Ok just started driving my New to me Fiero this week and I noticed a severe lack of cup holders. In fact there are none. So what do all you fellow Fiero owners do for cup holders??

Those definitely look like a great choice!
Another option if you wanted to fab your own, I made some in the center console between the radio and shifter. It worked out well and no one suspects its not stock (at least those who don't own a Fiero hehe). I sourced rubber inserts from some Toyota at the junk yard (no idea what it was anymore) and used tin cans cut to size as the actual structure, cut out holes in the hvac console cover and glued the tin in. Then put the rubber inserts in and bam. Oh, also had to cut some of the plastic underneath to get more depth.

Done two of these. Bought at NAPA. Used mostly on boats, obviously. Easy to install, one screw. If you remove it, no one will ever know it had been installed. Works well. Lazy man method for a cup holder.

You buried the lead on this one. The double DIN and relocated HVAC is awesome!

You beat me to it.... after owning Fieros for 17 years I just discovered that one this summer. Partly due to the "no drinks" rule I had in my current one for the last 10 years

There is the quick and easy Corvette cup holders. I have one in my chop that works great. Had to trim the bottom to get it to fit but there is ZERO mods needed to the Fiero and it can be removed in seconds.

Just google C6 corvette cup holder.. there are a ton with finish and price all over the range.

I like that Corvete C6 cup holder. Its nice but $50 for a plastic cup holder is a bit steep. Cut off a 1 qt plastic drink bottle about 1/2 way. Wedge it between the speedometer console and the dash. There's your coffee cup holder at zero cost and if you go to a show just pull it out and put it aside. Actually I like Mike goods cup holder. It is more expensive but its a substantial upgrade and it does give you an upholstered original look.

I've never understood the need for people to eat and drink in their vehicles.

I don't like dry mouth, so water in a bottle is great.. long rides, short rides.. not waiting 30-60 miles for a rest area, and pulling over on the side gets a cop asking why, well sir I wanted a drink, officer, ya sure bud you pulled over to drink some water.. lic and reg please..

I did the TXgood cupholder, but before I bought that I had been investigating using one from a BMW. Well, I bought an SSR, and needed a cupholder, so I used the BMW one. Still think it has potential for the Fiero. It is removable - just pull it up. A little spring loaded cover (part of the bracket) automatically pops into place to cover the small hole.

Ever gone on a 500 mile trip to a Fiero event? Drinks are handy.
