I drive a van every day, on the weekend when I get on my Fiero I always find a place to let it loose. Of course, with caution.

No it doesn't.

Factory shifters are an Italian Sports Car / Big Daddy Roth kind of thing.

I enjoy a long shifter and a Muncie 4 speed.

Engine buzzing, Heel and toe down shifting.
Pure music to the ears.

And screws for the center console, and a trunk release/defrost switch panel piece.

And a can of flat black spray paint. :P

Give me a break guys! Lol! I don't even have the window switches, I have jumper wires instead, yanked my AC out, only one window works, the carpet looks disgusting, the seats are torn and all the weather seal are dry and cracked. Look at what is replacing the radio, two flip switches and a push start button; don't even have an ignition key.The interior doesn't bother me because it will all come out. In the winter my Fiero will be on Weight Watchers. I upgraded the things that really matters to me; brakes, suspension and drive train. I'd take a trashy interior over a bad drive train or a worn out suspension any time. I'm into Go, not Show. Now, the windshield I will replace because it just going to get worse. Started as a little pebble mark and has escalated to that long crack.

truly great to see someone who enjoys their car behind the wheel having a blast. It is what owning these cars is all about. Some people here forget that obviously...

Made me want to go drive mine watching you hit the roads.

Definitely! I was also testing my home made camera mount because I want to record some in car shots at the track.

Build your own! It's fairly easy if you have a welder!

Makes going through the gears a lot more fun, quick and crisp.

Add some length to the bottom below the pivot and above the cable pin - then cut the shaft out of the u shaped top, cut it down so that the threads are intact and reweld it in the u shaped mount:


Works great for the 5 spd:


Even better for the 4 spd. Really makes a difference in my V8 Coupe:



Not trying to rag on you - I love driving my Fiero and pushing it and / or my skills. Just saying that you should fasten down those loose interior pieces - you don't want stuff flying around and getting "stuck" in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Post up a pic of your camera mount please!

You are right katatak! Loose items are some of the things they check at the track. They even make you take the carpets out and empty the glove box, but like I said, all that is coming out. The short shifter looks great, got one for sale? I would buy one but won't make one even though I weld and have my own welder. I'm fine with my tractor shifter, but if I get an opportunity to buy one like yours I'll buy it.

Rodney's is a much better choice.... I'm a Fiero owner so I'm cheap and make everything I can myself! I would not sell one I built - I'd worry about someone having trouble with it.

Now how'd you mount that camera..........lol!

Took a couple of pictures on my phone of the camera mounted. I'll send it to someone so he can post them. Please don't try to tell me how to do it myself because since I've been in this forum I've been trying to post things and hasn't work, very frustrating when you have to rely on others to post something. I've been in other forums and it has been very easy to post.

As you guys can see, I don't care about interiors. As long as they scream when I ask them to and turn where I point them to, I'm fine.

That's Run For The Hills, an annual event of the Georgia Fiero Club. The car is being driven by Fierofool, president of the club, and we're all trying to keep up.

So, you have to be a Georgia Fiero Club member to attend, right? Can you invite a clubless Fiero owner?
