Just like the title says, I know many people here collect many things Fiero (example: toys, clothes, nos parts and so on) But does anyone on here collect "any and everything" from magazines that wrote articles on fiero? I know Ron T. has a big collection, but anyone else?????

I used to. Not sure what I have now. (Obviously, "new" Fiero articles are kind of few, and far between.)

Don't forget about me John. I have somewhere in the area of 200 commercially published and private trade magazines that have something Fiero related in them. Plus all of the various club newsletters and club magazines that have been printed over the past 30 years.

I like Fred have at least 200 magazines, new letters and stories dating back to the late 70's.

I also have many books including one I picked up yesterday on the 100 Ann of GM design. It has a photo of the 1990 I had never seen.

I also have several club news magazine collections.

I still have the first magazine I bought on the Fiero knowingly in 1980 when it was referred to as the Lil GTO on the cover.

I only have a few of the magazine articles from 1985-88; BY far the best test of a Fiero after 1985 was the Road & Track Sports & GT car test special edition 1987- Peter Egan tested an 87 GT/5spd and was very positive about the car.

I also have the Fiero Performance Portfolio book, which has quite a few of the old tests on the car....Including the "letters of hate" from C&D....The Peter Egan test, the 1985 MT and R&T tests that were very positive(Why I ordered my car)....And some foreign tests that were usually much more positive than the US magazines....Although some fool hated the car because the parking brake "-created a barrier to getting in and out of the car"....Yes, the IQ of some automotive "Journalists" was questionable....

I knew there was a catch here. Ha Would it be easier if you post what you want in "The Mall' section?

So, a page on T-Top in both of those magazines is what you're looking for. Google Books has a large section of magazines scanned that you can print whatever page you want. Try it there.

Out of curious, are you referring to R&T August 1986 & October 1987?

Yeah, I tried to find some foreign magazines with Fiero tests in English that I could buy, but no luck. Can you name few magazines that I could look up?

Oh yeah, I remember reading about that writer who complained about the parking brake being dangerous of getting in the way of getting in & out of the car. What a damn fool!!! Reminds me of another young writer recently from Road & Track taking a Fiero out for a test drive review thru YouTube, criticized how bad it was. You could tell he already had a bad opinion of the Fiero long before he step into the car. Then, he applauds how great MR2 is long before he took one out for a drive. That’s called stereotype!!! A writer is supposed to block out all opinions & see for him/herself. Ha

Fiero Vice- Sorry I missed your post....The best source by far is the Fiero Performance Portfolio by Brookland books....I think it is still available thru Amazon; It has the Nov 1984 MT test, the Nov 1984 R&T test- both very positive, and at the beginning of the R&T test, they have a small comparison graphic with the 300ZX and RX7 NA(The Fiero matches both of these very well)....The Peter Egan test (Included) was from the 1987 Sports & GT special edition. Any Car & Drival test was very negative...Even tho they put the 84 on their list of "Ten Best cars" in 1984. Any improvement that GM did apparently made the car worse...And they never mentioned the MR2s DTO until 1989(After they had helped kill the Fiero)....
The foreign tests that were positive were Motor (Sept 84), and Modern Motor (Aug 85)...there are more that are relarively positive...The one with the IQ challenged individual who had problems with the handbrake is Sports Car Monthly (Dec 85).

The FPP does not include one that I still own; The April 1988 Car & Drival comparison between the Fiero, MR2 and CRX SI...The Fiero out-performed the other 2 in every way except braking, yet placed third- They compared the CRXs body to Daryl Hannah(!!?).....And the only real faults against the Fiero were the steering was heavy, shifter notchy and the instruments point at your navel....But it was ok that no amount of adjusting could get you close enough to the CRXs steering wheel...
