Has anyone done a targa top for the Fiero? I'm not sure if I want to, just toying with the idea. I think it would be nice to have an open top like a T-top but with less weather-stripping are to leak. I also believe it should be a little safer than a convertible since it would still have a B-pillar.

Thoughts?

I wouldn't call that one successful...

Here is a good thread with pics, others who have done it as well as another targa option that keeps the roof structure:

Thanks. I was so excited about the idea, I never thought to check for other threads.

There is one Targa top that I know about in addition to the Dirty Rat attempt. I believe that the owner is Doc John on the forum.
