Almost 36 years old, on my 2nd and 3rd Fiero, I started driving them in 1999 when I owned an 86 SE 2.5 dual exhaust. Now I have an 86 Sports Coupe (heavily modded) and my Indy Track Car #4. (Which is currently home to a swarm of sugar ants.. they like it in the door rubber.) Dang i need to replace that fuel pump!
48 years old (or young depending on the day). Wanted one of these since before they came out. However, college, life, wife, kids, etc. all got in the way. Finally, picked up my 87 GT in 2004. Even though it tends to be a garage queen and gets driven very little, just looking at it, let alone driving it, always makes me smile.
55 years young. Wanted an 86SE v6 in 1986. Purchased a 86 Firebird 5.0 instead. 3 persons did not fit in Fiero. Have owned 3 fieros, first two were 84SE 4 speeds. Found my dream Fiero in 1996. It is a 1986SE v6 4 speed, silver with black ground affects and black spoiler(originally silver). Purchased from original owner in 1996 for $350 had 86k miles, it has 113k miles now. Registered as a classic with state TX and now has the original 1986 license plates on it. I save those plates for 15 years waiting for this year to come. Dont think I will ever part with this car. My 9 year old grandson wants it when he starts driven. We shall see...lol.
Well I have been 50 for the last 25 yrs. I own a 87 GT with a 2006 GP 3800SC series III. And I bet my right foot is just as heavy as any 20 plus guys. Ask any ricer that gives me that look at a stop light

I am 55. I was 29 went the Fiero was introduced in 84. At the time I wanted one because I thought it would be a cool car. Family life won out. I had a Corvair 65 Corsa convertible at the time. Replaced the engine in the Corvair, but it need body work and a top. Drove it a lot but never did fix it. A few years later a bought a 63 Corvair Spyder convertible that I brought home on a trailer. My wife’s only comment was “Did you get the door?” It was in pretty bad shape. I did build that car and showed it. I was my daily driver for 2 years, until I started taking the bus to work in 1990. It went in to storage until 2001. I took it out of storage and started to drive it again. It dropped valve seat on the way home from work. It started missing a couple of blocks from home and died in the driveway. Tried to get the head repaired (welded & new seat) and could not find a local machine shop to do the work. I found a head, put it all back together and sold it. It was bright Corvette white with a red top and interior. It was a fun car to drive.
Since I didn’t have the Corvair as a daily driver, in 2002 I was looking for a daily driver to commute to work. At the time I was driving a ¾ ton Ford pickup. I stumbled across an 88 Fiero on EBay. At the time Fieros were not even on my radar. The car only had 20K and I paid $5600. I told my wife “Where can I get a car with 20K on it for $5600?” I finally got my Fiero. It became my daily driver until 2007 when I got my SKY. I really missed my Corvair convertible. The SKY in now my daily driver. At 51 the SKY was the first new car (second new car in the family) I had ever bought for myself. I saved for a long time to get the car and paid cash. Now that the kid is gone and we have a little disposable income the wife OKed me to start modify the Fiero. Working on a 3800 install with more to come.
We bought a second one for my son to driver to high school/collage. He drove the car for 5 years until he graduated. We sold it as it was not big enough for him to haul his photo equipment.

I will be 23 in one month. I have an '86 GT that I bought in November 2009 and a formula that I bought in march 2010. Spent more on parts than on the car just to get the GT going well, and I don't regret it at all.
