Not really my style, but somebody put a TON of money into this:
I Bought An Abandoned Magazine Featured Lowrider With Hydraulics For $1,000! Will It Run Or Bounce!
from LegitStreetCars


Is it just me or do there seem to be a lot more Fiero's on various YouTube channels?

It's amazing how sun-faded the interior is. Hopefully we'll see more of it.

Part of the fun of watching some of the Fieros being fixed on youtube is watching these guys struggle with problems that have been well documented here over the years and practically yelling the solution at the screen, "NO what are you doing?! The fuel pump is in the tank!"

Funny how Bondo was the state of the art "fix-all" back in the 80's. It was a filler, adhesive, parts maker, etc.

Unfortunately they really don't seem to serious about restoring the car, and seem more interested in getting the car to bounce. Quite frankly, I feel that whenever these top YouTubers feature a Fiero, its more a joke than anything else. Like the guy that entered the Enzo Fiero in the exclusive concours show, or when Tavarish picked up a Fiero Countach replica. None of them actually appreciate the cars. Its a shame. If they were actually going to restore the car to its original glory, I'd be very interested, but from this video I can already tell its not going in that direction.

Yeah that's just sad. They are obviously not Fiero guys.

The name of the game in YouTube is content. Content sells ad revenue... and YouTubers sure love reinforcing the red-headed stepchild reputations of the Fiero - between exaggerated fires and bad replica cars - because they make for quick and easy consumption to the average short attention-span YouTube viewer.

Unfortunately that's also what's picked-up by the other car subcultures... outside our bubble, I've found respect for our cars (at least in stock form) remains pretty sporadic.

I had forgotten about that one. Did he ever do anything with that car?

WatchJRgo was another one that had a Fiero but I don't think he ever did anything with it. I watched his videos for months afterward but almost all of his cars he just flipped. Didn't expect to see him in this new one though.

^^^^^^^ This. The more absurd the content is, the higher the view count will likely be. This one was interesting not because of what they are doing with it, but what the original owner did with it. Not something I would do, but they certainly spent a ton of money on it and it doesn't look like it held up well over time. Sun faded cloth, flaking paint, and no clue how so much dirt entered the engine bay (flood?) If nothing else, we can hope that the increased awareness that our little cars exist will spark legitimate interest with the younger crowd. People are finding the cars "interesting", just not always for the reasons we would hope for.

Also, if the people who are creating the videos detailing Fiero restoration are reading this, bravo! Keep'm coming!

Interesting that is has the PK86-style smoothed roof where they filled the gap between the main roof section and the rear clip (or whatever it is called).

Holy ***k, up to $10k, and it doesn't bounce (but that's probably a good thing!)
------------------
Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!
