Two weekends ago I went for a stroll in the mountains in Northern Colorado, took this along HW 14 East of Walden. The roads were empty and it was a GREAT time. Also, its my new favorite picture!

Drove so long with the T-tops off I ended up with a sunburn..

I'll leave this with a question. What is the best road you have driven in your Fiero? Got pictures?

For everybody in the south-east US, it's the "Tail of the Dragon", US-129 at Deal's Gap (NC/TN).

Lots of good roads in the mountains of Virginia, from about Charlottesville on out, especially in the Warm Springs area by the Homestead resort.

But don't go south to Covington. Big paper mill there, lots of stink.

Speaking of Charlottesville, stopped at this little winery run by a kindly old gent -

One of my favorite roads was 89A between Prescott and Flagstaff AZ. Unfortunately, I was driving a Buick rent-a-sled when I was there.

This was my video from the Dragon

Best road I ever drove was 299 from Redding to Weaverville, over the Buckhorn summit; 40x >25 mph (Posted)< turns, BANKED, smooth asphalt, climbing from approx' 1000' to 3200'.......Dive into a turn, pour on the power, then up and over twisting into the next turn.....one after another....Exhilarating!

Sadly, CalTrans heard that I was retiring and planning to move to Weaverville....So they straightened the whole thing out....There are other windy roads that are fun, but I ummmm....I HATE 'em! Yeah, that's it......You listening CalTrans? I hate windy, well-paved roads! Especially with banked turns!

Storm King Mountain Road between West Point NY to Cornwall on Hudson. This road became famous when BMW filmed a commercial on it. I drove it once going north and south, and after going north on it swore I'd never driver it again. The road is carved on a mountainside and closes most of the winter and often during the summer because of rock slides. Going north there is a stone wall about four feet high between you and the Hudson River, about ten thousand feet below.
