Car needs some love and I'm currently working on fixing up the interior and getting a few little things going that don't work. I am impressed with the amount of interest this car attracts, very rare around here

Saw that for sale on Kijiji. You're the new owner I imagine? That thing was selling for a pretty penny. VERY nice though. However, I almost think it would've looked better with stock taillights tinted dark black.
But anyways, I'm kinda jealous. P.S. A buddy of mine is moving to Moose Jaw soon. I hope you drive it around lots so he can grab a look at the car. (He's not a Fiero guy, but he'll likely talk to me about it.)

I haven't even got around to taking the wheels off yet but going by memory...38 maybe? No significant rubbing issues but our roads are so bad its hard to say, something was banging on the bumps
I will be going through whole car shortly so I should have that info for you. Brakes are nissan 4 piston calipers that are on higher end models and i have no idea what he used on the back.
Funny story with the brakes, when i first looked at them all I saw was SS on the calipers. I was thinking they were SSBC calipers or some special brand only for Fieros.... My buddy who is into JDM cars takes one look and say those are Nissan calipers...the guy just ground off the NI and AN! I plan on grinding off the SS and add a fiero decal instead since he told me that!
If you want to find out how quick it is Saskatchewan International Raceway in Saskatoon has Street Legal racing night every second friday, and 2 sunday dates coming up. You can check the dates on their website http://www.racesir.com
I would phone up the guy you bought the car from and get a list off all the non-fiero parts and their application so if something brakes you know what you are looking for.
I take it you have a dealers license? I was going to use one from work but they said that it would only keep the cops off of me, it would not insure the car cause it wasn't owned by the dealership.

First off beautiful car! Second, what size tire do you have on there? I ran 265s for awhile and they looked good, but not that good, they were also on 18s, no I have 19s in the back and miss my 265s...
Is the car running coil overs? and can we get pictures of the engine bay, interior, and more around the car?

dumb question.... how do you post a pic? I just bought my first one too and would like to throw a pic up. Thanks guys. Great Fiero by the way, I was looking at that one too. Not anywhere near my neighborhood, but I always keep an eye out for what's being sold.
