It is not a CBJ car. Even though it is the correct kit the new roof kit was fitted to it in about 1998. It has been garage ever since and the t-top seals are like brand new.
Well what happened. A long story
I had just finished mowing my lawn and my back was a little sore. I had my garage open ready to take my daughters Peugeot in to give it a service. I had it parked across the road while doing the lawn.
As I came up the start of my driveway I had a sever muscle spasm pain shoot down my right side from the back pain that made my right foot shoot out straight, flooring the car and going into the Pontiac in the garage at about 35kmh.
The Fiero was on floor wheel trolleys so it was basically a big roller skate. When I hit it, it shot backwards taking out all my heavy duty metal shelving behind it and it pushed the brick wall between the garage and family room at an angle which shook the rafters.
Result of the carnage:
Peugeot totalled due to severe front damage and a cracked sump, and various other engine damage.
Me trapped in Peugeot with back and neck injuries. Had 3 fire brigades, 2 ambulances and a police car there. The fire brigade rescue guys disassembled the Peugeot to get me out.
Fiero had damage from the front hit, rear hit and from parts stored in the rafters raining down on it.
After the dust settled it was a $30,000+ experience.
Front reinforcing bar
Rear reinforcing bar
Exhaust system is bent
Rear clip is cracked in a few places and has a chunk missing from it
Every panel copped paint damage from debris
Both rear tail lights are smashed
Windshield broken by a torque convertor landing on it.
Right hand t-top glass broken by debris as well.
Right hand fastback window scratched from debris.
Right hand beechwood leather seat torn in a few places
Due to parts availability in Australia it was easier to total it than repair it.
It could make a good base for a kit car or great parts car for an 88 owner or someone wanting to convert to 88 suspension.
The interior pics look bad because the interior was out of the car.
So now I have a worse back than I had before it is time to get out of Fieros and get a car I can get into easier. Have my eye on a few contenders including a 2nd gen Trans Am, a 2nd gen Camaro and one I have found really cheap is a 2001 Cadillac STS. Thinking of buying it as a daily and doing something I have always wanted to do and build a hot rod.
I am up in the air at the moment as to what to do.
