I just googled the name. Be careful. Several unsatisfied customers.

I google'd their Fiero model and it looks incredibly sketchy. Proportions at 1/43 scale can have liberties but looks like the whole design is just "off". You'd be better off buying one of the Hot Wheels 1/64 Boulevard or Ferris Bueller cars if you're wanting a Fiero die-cast that's affordable and looks good.

Speaking of Fiero models, little off subject here, sorry about that. Out of curious, Fiero84Freak, I see you own a '84 Fiero? I've owned a '84 Fiero SE back in '89 and had to get it traded in when I was in college, but regretted it ever since. There were complication issues that even Pontiac dealer couldn't figure it out. At times, it wouldn't start up when I'm at places. I'd have to wait at least 20 minutes or so. Then, it'd start up. When I take it to the dealer to find out what's wrong with it, it was running fine for the dealer. They said to wait until it actually broke down. Wonder if you ever experienced anything like this?

From my experience...I have had all years. Could have been an ignition module issue (over heated module).

I think you're right, Jaskispyder! Cuz it only happens whenever I'm at places, not at home. So, it has something to do with heat. If I knew then, I would have easily solved this problem and not trade it in at all. I really had fond memories of that Fiero. Anyhow, I just purchased '88 GT this past summer & plan to get it in top running shape. Thanks, Jaskispyder!

Keep a spare ignition module and tools to change.... (V6s have this issue also).

Out of all of my Fieros, my '84 was the only one that left me stuck (in my driveway) with a bad ignition module. I have had V6 modules go out, in the garage.

I plan to buy couple of ICM parts as backup. Which brand is best? One person suggested to buy the cheapest cuz they all are made in China. Here's one from eBay for $10.

What brand do you buy, Jaskispyder? Thanks for your help, Jaskispyder!

Anything other than ICM parts & tools should I be carrying in my Fiero?

Theyre just a dealer, not a manufacturer. Ive got a lot of the cars they have listed from other sources.
