup build. Motorcylce fenders over the front wheels, a deuce coupe radiator, high chrome L16-20 with a pair of sidedrafts, and a cherrywood bed. Of course it would be awful tempting to lengthen the front and stick a L28 out there with a trio of sidedrafts.

Yeah, I like the Datsun trucks the most. Another option I considered was a 1st gen. Chevy Luv. My father had a Luv when I was a teen and I had been considering buying it from him to lower and all but I wanted a kingcab so I had room for woofers and ended up with a 84 Nissan/Datsun 720 (transition year model). Probably a good thing in retrospect thinking about the rear suspension on the Luv. Moving the axle from below to above the leaf springs would have lowered it in the rear about 3" without the use of blocks but that would have left just about no suspension travel so it would have needed notched right off. At least with the 720 I was able to use 3" blocks that lasted me 5 years or so before I wanted to go lower and did the notch along with pulling leafs and adding air shocks all around. I've tried to think of another truck in case I just can't find a Datsun 620 in decent shape (I know I have little chance of finding a rust free one). The Luv is one possible but it's also a common truck for doing a V8 swap into so finding one isn't all that easy either. The other hard to find but high on the list that would work is the 1st gen, Dodge D50/Ram 50 or Plymouth Arrowhead. I would prefer the Datsun but could live with the Dodge.

      In order of ownership:
1. 1994 Ford Taurus SHO (Sold)
2. 1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula
3. 1998 Ford Taurus GL (Traded to have Fiero painted)
4. Technically 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee (Scrapped)
5. 1989 Toyota MR2 base

The story with the Jeep goes so, I bought the Jeep from a close friend who didn't know much of cars. It had some problem with a loud lifter, something I read was common with the 4.0l Jeep engine so I went ahead and bought it for $450. I drove about a block away from his house and the engine seized up. Being a close friend he gave me my money back and I believe they scrapped it. Technically I owned it as we had signed over the title and everything. I was lucky I knew him otherwise I'd have been screwed. Although I think at that price I could've parted it out and made my money back.

The '98 Taurus I bought for $400 then traded to a guy for a garage paint job on my Fiero. Not the best but worth what I essentially paid.

By far my favourite is the Fiero, but there are still days I long for my SHO.

I think it's funny, at age 18 I've owned more cars than my dad has owned in his entire life! My direct family never had the car bug like I do. Something I got from my uncles and even my grandfathers. My dad has owned a Corolla, Grand Marquis, and now a Traverse

      I have a lot of fond memories of my '89 SHO. I had a first-month production car without a rev limiter and a total base model with no leather or sunroof or anything. It was light and could hit 70mph in 2nd without breaking a sweat. It was *really* fast if you could get the crappy transmission to play nice - talk about long throws! My favorite memory was taking a couple friends out to a late dinner when an early '90s Celica pulled up the light next to me - little impromptu street race between a 4-door family hauler and a Japanese sports car. Not even an issue, the SHO left it in the dust. Next light, same thing, even worse. With two car lengths between us a third car passed the Celica in my wake, and next light a 3rd gen Camaro was sitting next to us. My two friends were dying - we're three up in a Ford Taurus and an F-body wants a try! Light went green, a little smoke from the right front wheel and the Camaro was in the rear view a few moments later. We had to pull over I was laughing so hard at that point. That car was unstoppable in the early '90s. But, by the mid '90s cars were getting a lot more power - Nissan has the 230hp VQ motors, BMW had the 300hp M62s, and pony cars got real V8s again - and the SHO didn't seem quite the powerhouse it originally had. Too bad the next generation cars were such a disappointment!

The 95 was the driver. The 96 was bought with a bad engine but a nice interior and body so I could swap parts over to the 95 and fix it up.






Is that color Neon a standard color for that year? I've seen one that looks just like that one at a dealership where I live. I think the wheels look very similar as well. I'll have to go to that dealership and take a pic to see for sure.

In short, No.

Long answer, I had about 1/2 a gallon of a yellow left from another job, about a quart of a red and a little white. I just mixed the yellow and red and then added a little bit of white at a time until I felt it was muted enough. I kept telling my wife I was going to paint one of our cars orange someday and the Neon was the recipient. Overall, I liked it .

I have seen other Neons with a similar orange color though so I believe they did make them in a orange like that. At the time they made Neons in a variety of muted colors. They had a muted blue, auqamarine and purple among others.

Well, I'm in the Ogden area of Utah. Evanston is about 70 miles from me. My daughter had the car and sold it to a friend of hers. She had problems with it stalling.. She took it to her brother who I was told worked in a garage. They "tried" to fix it. It had compression. It had spark. It had fuel pressure. However, it just kept running rough and then stalling on her. I told them if it has all of that check the injectors because it sat at my daughters place for a year or so without being driven. I told them it probably just has clogged injectors after sitting that long. Her brother instead bought a new coil pack for it. No change. They supposedly acquired a different computer, still no change. They never did check the injectors instead opted to call a auto wrecker. If you ever stop to look at it, see if inside the door jambs are still blue. If they are, it's the same one. They might have fixed it rather than scrap it. I never got around to painting inside the jambs or the inside door frames and such. Honestly I didn't take much time painting the car really. I just did not like the faded out blue with peeling clear. So I sprayed what I had on it and saved the quart or so that was left to do detail work if I kept it or ever got around to it. Daughter ended up needing a car so... Really though, that looks just like it. If the wheels are Tenzo it probably is. Oh, another way. Check the vin on the dash verses the vin on the door. If they are different, then that's another indicator. The 96 had quite a few dents in and the 95 I had didn't. So I pulled a bunch of the body parts off the 95 and swapped them with the 96. I also did a lot of the interior panels as well. Another thing, if it has the DOHC humped hood on it (which the pic looks like it does) but it's a SOHC engine, the hood came of the 95 with the DOHC engine in it. The 96 hood had a bunch of rust along the front edge.

Sounds about right. It was somewhere around 85k when my daughter bought it from us. She drove it for a couple of months and then her and her fiancee got a place together. He had a Saturn SL and a Ford F-250 and since they are planning on getting married she started driving his Saturn. She parked it in my garage for about a year then sold it. Pulled the stereo I had in it out though before she did. They are looking at replacing the Saturn with a Toyota 4Runner and she wants me to install the stereo in it like I had in the Neon before she bought it.

This is a while building pic and then a done pic. You can see the blue on the upper edge and the purple trunk lid corners from the 95 body parts I swapped it with.





Edit: Ahh, what the heck some picks from the painting to. I only had evenings to devote to working on it so I painted it in steps.





Over all, I really enjoyed that car. I wouldn't mind having another one possibly but I'd want a 2 door and would rather swap a different engine in. The stock engines are interference engines .

If that is the car, which honestly I think it is, I wonder if it still has the sub boxes in it. We just pulled the 10's and left the enclosures.

Funny you mention that, one of my most vivid memories is looking down the long hood of that car at a ditch when I punched it in 2nd going up a hill not realizing it had a lot more power then what I was used to. Thankfully I'd been taught to countersteer by my brother in law for gravel driving and held it . Decades ago, I was 19 and pretty dumb at the time.

The thing that's kept me from getting another one if Toyota couldn't care less about old Supra parts. A lot of the MA61 parts are NLA and finding parts for the much more common MA70s (3rd gen Supras) is hard. They just want you to buy a new car instead *eyeroll*

Yes, I've found the Fiero quite refreshing with the support out there. Never was much for the Supra or the Supercoupe I have for that matter. You really have to dig to find anything for them. The Fiero is a nice change.

      The Pontiac OHC 6 was a great little engine that was underappreciated at it's time. The Sprint 6 high output version even had a 4 barrel carb, but everyone wanted a V8 back then. Had the OHC 6 stayed in production until the Arab Oil Embargo in the 70's, it could have found renewed life as a more economical performance engine. So much potential, but making power with a simple OHV V8 was easier and cheaper.

      Current motor pool consists of:

2004 GMC Sierra 1500
2000 Pontiac Trans Am Convertible
1992 Mercury Grand Marquis
1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula

The GMC is a recent purchase so I could retire the TA from daily driver duties. I was racking the miles up on it WAY too fast. Now I can spend some time to refresh the TA a bit and enjoy it for pleasure driving. And I no longer have to risk driving it in Winter weather.

The Mercury was my dad's. I inherited it when he passed back in 2002. I've tried to keep it running, but when the fuel pump quit I've just parked it and it's just taken up space since then. I'm thinking it's time to finally part with it.

And then there's the Fiero. I've got a lot of history with that car. Bought it in 2001. It was my daily driver for many years, but the last 2 years it's mostly just sat in the driveway. Too many cars and not enough time. I'm reluctantly thinking it may be time to sell it as well. I don't really want to let it go, but I can't bear the idea of it sitting and rotting away and would rather someone else enjoy it. It seems all my "car" time gets devoted to the TA these days anyway and I barely have enough time to do what I want with it.

Some past rides included;
'69 Firebird 350. My first car I bought in High School, slinging a LOT of burgers at McDonald's to pay for it.
'72 Pontiac Trans Am. Bought it shortly after graduating from Community College with my first real full time income.
'87 Buick Grand National. My first new car. Bought it in the Fall of 1987, right after the stock market crash.

I had both the '69 and '72 at the same time. I sold the '69 and used the money from it as a down payment on the GN. Both the '72 TA and GN got sold when I went back to school to study Mechanical Engineering at NC State.

That car is probably the best car naming in the history of hot hatches. The car itself is stupid fun too but the name was Carroll Shelby genius

      In order of when I first purchased them:

1993 Dodge Spirit 2.5L TBI - Still own, but it's a project. I'll divulge plans once its completed which I hope will be in time for my HS reunion. Let's just say it no longer has the engine or trans it came with.
1992 Dodge Spirit R/T - Still own. 107k miles, near mint condition. Not selling, hopefully ever.
1989 Ford Festiva - Bought as cheap economical transportation, but unfortunately it died so I sold it to a guy who was going to turn it into a SHOgun. Not sure if he followed through on that.
1966 Ford Mustang C-code Convertible - Still own. Car is #s matching and was built with the one year only Emberglow exterior color option. It's a long term project that I doubt I will ever get to. I've estimated it will take about 25-30k in parts and labor to restore. Am open to selling.
2000 Buick Century - Sold to my brother who drove it until last year when it was scrapped. I once dreamed of dropping in a 3800sc, never was serious about it though.
1987 Pontiac Fiero GT - Still own. Finishing up a 3.4L engine swap.
2005 Chevy Cobalt LS sedan - My wife bought brand new off the lot. Drove it until last year when the transmission went out. It doesn't meet our needs or family size anymore so looking to sell.
2010 Dodge Charger SXT AWD - My daily driver.
2014 Chrysler Town and Country - My wife's daily driver.

270 HP? Was that a non-Fuelie? My dad has a 57 that he bought when he got back from Vietnam for $900.00. It's sitting in storage now, with a LONG way to go before seeing the road. I rally want to frame swap it, and completely upgrade it mechanically. Wanting to go for the Pro-Touring/Resto-Mod thing. I have the LS1 and T-56 from my 2001 Z28 that I plan to put into it. It's an LS6 block and intake, need the LS6 heads though, and I have a cam, that I can throw in, and give it a little over 400 RWHP. The original got the 57 is long gone. It was used as a race car for a time.

      OK slackers, here we go!
Kind of in order of appearance.... and this is probably only 1/3 of them.... some, I don't want to remember heheheh, old age is making me forget all my past fun toys!
Fords, Pontiac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Triumph, IHC, AMC, FIAT (fix it again Tony.... lol) etc....., I just loved cars!

1963 Chevrolet Wagon (Still "have it" as in the title is in my safe, but car has been junked)

1958 Ford Galaxy 500

1955 Studebaker (nice car with a swapped Chevrolet straight 6 in it... really ran and drove great after the swap!)
1969 AMC AMX
1967 Triumph Spitfire
1963 Triumph TR4-A
1971 Triumph Spitfire

1971 Challenger (pistol grip shifter and all!)
1972 Fiat Sport Spyder
1974 Chevrolet Vega
1975 Chevrolet Vega

1971 Pontiac Firebird
1969 Opel GT
1976 Mercury Cougar XR7
1975 Ford Granada
1976 Ford Granada
1976 Ford Mustang II..... yeah, I know.....
1972 AMC Matador
1963 IHC Scout
1970 IHC Scout II
1968 Pontiac Firebird

2006 Mustang GT
2011 Chevrolet HHR
2010 Chevrolet HHR.... the wife's and it has remote start that I am not allowed to enjoy .
1999 S10 ZR2 (my favorite vehicle besides the Fiero, but 15mpg keeps me from driving it daily).
Each one of the above listed cars left my hands in much better shape than when I got them. Proud of that fact!
(except the '06 Mustang GT which I totaled on my way to work the last day I was going to drive it and then put it away for winter..... don't ask, my fault).

And.........
The Fiero's in order of appearance
1984 Pontiac Fiero Base, New and still in the wrapper!
1987 Pontiac Fiero

1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula
1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula
1988 Fiero GT T-top

They are harder to find parts for it seems, than an '88 Fiero is!
Already belong to the Solstice/Sky forum.

Also curious about a Chrysler Crossfire...... hmmmmm.....
It has been a great adventure, and will continue to be as long as I can drive.

      I've had at least 40 cars/trucks as well as over 20 motorcycles in my life so I won't bore you by listing them all here...

... currently I own the '88 Fiero GT, a '70 Dodge Dart Swinger, an '83 Suzuki Katana and a '17 Suzuki VanVan200. Oh, and an '04 Dodge Dakota 4x4 for a beater.

Tried to link pics but they weren't working.

      Beside the Fiero, I currently own a '14 F150. It is my daily driver but I also use it to haul wood, scrap metals and a small trailer sometimes. I just installed pro comp alloy wheels and a leveling kit on it.
