For a small city of 80,000 people, there must be at least 10 or 12 running, daily drivers, around here.
When my car broke the clutch arm, in late April, the AAA tow truck driver, told me he has two buddies, with hopped up Fiero's. Both are kind in the "Trying to get Civilized" mode.
One with a V-8, apparently cracked the roof plastic, during a test run, and the other one does wheelies, and drags the exaust pipes on the pavement.
Mine, as well as 4 or 5 others, are in really good shape for their age, and the owners, all take great pride in maintaining and driving these cars.
There is one black colored 85 GT sitting in a front yard, acting as a lawn ornament, with the headlights stuck up, paint looks alright, but hasn't been driven for a while.
Lethbridge is known for something called the "Street Wheelers Weekend". Happens on the second weekend in July. We have a 100 foot dash, in front of the Exibition Grandstand, and apparently a 3.8 Supercharged Fiero, won it last year (2007)
That ought to raise the Canadian tally by a bunch. Plus there are big Fiero Clubs in both Edmonton, and Calgary.
At least two of us are on the forum, from Lethbridge.
Bridgetown, and myself.

This is a friend's car. With our winter project. (The hinges) He just signed up on the forum hopefully he will chime in.
Ive had 5. Only have my 88GT 3.4 right now. I am in eureka CA and I see fieros all the time. Up in the mountains I see them on the side of the road and in the two small junkyards that are there. I would say I have seen probably 15 to 20 different fieros in the area over the last few years. Eureka is a small northern town with mainly poor and middle class making the fiero is a popular car in this area.
