Alright who is going to be the first person to buy one of these, to see if we can fit the transmission in a Fiero.

1.8 liter, 4 cylinder, DOHC Variable Valve Timing Lift-intelligence (VVTL-it), 180 hp
6-speed manual transmission
16" aluminum wheels with all-season tires

Hey, if automakers wanted to make a hot seller for the ladies, they should combine the Pontiac Vibe with the Ford Probe...

The vide is a joint venture between GM and Toyota , hence the high tech engine and tranny layout.

I think you would be frowned upon at shows with a Toyota motor in your Fiero. The 6spd Tranny however would be really nice (Celica GTS) or get a VR6 VW tranny and get the 6spd kit...

Ok now i'm just dreaming....

It looks like a Subaru Forester and a Pontiac Aztek combined.

Looks like somebody is trying to make an Aztec that is not too ugly to drive.. I think they still have a little ways to go..

Pontiac and Toyota combined? Remember the good ole days when you knew what your car was? Before a fancy Toyota was a Lexus, and before a Dodge was really a Mitsubishi underneath?

Sorry.. I've been reading one of my old Lewis Grizzard books and it just makes me a little sentimental....

Actually, I always thought Probes looked gay. I always hear them referred to at butt-Probes. But then, I don't like Fords.

That vibe looks like the product of some ricer who decided to stick his _____ in the gas tank of an Aztek, and this is what came out of it. Whatever happened to Darwin's theory of only the good genes surviving?

Darwins theory only works when things are left alone. Here is the new theory of evolution.

In todays society, science gives everything a greater chance of surviving, especially the weaker of the group (refered to from now on as the "lame") which are protected from harm by the stronger beings (lets call them, "normal") . The normal do this to show off their superiority, yet say it is because they feel obligated to help their fellow beings. The nurtured lame eventually become stronger than their protectors and, because they were treated as second class beings who can't do anything without a helping hand, destroy the normal that, if they would have minded their own buisiness, would still be around.
Then the lame all become car designers.

It looks like an aztec that got washed on the wrong temperature and shrank.
