My sister gave me my Fiero when she got her '95 Miata, a few months after that some lady smoked the front of her Miata and totled it, then she bought a '94 Jeep cherrokee sport and just the other day she was driveing it at 1 in the morning right after an ice storm and spun it in circles and ran 50MPH right into a light pole, the force knocked the light pole over and totled her Jeep!! I consider my Fiero lucky it survived her!!

Or, you want the caddilac to get smashed from behind in a parking lot with nobody in it and be totaled!
I'm 18 and only have a fiero. I used to have an 83 Dodge Ram slant 6, 225, rwd.(It wanted a 1970 440 V8 really bad but instead I used the money to buy an EXP. And it was a 1987 Ford Exp, (Escort Roadster type thing). I sold the EXP and bought a 1988 Fiero Formula. And I have been living happily ever after since then.
I've almost purchased two other fieros since then. A 1986 SE V6, and a 1987 GT. But decided not to for insurance purposes.
well I would post a pic of my other car but it has so many rust holes it's hard to see. It's a 88' plymouth Reliant with 256k miles and very light in the shorts (yes it's a piece of sh** but that's a good thing, I can park it where I want, drive it where I want and never worry about it.) It only gets driven when it rains or snows saving a lot of wear and tear on my both my Fiero's.

Well, my current running vehicles are: 90 Honda Civic-the conservative economy car 79 3/4 ton Suburban-the hot rod grocery getter, Holley Projection 900 and a 454. 85 Fiero SE- The DuckMobile 88 Fiero GT- Latest project, will eventually have a nice 3.1 with a few goodies. 95 Mercury Mystique- the wife's car, stop laughing!
My other car is a Mountain bike! and, believe it or not, if I sold it I could buy a pretty nice Fiero... expensive stuff. here's what I got: Independent Fabrications Deluxe frame Girvin Crosslink Elite front fork XTR Brake/shift levers, XTR R. Derrailur, XTR r. hub, Nuke Proof f. hub, Avid Arch Supreme brakes f/r, Syncros Forged crankset, Syncros Al seatpost, White Bros Ti handlebar.. I love it, though. gotta start racing more..
Well, last august I parked a 1984 Buick Lesabre and bought a 96 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The 5.0L Buick still runs but has little power and drinks the gas. Its been a good car, never left anyone in my family on the side of the road. When I get some money, I may have some fun with it. Its just dying for a fresh 350......

Cooter... Not gonna laugh about the Mystique. Some friends of ours have a Contour. Not a bad car, at all. I actually (speaking heresy, here) kind of lust after an SVT Contour. If and when we decide we need a 4-door.

I have a 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 with a turbo diesel, my wife drives a Nissan Sentra, and my youngest daughter drives a Dodge Neon. I got my Fiero to keep from piling the miles up too fast on the truck which has about 95K on it now. We're going to use the truck to pull a trailer around the USA when we retire. But now that I've had the Fiero for about 1/2 year, I'm trying to think of ways to take it with me. That car's almost got a personality, and I'm hooked on it. If you ever saw the movie "Christine", it's like a good Christine.

My other ways of getting around are a 1992 Nissn Maxima (daily driver), 1966 Porsche 911 (my other toy), and of course my 84 SE. I am also building an airplane (Vans Aircraft RV-6 2 seat all aluminum), and am thinking of looking for an 88 GT in the next couple of months. I'll probably sell the 84 after I get the GT.
