That's not going to help the Fiero's reputation. I'm not sure how someone would actually live in one though.
Monroe County Court in August 2012 sided with the township and ordered Newell to vacate and never again occupy or use the property unless he had the permits to do so. The report said Newell had been living out of a car, a 1984 Pontiac Fiero, and in abandoned buildings since being ordered to vacate.
RIP to the victims and my condolences to the families

Anyone else look at him and think Santa Cause...... Or at least he could have Played Santa Clause.
I can see he was a Die Hard Fiero nut, he lost everything, and still did not sell his Fiero, take his Fiero to a pawn shop.........

This story may have a bit more to it then it seemed at first. The town condemned his property and had a sheriffs sale. The town then bought the property at the sale. Seems strange that when in a time that most towns are cutting budgets, this town had the money not only to buy the property, but have to pay to clean it up as they now own condemned property. The day of the shooting, his father warned the chief of police that he thought his son planned some thing bad, and owned weapons, but didn't know what he planned. The police did nothing because the chief said the warning was not specific. Never occurred to him that as the town had condemned his property and and then bought it up that the guy might do something at the town meeting that night.
It seems a shame that with these red flags, nothing was done to try to protect those people.
No one owns property in this country anymore. If you think you do, try not paying your taxes or missing a mortgage payment. No matter how much of a slob he is, I don't think it was right for the county to evict him like that. Legal? probably. Right? no. I understand the county's point of view trying to protect the local environment. I think they would've gotten further if they had offered assistance instead of a notice. But, it also wasn't right for him to respond in the way he did. Anyway, back to the Fiero. It is possible live out of one. My nearly 6' tall buddy managed to live out of mine for a week while he borrowed it for a road trip from Ohio to California.
