Well Today i got a chance to drive both my fieros. As all of you know i built my 87 (ACES-HI) and my 86 (GREEN LANTERN) is more or less of a frankenstine car. While driving my 87 it feels like the car is put together and not so much bumb and steer.
The 86 whenever i hit a bump the steering wheel jerks to the side a little and when going staraight the steering wheel feels a little wobeley. Also as we all know all the GT's have intermittent wiperswell in my 86 they dont work they only work with one speed. I beleave the steering colume in my 86 is out of an 84. Thje dead give away is the steering wheel. Heres pics to show you guys.

Heres a pic of the steering wheel in my 86. This is the one that i think is out of an 84


This is the one out of my 87. see the diffrence in steering wheels. Dont look at the GT horn button. There interchangeable.

PK, it seems that most people that know you, would agree with the second part of your thread title. As far as the steering column, you could very well be right. The wipers are different in an 84. You can swap out the wiper switch (not much fun but not impossible).

Life is just SO much better when you own AND drive a Fiero!

The steering wheel that you think is an 84, looks like it was re-wrapped, and whoever did it didn't wrap it very far out on the spokes, and did the closing stitch on the bottom spoke on the wrong side… it should be on the back, not the front.

The '84 had a different wrap style... it looks correct for an '84

The first wheel is the NK-3 wheel offered as an option on all series. The second wheel is the NP-5Leather wraped Formula wheel also an option on all series. These wheel were used in 84-85 modle years acording to Gary Witzenburg's " FIERO "
