Here's my notchie. All original except for the shift knob and boot which was a birthday present from my son. I've owned it since 85, and even though I drool over the awesome modifications I've seen on PFF, I can't bring myself to alter her original beauty!
I thank Cliff for re-opening this thread as it was lost in the archives. I thought it would be great for newer members to check out the cars as well as post their own. Hopefully since 2011 there are a TON of new owners
Thanks again Cliff.

You know I really like the. notchbacks as they can be so much more diverse in looks and still look good.
Just look at the number of nose and spoiler treatments that really turn out looking much different and yet all look good.
Just look at this page alone at the different rear spoilers and how they each have a good effect on the car.
Back in the day I heard the GT fast back was coming. I had seen the PPG fast backs and was excited. But when they arrived they were cool but I never had any urge to trade for one. I remained a notchback guy yet to this day and feel great with my choice in 1985.
When it comes to cars I love originality and well executed styling. Too often and even some Fiero owners are guilty of cloning others.
I built most of my car back in the 80’s and many of the parts have not been available for 35 years. I made my car my own. I see some others here that have done the same. That is cool.

I’ve always been a notchback guy, too. I respect the fastbacks, but I’ve always preferred the notchback look. Somehow it captures the ‘80s vibe better than the fastback and it’s just a cool-looking design.
I appreciate the thought and work that owners put into the their cars, even the wild ones, but I like the subtle ones best. Some Fieros are customized so much they don’t look like Fieros anymore, which to me defeats the purpose.

Kit, aren't you taking somewhat of a chance pulling up that far forward towards a curb to park... especially when you're about to load up the car? Depending on the style of nose (and height of curb), I'd say it's rather risky business for a front air dam! My Fieros appreciate that I try to never overhang a curb like that.
