I'd seen that car at numerous Fiero events down in Washington State over the years. It was very nice. What a shame.

A T-top Fiero may have fared less well in that situation.

Many other mods and "repairs" can have bad results too.
That uses most to all crush zone for the back.
Likely done more then lock the hood on anti-guillotine bolts in front because even front wheels looked push back to the firewall like some of the Fiero crash test videos on YT.

Drop Tops and convertible even when up are often weak for any load on top too.
But Car on top likely has most of weigh on the front of the Fiero.

Think is pictures here showing this Fiero.

The current owner is going to buy the molds. He will move the parts that are usable to an 88 Fiero. I hope to find the paint code for him but I don't know where it is. The auto paint store no longer has the code. Here are some fairly recent photos I took in Astoria OR.

Oh man. Pictures like that really bring home the 'what insurance do you have?' question ...

The passengers are OK and that's the really good news. The loss of such a beautifully done custom Fiero is sad but accidents like this happen when people text while they drive. To lift the car in front that had to be a hard hit.
It doesn't look like that much is salvageable. It would be difficult to build a car like this again. The custom nose and rear fascia are most likely no longer available.

The Fiero was a full stop when hit hard from behind which forced the Fiero under the car in front. Just now the owner purchased the molds and said he wants to re create it on another Fiero frame.

I was going to inquire about the molds in the near future, but glad they went to someone who needs them.
