Luckily mine didn't break down on the first date, or the second for that matter. On the third however the f%@#ker wouldn't start when we were leaving the restaurant. I gave her a quick crash course in driving stick, thankfully shes a fast learner, and we were able to bump start it. Turns out the starter gear wasn't kicking out.

that really sucks PK, but it sounds like she still had a good time.. Try not to get too embarrassed.. Reminds me of one time an old friend from out of town came by to check out my fiero (before i finished it) and he was a former fiero guy.. Asked me if my headlights still rose, cause his never did on his old fiero.. I was like.. "hell yeah they work, check it out.) popped them up once, no probs, brought them down, then when to pop them up again, and the damn driver side on died right there.. lol.. pissed me off.. My friend just started laughing..
We have all been there bro..

Look on the bright side. It wasn't raining. The Fiero knows not to break down during the rain Maybe you will get another date with her by getting the sympathy vote. Post a picture of her here, have all us chime in on what a great guy you are and have her read the posts. Only masculine guys (or the opposite for the female Fiero owners) for driving Fiero's in the first place.

Back in 1991 or so, after a night out dinning and a local club--I was on my way leaving her house and the module from my 2.8 decided it didn't want to leave--so it was a good excuse to spend the night (but her daddy didn't like that). The next morning I walked about 1-block to some type of auto store a picked up a module for $35 or so. I had tools and was on my way in 15-minutes or so.
