Lil older, driving cross country.. Chevette, Mazda 323

I've got a '99 Grand Am that's my daily driver, although I drive the Fiero more often since it's more reliable.
Before that, I had a '72 Trans Am. And the list goes on from there.

Several GM S-trucks (still have one of those), 88 Firebird Formula, 76 Chevy Monza 2+2 w/350 4-speed. 74 MG Midget.
Many more, but you get the idea.
I've pretty much been a gearhead since I began talking.

For some reason all of my pre-Fiero cars were from the 1981 model year.

A Pontiac Acadian, an Oldsmobile Cutlass, one-and-a-half Honda Preludes, and my first which was an AMC Spirit. By strange coincidence, that AMC's powerplant was a predecessor to the Fiero's Iron Duke, and the first Fiero I owned was a 2M4.

The first car that I was able to own/drive was a 88GT.

^^^ I had a lot of fun with my 77 Scout SSII that I bought new in 78. Sold it to my 4-wheelin' buddy.



^^^ Only had this 71 Satellite Sebring for about a year. Wish I could have it back again.

The big one was 2nd gen F-bodies.

Had an 84 Firebird SE "Knight Rider" (black t-top with tan recarro interior) 305 5-speed
85 Trans am (305 auto) hardtop
87 GTA 350 5-speed t-top.

also in the stable (noteable) has been a 71 and 73 sattelite, 72 challenger, 67 mustang coupe.

a whole wack of unimpressive econo-box commuters. (cars tend not to last long when you commute a total of 250km a day, so I went quite a while trading every 6 months)

(dunno if you would call that "after" fiero's, since I got (and sold) my 1st Indy in the late 80's and most of these came after that)

- 1959 Zundapp "Super Sabre" motorcycle. A basket case resurrected.
- 1950 Jaguar XK120. Partially restored.
- 1951 Riley saloon (4-door sedan), into which I swapped a 215 cu-in aluminum Buick V8.
- 1953 Jaguar Mk VII saloon. My parents friends thought it was a Rolls Royce.
- 1953 Austin Healey 100-4. Fully restored.
- 1962 Jaguar 3.8 Mk II saloon, into which I swapped a Chevrolet Muncie 4-speed transmission.
- 1967 BMW R69S motorcycle. My first new motorcycle.
- 1968 Porsche 912. My first new car.
- 1969 Porsche 911S. My last new car. My best car ever.
- 1972 BMW R75 motorcycle. Disappointing.
- 1980 Porsche 928. Obsessively overengineered.
- 1983 BMW R100RS motorcycle. My last new motorcycle ... or old, for that matter.
- 1993 Dodge Caravan. Old age beckons.
- 1991 Buick Regal. Old age beckons.
- 1980 VW diesel rabbit sedan. Sad but true.
- 1998 Dodge Caravan. Old age beckons.
- 1988 Pontiac Fiero Formula. Project car.

Does anyone see a pattern here?

My aunt had a 1972 Plymouth Roadrunner like that. Vitamin C Orange, 340 V-8 (underrated engine), those white racing stripes Mopar was crazy about. I LOVED that car, and if I ever get stinking rich, I will buy the nicest stock copy I can find. And since I'm dreaming, a 70 Superbird and a 68 Roadrunner would be nice too. Roadrunner/Superbirds are my favorite of the musclecars, of which there are numerous excellent examples.

I have built 2 73 Dodge Chargers and one 74 Camaro.

I have had a lot of cars, but those are the only ones I have connected with besides the Fieros that I have owned.
If I ever get the itch to buy another type of car it will be an old Dodge of some kind. I would love a 72 Cuda if any of you have one sitting in the yard you dont want.

Damn, I've had lots of transportation before my Fieros, but nothing like my Fieros. Heck, I've had many "hot" rides previous to getting into these little two seater monsters but nothing ever grabbed me like my notchies. I could provide a list but once I got my Formulas, they all paled in comparison in the fun to drive arena.

Freedom isn't Free, it's paid for with the blood and dreams of those that have gone before us.
My imagination is the only limiting factor to my Fiero. Well, there is that money issue.

Wouldn;t that be kind of redundant in alot of australlia? I mean so what if it is not allowed on the roads, isn;t there ALOT of dirt that will still allow you to drive it to and from town?

Most of the population live on or near tar sealed roads.
You would really have to travel to find a dirt road these days. Those dirt roads that are still used are in bad conditions and can only be used as 4 wheel frive tracks or fire trails. to up keep those tracks the council or the Traffic management will put heaps of sand on it.
it is really hard to find a Baja bug these days . if you cut a bettle up and make one . thye next time you need to go for a registration insection[ thats one a year] it will not pass and you will not be allowed to drive it on the roads again or you can change it back to a normal beetle every year. i really don't see the sense in doing that.
When i had my Baja bug i had a Type 2 kombie 1600cc motor with the type 3 twin carbies on it. using tunnel rams .
those days were lots of fun in the sand hills.
These days you have to pay to drive on the sand hills and with the gas prices i now live in the mountains. its too far to the beach now.
For the others
Type One is a bettle
Type two is a Kombie
Type three is a Notch back/station wagon.
Type four is a updated version called a Veriant
thats the thoughts here , you guys may call it different.
fieros are the 1980's version of a very fast beetle. the motor is in the back, the spare is up front... thats about all ...hahaha
the parts of VW's are way to highly prices for me now and hard to get. i rather have fieros anyway
