My girlfriend and I are right now. We packed 4 days of clothes, lots of alcohol(..lots), and a 32 inch LCD TV in the back of my Formula and drove it about 80 miles south to her beach house and the party begins today. She's cleaning up right now because it's the first of the year she's been here and told me to go occupy myself, lol. So here I default to PFF, does that make me a junky?

So tell us about your Fiero vacation stories!

Katatak, myself, and our spouses just returned from the AAFO meet in San Antonio. 1450 mile round trip in 4 days in our Fieros. I took 3 VAC days from work, so I guess that counts.

Now that's a trip, lol. My car is having issues right now so this as far as I'll take her, lol. On my way down I passed a lot of neat and unique cars, a VERY nice studebaker coupe(dunno what exactly, said "grand-something" on the side", an old milk truck(We're the '50s tru cks), and a sweeeeeeeet Mustang Shelby GT350.

A couple of years back we spent a week making a trip around Lake Michigan. We started in the Holland Mi area and went south around Chicago and up into Wisconsin. North to the UP and back home to Lansing. We stopped at as many lighthouses as we could get to. It's surprising how much you can pack when you think ahead what you really need.

No stories just a little advice when far from home in a Fiero:

1) Never, ever put chocolate bars in your suitcase in the trunk
unless you want to be called "Hershey Squirts".
2) You're better off in a tent than trying to sleep in a Fiero.
3) Start looking for gas at no less than 1/3 tank.
4) Pack every nook and cranny you can. (you'll need it)
5) Thou shalt always carry a spare module in thy Fiero.
6) AAA, credit card and your cell are a MUST!

Hmmm... I came up with 1507 miles! Your speedo must be off! Or is it my speedo that is off? Crap - now I have to go work on the Formula. I will add that it was a great trip - 4 days straight in the Fiero was a blast. Averaged 28.7 MPG - not bad considering that the majority was @ 80 plus with the AC on. I did see 32.3 mpg at one time. I think that was when I was following Revin in his Fiero!

The weekend before - we went on a one day vacation in the mountains of S. New Mexico. About 275 miles chasing a bunch of Corvettes - I did not do so well on my MPG that day!

When I was living in upstate NY, I'd drive to Daytona for the spring show. I'd drive to Wisconsin for the Dells, Carlisle for the Kit Car show. I'd drive Maine to visit friends. Now that I'm in Florida, I've done the same trips. Be careful what goes into the trunk.

You've done this a time or two, haven't you?

Our Fieros ran flawlessly the whole trip. But had we not packed half the garage full of tools, they wouldn't have.

How about how many times have you vacationed in your Fiero?

South Dakota (Webster)
Wisconsin Dells
Minneapolis
Pontiac Michigan (25th)

and these are just the trips I took

My sister has taken several
My Mom took one
My in-laws took one to Nashville

These were all taken in the same 1985 Sport Coupe which I am still driving today 21 years after I bought it.

Year before last, I took the Fiero on a nice, long road trip (about 7500 miles). Luckily, I brought a basic tool kit. Because I did have some mechanical problems (radiator popped in Yellowstone, and radiator fan died in Colorado). Anyway, here are a few photos of the Fiero on vacation.

At a rest stop in west Texas (heading west on I-10):



Looking down at the Fiero from a high dune at White Sands:



The campground at the Grand Canyon:



And last but not least, the Fiero admiring the Grand Tetons:

My wife and I go camping for 2-3 days at a time about a dozen times each summer. That amount of time allows the Fiero to be packed snugly, but not over-doing it. I must admit though, not many people want to go where we do... it is a "Dry Camp" and is a bit... hmm... exposed.

Funny part is he never left the state and was still about 300 miles short of making it to the other end...

In 2008 I drove from Houston to Detroit, Canada and New York with me and my son. We made it no issues over 3600 miles.

Texas is one BIG friggen' state. I'm closer to Los Angeles than to Houston.

One of these days when I finally decide to quit working, I'd love to do a summer long Fiero tour of the entire country. Something tells me we will be doing laundry quite frequently.

One time when I was pretty young, me, my dad, and my two brothers got a whole weekend's worth of camping gear (tents, sleeping bags, food, clothes, etc.) into my dad's old Fiero. Not to mention all four of us. I don't know that this is a stunt that could ever be repeated.

My Dad and I drove from Portland, Oregon to Pontiac, Michigan for the 25th Show. Then around town for the weekend, and took the southern route through Indy to catch the NASCAR race before heading home. The trip was probably close to 5500 miles total. His car hit 250,000 miles about half an hour from home. Two weeks mostly spent inside a Fiero with your Dad may not sound like fun to most people, but I had the time of my life. We played real-life Tetris getting all our stuff in and out of the trunk at every hotel.

The wife and I took the SBC fiero on our honeymoon back in 2005 from IL to WI to FL and back to IL on a 2 week trip. Since that time I have taken it solo on several other 500+ mile trips and long hauled the Power Tour a couple of times.

Helps to have a fiero trailer for all the stuff!

I've been with her for 6 months now. :P I dunno, she must be weird if she likes me eh? And this weekend also serves as a test for the Formula, I think it might be able to make the trip to Carlisle. We'll see.

yup. gone camping in the Fiero many times.
the tent & foldy chairs & sleepy bags get bungeed on to the back deck.
the trunk gets filled with solid stuff, and the front get stuffed with soft stuff which squeezes around the spare tire easily.
and a small cooler & munchies in the passenger footwell, since the wifey is tiny

later - for a full week camping in Shenendoah Nat'l Park, actually went and strapped on a cargo bubble
what a treat that was blasting down the Ohio & Penn turnpikes with a little Fiero w/cargo bubble on top. yes, CG was a bit off.....

The bubble would be great.....I just can't imagine what it would do to aerodynamics at 85-90 mph on I-10 between El Paso and Kerrville as I'm trying to stay up with Katatak.

Yes, my wife still reminds me of the first vacation night that we wound up spending sleeping in the car up on the Olympic Peninsula - couldn't find a room anywhere. She had thought we should leave a day early, as it was our anniversary that day - neither of us knew there was a Jazz Festival going on, and every room was taken.

A little OT, but in reply to Spynx:

I grew up in England, and when the family Standard died, an old Royal Enfield 500 became the new "Car". We took it on vacation for two weeks - Dad on the front, me in the back, Mom in the front of the sidecar, my two sisters in the back of the sidecar, - and Mum was quite pregnant with my little sister. Plus clothes for the five of us for two weeks tied on pretty well everywhere. We did get a stare or two when we unloaded.

I've gone on several trips in my Silver 85 Fiero - I drove it daily to school and work, plus many frequent trips to chicago to visit family. Took it to Georgia, several places in Michigan and ohio....drove it all over! Duke had its fair share of highway miles thats for sure....

I've vacationed in my Fieros on many occasions. IL, FL, OK, TN,GA, TX, and CA; it doesn't make any difference--I've driven them and packed all of the items in the trunk.



In GA rest stop. Sleept in the car.


NM traveling to IL.


In Largo FL.


NV, nearing Las Vagas baby!

Last October, we took the Fiero across the state, up the Outer Banks. We saw one of the aquariums and the maritime museum, then enjoyed a long ferry ride with a dolphin escort. We flew kites at Kitty Hawk, then got a look at the Hatteras lighthouse and watched surfers braving the cold, rough surf at the cape. Perhaps I can convince CowsPatoot to provide a few more pics.

Not yet. But with any luck, very soon, my wife and I will be traveling to New Jersey, by plane, and driving the 87 back from the Haus. Several stops planned along the way and looking for more.

Last summer, I drove the GT from Chicago to Toronto for Caribana (the West Indian Festival.) Since I went alone, I had room for my stuff and the obligatory spares/tools/etc. If my lady had wanted to go, there's no way I could've taken the Fiero. Her shoes ALONE would've taken up all the trunk space! Other than my ignition module taking a dump in Windsor, Ontario (just over the US/Canada border from Detroit) I didn't have any problems. I, of course, carry a couple of spare modules in my tool case!

It seems my car never craps out during a weekday or within any given city limits so dying in Windsor was a first!

I drove it to Florida for Daytona this year and stayed for an additional two weeks. That was about 1500 miles on the car for this trip so that may count as a "vacation".

Helps to have a fiero trailer for all the stuff!




I LOVE the trailer!

I would love to vacation in the fiero, but this is impossible for three reasons:

1 - the car isn't running at the moment
reasons 2 and 3 are my two golden retrievers that travel with the wife and me when we go on vacation anywhere, and the fiero doesn't offer the amount of room necessary for traveling with two dogs plus a spouse I just can't stand the thought of boarding my dogs. I have friends that would love to take care of them for a few days, but I try to go places that I can take the dogs with me.

I don't think i could handle going anywhere too far. It is hard enough driving in traffic for 30 min in a manual if in a jam i couldn't keep up the clutch action very long.

Reading everyones posts really makes me miss having my Fiero (s). Back in '00 I was living in SC, I drove my turbo-charged '86SE to a show in Williamsburg VA. Had a great time and took 3rd place (out of three cars in Modified Notchback lol). After the show I continued north to Maryland and stayed with the fam for the day. Then we all headed west to Deep Creek Lake to stay at our lake house for a few days. Then I made the whole trip back to SC in one day. Man I loved driving that car. I'm still on the look-out for another one! I'll see if I can post a pic from that trip, or could anyone post it for me?
