Another Manhattan, NY spotting: a 88 Red GT (red body, red lower mouldings, rear wing, aero nose) Didn't get a real long look. I was flying up the FDR in my Monte and they were on an on-ramp. I want to say around 1pm last Thursday 2/9.
While it's great to walk out each morning and see that our Fieros are still in the driveway and weren't stolen overnight, the parking lot, highway and other locations spottings are what I had intended this thread to be about. Thanks everyone for keeping it on track.
If you want some cheap business cards to drop on vehicles, they're easy to design and print using Avery business card stock. I put the club logo on the front with my personal contact info and on the back I put directions to where we hold our meetings.
I've seen 4 over the past 3 weeks. First was in Michigan about 5 minutes from my parents' house in Swartz Creek (near Flint), it's been there for years I believe, can't say for sure though (silver notchback). The 2nd was in the local mall parking lot (red, I think it was a fastback). 3rd was a red notchback in Indiana (we were stopped alongside the expressway), and the 4th was a red fastback in Tucson at the Oracle/Hardy Rd. Cirkle K gas station. I've seen two others, one was a red 4-cylinder notchback that may have belonged to a member here (saw it at Taco Bell near Oracle/Magee Rds.), and another was a white notchback (possibly 4-cyl.) parked near Thornydale/Ina Rds.
I just refounded the indy pace car I seen a while back. it sits at an auto shop around the corner from my house. I asked the shop owner if the owner of the car may be interested in selling. so he's going to ask. it has a little rust, and the car appears rough. it has an auto, 2.5 non sd4 but it had red carpet on the floor and doors, and what appeared to be almost brand new looking fiero book. this is the only fiero I know besides mine in the two cities I am in. the guy who owns it is a used car dealer. maybe he'll let it go cheap and on his own finance. maybe 1k? if it doesn't run. but its a true indy. if i got it I would keep it original. just restore it. ill get pictures later. its got a side scoop too lol.
There is a Mera in Hooper (ish), Utah I saw a Yellow Fast back a few weeks ago In Layton, Utah in a fresh market parking lot. i parked next to it and waited for the guy to walk out so i could talk with him.
Saw a black 86 or 87 fastback in Leland Illinois over the weekend. My son actually saw it but we didn't have time to snap a pic of it. I may run back that way and ask about it though. Looked like it had been sitting a while but seemed to be in fair shape. Kind of parked next to a big garage at a place that looked like it did metal work.
Honestly I have never seen one running where I'm from. We have a few that sit but don't run- (I bought one of them) But I have never seen one on the road and I drive about 200 miles or more a day.

There's one in my neighborhood, a 88 silver base coupe. Had my eyes on it for the past few years, last week it showed up on Craigslist . Got it for $800 and now it's in my front yard. Not exactly the Fiero I wanted,but it will do for now until I buy a GT.
While in the 88 coupe, I pulled up beside a red 86GT today on Pleasant Hill Road at N. Berkeley Lake Road in Duluth, Ga. I rolled down the window, waved, blew the horn and yelled, but he just sat there looking ahead. He made a left turn onto N. Berkeley Lake Road and disappeared. Didn't think there was much need to chase him.
