You know the Fire comments remind me of a conversation we had at the Dells this year.

I was talking to Greg (of Tina & Greg fame) The decklid of his car was open.... 2 old timers, they had to be from the Square dance group, came up & one of them made the Fire comment loud enough that Greg & I could hear it. We weren't standing by my car, so I didn't have to listen to that stuff, so I started to turn to walk away. But 1st I said what kind of car do you have? He said he had a '40's something Diamond Reo pickup...... I simply, in a matter of fact voice, said I heard all of those had burned to the ground years ago. The other old timer said "how did you know that his truck burned up last week? LOL

Made my day & a highlight of the weekend

I've had my Fiero for 2 months and I can't believe how many people have randomly started talking to me about it. It has probably happened once a week since I got it.

Most ask what year it is and how many miles are on it. A couple have said "Didn't those catch fire?" One guy asked "Is that one of the good ones?"

I came out of the store once and the two older guys were standing standing there talking about it. When I walked up they asked me how it ran and if I liked it. One guy at the gas station told me it looked like it was in good shape. I had one guy at a stop light start talking to me through his open window, telling me how much he loves these cars. He was asking me where I got it and if I liked it...

The funniest one was when I first got it, I parked at work and was crossing the parking lot when this girl was driving by. She stopped and started asked me what kind of a car it was. She said all matter of fact, "I don't believe it. By bother had one of those. I'm trippin'. I'm gonna to come back and take a picture of it."

HAHA I went to several salvage yards trying to get a door for my friend's Mercury Mystique.

4 times in 1 day... ONE DAY, we got the exact word for word quote when we asked salvage yard owners if they had any Fieros
"I haven't seen one of them on the road in like 5 years".

4 times, 1 day. I promise. We only hit up like 7 yards, but the odds that 4/7 people we ask said the same exact thing. On the 4th time they said that, we (my friend and I) finished the sentence with him.
We laughed so hard. The guy looked at us weird. I guess it was 1 of those days for Texas salvage yard owners.
Was hard to believe they all had the same exact choice of words...

"Do you know how fast you were going? License, registration, and proof of insurance please."

Not really, but it has happened several times.

Mostly the normal "wow, that's really nice" or "I / so and so had one, it was great. Never should have got rid of it."

"You know these catch on fire, right? Thats why they stopped making them."

"You got a Fiero?! My ______ had 7 of those."

"You know there's people out there who stuff V8's in the back of those cars?" (Yeah I do. I want to be one of those people.)

First day of my college shop class the teacher went around the classroom asking each student what kind of car they drove. I told him that i drive an '87 Pontiac Fiero GT. He points his finger at me, smiles, and says, "That's awesome!" (He has an '88 Trans-Am GTA with a 400+ HP 383 stroker, built 700R4, and a GM 12 bolt with 3.73 gears. So he's a little biased towards Pontiac's)

"Look Dad, two Corvettes!" (kid about 8 or 9 said this as I was getting out of my car and my friend was getting out if his dad's '96 C4 Corvette.)

In shop class again, a teacher from a different class came over to me while setting my car up on the lift (properly) and said, "This is a nice car, don't see a lot of them anymore. These could be worth big money someday. And don't let anyone tell you they catch fire, that was only on Iron Dukes, and only in '84."

I've had three "nice car" comments today from just running around doing errands. I think that's a new high one day total for me. (and it's dirty from recent rain, go figure)

I've been to a few shows this year, and I hear a lot of " I had one of those years ago and I'm sorry I got rid of it." Been hearing that a lot more then " Don't they burn up."
