I saw a D.A.R.E. Fiero with a police light bar recently so out of curiosity I did a Google search for any others. Noticed this car in an archived thread here from 10 years ago...

and then again in a current Craigslist ad...

That WAS a nice car when I first saw it over ten years ago... I asked the shop how much the wanted for it, but owner refused to give price... Said he got more attention by using it on the elevated sign than it could be purchased for... So I guess it just baked up there in the Texas sun the rest of its life....

I saw that car about 5 years ago in the same yard. Doesn't look like it's been touched since! I'd like to put that light bar on an old crown vic!

Why is it even in the junkyard.. to me only cars that aren't easily repaired are junk.. major crash, rust etc.. it's not just junkyards rither, theres 6-7 local-ish Fieros in my area just sitting in someones yard.. never move just wasting away.

How many people new to Fieros complain about how difficult it is to honk the horn and they don't even realize the horn buttons are missing!

Haha.. I admit I tried to get an 88' coupe to honk that way.. I kept pressing the center the paddles were broken off. It was my first Fiero test drive and first Fiero experience ever.
