After keeping my eyes open for the last year, I've recently purchased a 5-spd '98 JDM Subaru Impreza STi wagon... 300 HP, AWD, room for five adults, cargo space in the back, goes like hell. I'm basically spending almost all of my free time reading over various Subaru forums (to learn about this new to me platform), and then putting this knowledge to work by restoring and "tweaking" the Impreza.

I still have multiple Fieros, but the plan is to cull the herd and just keep my '88 Formula.

12. Owned various Fieros over the past almost 18 years. Currently own one. Trying to get rid of it. I still think they're great cars but my health & finances preclude Fiero ownership. Probably never get another one after this one is gone.

I'm somewhere in the 3-4-5 continuum. I currently have a complete custom front suspension and a bunch of go-fast goodies for the engine sitting on shelves, waiting for me to stop finding other things to do.

Edit to add:

To be more specific, I will basically always be at #3, because my Fiero is a perpetual build project. However, I do have other interests. And the Fiero often takes back-seat to them. So I sometimes wander into #4 or even #5 territory. But at some point, I'll get the urge to tinker with the Fiero, and cool stuff will happen.

I can also tell you that my Fiero won't be going away anytime soon. I've owned the car for over 19 years now. And I'll probably keep it until I'm too old and decrepit to drive or work on it.

I'm in the 4,5,6 area. Won't sell my Fiero but it's hard to do much with 3 kids under 5. My 5 series BMW is as much fun, as modded as my Fiero and I can fit everyone in it to go to a car show or just for a cruise.

I'm 3-5. My wife has been 7 from the beginning. She cried the night i brought my first fiero home. She's never ridden in it......it's the other woman. Somehow, she knew, before I did, that I'd spend countless hours daydreaming about driving, modding, swapping, and wrenching on my fiero. I've had to take a step back recently to pay more attention to her (the wife) and it seems to be paying off. I'll be back in the garage before you know it!

I am in the 3-5 range and get to daily drive a 382 whp Fiero... The fun for me is solving unique engine/transmission/brake swap challenges... I find the cookie cutter stuff a little boring.

I purchased my 88 fiero back in 2000. I'm on my 4th engine swap. It's just hard to keep in it with the kids. They love it. I'll probably drive it daily for a while come spring. I would love to make it to a few events this year. I guess I fit in the 3, 4, 5 area.

I am not on the list.

I have owned my car going on 32 years. In those years I go in cycles were some years I am all in and then I take a year it two off. I will drive the car and hit a couple shows in the down years. But in the up years I do more driving for fun and Cruize ins.

I get other toys that come and go but the Fiero remains as it was my first new car, Also I have been to and through a lot with the car. It is my own creation in mods and has gotten me in to do things I never thought I would ever get to do. I have been invited to display the car for GM and Summi Racing. I have drive at tracks I never thought I woul ever drive on.

So the list here is not really going to follow this path As I have my own cycle.

I got my 88 GT in 88 and while it still went out occasionally, I was really at 'been there done that' for several years as had kids and other interests. Now that my kids can drive and they have developed the Fiero interest, we have expanded to three fieros and spend more time figuring out what we are going to do next, back to interest, driving them and improving them. My wife has never complained as I had my car before her, but when she wants to buy something I'm not interested in, I get the old How much do you spend on those cars treatment

I would be in between the 2-3. I bought my 86 GT last October as my daily for high school and back and it gets the girls hahaha. But, I love working on it and I going to go to the Northwest Fiero Fest this summer.

4. Aim to maintain in stock condition or at least use Fiero components.

Still driving the '84 SE 4 speed I ordered (before 4 kids) in Sep'83 that took until May'84 to arrive. (Other vehicles used for family transportation.)
Might be on the short list of the longest single owner continuously registered and driven Fieros.

Bought a 3200 mile Formula 5 speed in 2008 (post-wife); it's an evening, weekend, car show, fair weather car.

Bought a very solid '86 2.5L 5 speed coupe in 2011 that needed mostly cosmetic TLC and swapped in a'87 Duke after a couple of years.
Swaps daily driver duty with the '84.

Anywhere between 3 and 6 depending on what day of the week it is, or the phase of the moon..

Still ordering parts, still looking for a Formula just in case the one in April does not pan out.....
I truly believe I will never be a serious 7 until I can no longer get in or out of one.

At a 3. I Love my GT. I want to keep it and maintain it, and drive it in the warm months. The only thing that makes my interest wane is finding a good mechanic to work on it. I have 2 Nissans and I drive them more, because with the Fiero it is always a major issue for a minor problem. Overpriced service is a huge issue. My other cars that I bought new are so much easier to keep maintained. There is no substitute for knowing where they have been. And my GT is a very good car!! I can't imagine if it had real problems! But I am hanging in there!!!!

I just got another Fiero last year after a few years without. I'm at about 3, heavily collecting parts and tools for a major build. I'm expecting to start it in the next few weeks but I might post the thread on another forum like GRM. This form was much more active 6 or 7 years ago with lots of projects going on. Now it's a ghost town and the few posts aren't usually more than a quick 3 response thread.

I understand I'd be part of the exodus but I don't know that I want to bother posting in multiple spots and I know that GRM welcomes ambitious and unusual builds and has a huge knowledge base.

I would say I'm in the 3 - 5 range. Stage 3: Attend events, always buying parts and always doing something different to my 86GT. Stage 4: Maintaining, but like most never really satisfied. There is some things more to do. Stage 5: Not really sure if I have done that or been there yet. There is always tomorrow.

You could always post it on the forty various scattered Facebook groups which took away all the traffic.

Yeah, I keep hoping to get out of the burned out stage but literally every time I touch the car I sucks money out of my pockets. They have nearly bankrupted me and I have to purposely ignore them.

Maybe after my son is out of college and I have more disposable income the love will come back.

I have been lucky as with low miles and being a original owner it keep cost low.

This is why I always tell people buy the lowest mile cars they can. I see too many buy high mile cars cheap and nickel and dine themselves to more than the price of the lower mile car.

This goes for any car not just Fieros.

My cost are mostly gas and insurance since I went to historic plates. I has to buy tires about two years ago as my Comp TAs were older than the car. I got them for free from BFG after they used them for advertising and they sat in storage for a while. They were in good shape with no cracks but they were getting hard.

Well I mostly exaggerate, most of my expense is because I get carried away.

Both my first two Fieros were relatively low miles (around 50,000) and provided years of relatively trouble free daily driving. But then the modification bug hit and then the I need 3 or more Fieros bug hit. And I need a t-top Fiero bug hit. And then the I need a V8 Chop top bug hit and before you know it I dumped tens of thousands of dollars into my Fieros, which I will never see again. And to make matters worse now none of them run, and for the most part it's simple or easy to fix things, but I know as soon as I get them running I'm gong to want a brake upgrade or new wheels or new Mr Mike's seats covers. I am my own worst enemy.

I believe at this time I'm ready to move on
Once it warms up and I find a new place to live I'm gonna sell the car on Craigslist
