What coincidence! That's exactly the reason why I lowered mine!

doesn't the trail get lower when it gets hooked up to a truck?

I know jackie chan did some movie where he drives a fiero with a lambo kit underneath a truck only with the doors being ripped off because he had them up

Not always. Sometimes the trailer gets raised when hooked up.

I wasn't thinking sunroof, tgowens. More like convertible. Cheap way to get that wind in your face feel if you don't mind a few ragged edges.

Actually Lenny, thats not my car(wish it was though!!) It was origonally posted on another site. It's hard to tell by the picture but there couldn't be more than 2-3" clearance. Having a car this low could make for some interesting freeway maneuvers.

Actually, judging by the space between the tires and the wheel-housing, my Fiero is probably a little bit lower.

God I cant imagine lowering my fiero that much. The ride is harsh enough, then again, I was used to a Buick before I got my current Fiero.

Hey guys, my brother and I once had a Fiat (Bertoni) X19 that could do that, it was probably even lower. I'd sometimes get the crazy urge to try that --- while in motion, whenever I'd be driving next to a big rig. Sometimes those truckers wouldn't see me which led to some exciting moments. Thankfully I never did have to perform a real life test of whether we could do it.

And those wooden arm gates, the ones that raise up to let you out, well we could sometimes go right under them. Other times my brother or I would have to walk up to it and lift it an inch or two, but it was pretty cool. Damn did that car handle, plus the feel of the shifter was awesome!!!

dman--Bertone, not Bertoni. (Sorry. I'm a picky bastard.) He was the designer. I had 2 Fiats in my life. A 124 Spyder and an X19. Loved the targa top on the X19 better than the ragtop on the 124. When I bought my X19, someone had swapped the original springs for something out of a Blazer, I think. That thing was ready to 4 wheel! I got a set of aftermarket springs and had them installed. Dropped it about 3" from stock. Rode like a brick, but looked pretty cool, IMHO. Got any pics of yours??

Hey monkeyman. Sorry, no pics. That was in '83 or so I think. Back then I'd still see a whole bunch of them around. It wasn't too hard to see old Fiats, MGBs, Triumphs, Alfas and Opel GTs here and there. Now all of those cars are pretty darn scarce!

Monkey,
Me and my father are going to be restoring his Pasatano Yellow '69 Fiat Spyder 124 this year. Man, it was like a 60's Fiero; WAY ahead of it's time.
