I've had at least 40 cars/trucks as well as over 20 motorcycles in my life so I won't bore you by listing them all here...

... currently I own the '88 Fiero GT, a '70 Dodge Dart Swinger, an '83 Suzuki Katana and a '17 Suzuki VanVan200. Oh, and an '04 Dodge Dakota 4x4 for a beater.

Tried to link pics but they weren't working.

Beside the Fiero, I currently own a '14 F150. It is my daily driver but I also use it to haul wood, scrap metals and a small trailer sometimes. I just installed pro comp alloy wheels and a leveling kit on it.

My last car is a 2019 Corvette with a 460hp engine. My first 'Vette was a 1956 Corvette that was faster than I realized but I liked it until I totaled it while inebriated. It won't happen again for sure.

Hopefully this will be my last car (I have a low miles Chevy Trailblazer now) and I'll use the Corvette for trips when Coronavirus is no longer a threat.

Have you ever considered painting over some of the headlight lenses to make it more traditional looking? I've seen it before and it didn't suck. Not that I'm as adamant as some people are about disliking that era of fascia, but it does look better with less window.

The fried egg look doesn't bother me. but they do have fiberglass headlight covers I could buy that make them look like a traditional Porsche. you can also get the front end conversion for a reasonable price as well.

I like the look and if you seen the build thread for that Porsche... its quite the little monster I've been featured on two websites and one magazine. i'm currently swapping in a 3.8 which I used this website for with help and hoping to have a 0-60 monster by spring lol

I am a GM man for sure, for cars owned in the past:

1980 Chevy Custom Deluxe C20 3/4 ton LWB (5.7L 350 with 3+LL manual)
1989 Chevy Caprice (4.3L TBI)
1993 Pontiac Sunbird LE (4Dr Sedan, 2.0L Auto)
2007 Buick Excel (4Dr Sedan, 1.5L Auto) - Owned/Driven in China
2016 Acura MDX SH-AWD Tech (3.5L 9spAuto) Current DD and family hauler
2002 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am CETA (OEM LS1 with 6sp manual) Restoration in progress (hood graphics in a box)


Side by side, daily and weekend (after transmission is fixed)

In high school my mom got a 1967 VW Karmann Ghia I drove for a few months until the cam shaft fell apart, that car was a nightmare to drive. I beat the Sunbird for many years but it was Wisconsin winters that killed it. I am fixing the neglect and age of the WS6 Trans Am and am replacing the clutch now. While my dream car is a 1978 Trans Am, these are just too antiquated to resto-mod on my budget. I would love to get a 1988 GT manual and put a 3800 or similar V-6 in it. The hardest part is convincing my wife of the space needed to store a 3rd car and work on it.

Wow,

A lot of folks have had cars that I've wanted in the past. I don't have pictures of all my cars, so here's just a chronological list.

Acquired in 1995: 1988 Plymouth Reliant K. Tan exterior, burgundy interior. 4 cylinder, between highway and city driving, it didn't get much better gas mileage than my '94 Town Car!

Acquired in 1997: 1994 Plymouth Voyager minivan.

Acquired in 2001: 1994 Ford Tempo

Acquired in 2002: 1990 Ford Thunderbird

Acquired in 2003: 1994 Lincoln Town Car
- during the time I owned this, is when I got my first Fiero, an 86 GT, from my sisters ex-husband. Came with an Archie swapped 350 (basic kit)

Acquired in 2013: 1995 Cadillac Deville (if I knew then what I knew now, I would have kept that car to part out and kept it's transmission, versus donating it and only getting to write off $500)
- Still had my Fiero and my '94 Town Car

Acquired in 2016: 2003 Town Car
- This year donated both 94 Town car and the DeVille (Deville was in immaculate body/interior shape, but the electronic rear suspension was shot, and the transmission axle seal had worn through because of the suspension issues causing the axle to always been at an odd angle, and it got to where it was leaking transmission fluid like a sieve. I didn't know Mike well enough yet to ask him to fix it, and quotes I was getting was 1500 to 2500 to fix something with 100 in parts and had a KBB value of only around 1k.

Acquired in 2018: 1987 Fiero GT - my current work in progress (check out the Construction zone, start on page... 11 I think? for this build. I probably should have started a new thread. :/ )

Today is the day of TWOS....And it is Tuesday....Coincidence?

My first car was a 1972 Mercury Comet GT....I wasn't really interested until the guy started it up- It had Glass packs.....It was gold with a black stripe that did not really follow the lines....So I first got some wheels and tires, then painted the lower body with flat black- it would have looked like an old man with his paints pulled way up, but I came up with the idea of leaving a gold strip the width of the side markers to improve the look. Owned from 1977 to 1983.



Owned a Mustang II for 1.5 years....Absolute crap- poorly engineered.....They should have made the next 'Stang on the Maverick/Comet chassis. My next car was a>>>>>FIERO!
1985 SE V6 ordered from the factory- delivered on May 22. (You guys know what they look like)

Next, I bought a 1973 Mustang mach 1.....Swapped in a 5.0 FI engine, 4 speed trans, Fiero seats, Cougar dash, Buick Riviera side mirrors, and made an airdam, while blocking off the upper grill- glued that car down really well (If you know 71-73 Mustangs, you know that the back end is great aerodynamically, but the front end is a disaster- Stock, it was floating at 65 with a angled headwind- after the airdam, I had it up to 95 mph passing three semis on H97 near Mt. Shasta- Rock solid! )



Sadly, I had reoccurring problems with the AOD trans and my new job was a long commute, so I then sold it for a 1999 Firebird Formula



Later, I changed to a Ford Escape, then later still a Chevy Uplander van (But I don't wear a mumu nor have any soccer balls!)

The boat is a 1977 Glastron/Carlson CVX-20 Jet; 460 Ford w/400hp- great ski boat and handles like a giant (And fast) Jetski.

Right now, a '21 Lexus IS and a '22 Lexus NX. The new NX just came in a couple weeks ago.

Besides my '88 Fiero GT which was sold long ago, I've had:

  • '98 Chevy Malibu
  • '98 Infiniti QX4
  • '78 Chevy Camaro Z28
  • '91 Geo Metro
  • '05 Nissan Altima
  • '13 Mazda Mazda2


Most vehicles were automatic, but I've had a few manual transmission cars as well. I prefer manual, but you can't get most cars in manual transmission nowadays.

Hi, my name is SKJSS and I have a car addiction.... In my driveway/garage at the moment....'86 Fiero GT, Toyota Prius C, BMW 128i, Porsche 996, Porsche 986. I've got a couple cars on the way to me and will soon be selling the Prius (and maybe the 986).

In my life, I truly don't know how many cars I've had. Best ballpark guess is 125. All kinds of stuff and it's been a blast!!! Like I said, I have an addiction.

I have had a lot of fiero's and Fbody cars over the years...

I currently own the following

1988 Fiero GT, white 5spd
1999 Cadillac Escalade, black
2002 WS6-Trans Am, black auto
2010 Corvette Grand Sport, torch red auto
2014 Cadillac CTS, opulent blue metallic

2 cars I have gotten rid of in the last 3 years that I regret. My 2006 Grand Prix GXP, displacement on demand delete with full tune for 87, 91 and 93 octane...just had to flash with HP tuner and then my 2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport 3.6 twin turbo. I am pretty happy with what I currently have. I might get rid of the CTS and get a CT6 Blackwing if I can get my wife to be ok with it since she drives the CTS the most. I plan on picking a C8 Corvette up here in the next 2-3 years when the madness is mostly over.

Wow! Lots of interesting rides.
An update since this post... https://www.fiero.nl/forum/.../HTML/000442.html#p3

In 2019 I bought a "new body style" Ram 1500.
We moved to a farm, and I needed 4WD. (Heck... I managed to get the stupid Silverado stuck in my back yard in Douglasville. )



I have since lowered/leveled the rear, and added black step bars. Otherwise, not much of anything.

I also bought an 88 coupe for the purpose of doing a swap.




For a brief period, I also owned an 86 SE that had belonged to one of our club members, and a good friend, who passed a few years ago.




I decided to let it go, since I really didn't have the time - or other stuff - to mess with it. (All my spare parts and skills revolve around 88s.)
But at least I didn't take a loss on it.


Other than that, not much, automotively speaking.
I still have a "want list", however.

I'd really like to find a Hyundai Genesis coupe with a 3.8 and a manual trans that hasn't had the snot run out of it. Kind of uncommon, these days. (Gave up on the FRS/BRZ. Too small.)
I'd also like to find a V8 short body Trailblazer or Envoy, to play with. Or maybe a 2007-2014 Tahoe, but they're still going for stupid money.
