Not bad. And one of the few articles I've seen that actually mentioned the connecting rod issue.

What people don't think about, is that the Duke (along with its rickety rods) was also used in other cars. I have to assume that at least some of those engines air-mailed the rods through the side of the block, too. The "fatal" difference is that the Fiero had a catalytic converter right there - waiting for the shower of oil and anti-freeze. Celebrities and 6000s had their catalytic converters a couple of feet downstream, where they were largely shielded from the oil bath.

My 84 is still running the original Iron Duke. I'm still waiting for it to catch fire after 31 years.

That's the factory "mediium red metallic". It looks a bit brighter due to the direct sunlight, but yeah.
Probably my favorite Fiero color.
