    No...not a family car.

    But then again, a fun type of birth control. :shock:

    Not sure if allowed to link to other sites or not, but here is a link to a sister site where I posted some pictures of the Fieros.

    Cool Fieros. I had a friend who bought a brand new one in '84. I almost bought a later model silver one used in '92. But it was the typical, looks too good for the price, wonder what's wrong. And it was a stickshift, don't want one out here in AZ.
    I love the kitcars they make out of Fieros.

    Yeh...For Kit Cars, the Fiero took over for the Volkswagen.
    Makes a really nice Lamborghini.

    Thing about Fieros is that they are not expensive. My black 86GT would probably go for around $4000 to $4500.

    Most are $1500 to $2500.
    You'll also find them, needed some work for $500.

    My sons white GT has had offers of $10K.
    He was just offered $7K and another Fiero for his yellow one.
    For these cars, the season also has a lot to do with pricing.
    Blue Book on them is REALLY low. (Not even close to what they sell for.)

    fiero.com is a neat place. All fiero owners.
    Carlisle, PA has a yearly Fiero show. Biggest one on the East coast.
    The Fiero club in Florida also does a Fieros at Daytona show right at the speedway.

    I don't get it, what does the season have to do with anything? I have a Toyota MR2 Spyder (hence the mrspyderman) and I drive it anytime.

    These things aren't real snow cars.
    Althought, with enough bags of sand for weight, I managed to get around.

    Now my GT, being as low as it is, even a little clump of ice on the road is going to hurt something on the car.

    I know, I was just playing wit cha. I'm originally from IN. Before I moved to AZ, I lived in WI. I had a vette at the time (a Chevette ), I worked at the local Wally World as a cashier. I only lived 2 miles away and the heater wouldn't kick on in that time. One of the final straws that made me move out here was when I turned one time in my parents driveway, you had to go in straight or you'd never get out again. So I went over the line in the road just a little bit to get a better angle for their driveway. The road was very slightly higher in the middle than on the sides, I was going very slow, and still I slid off the road.
    I have two cars: the MR2 Spyder for fun and a Mazda 3 for daily driving. If I lived in the midwest again, I would have probably a Subaru (or a SUV)with AWD or LSD (limited slip differential). I would just have one car because of the salt on the road. Thinking about it, if I lived in a cold climate again I'd probably have to have LSD, and I'm not talking about the car option.

    Beautiful cars Rock...too bad they only let Pontiac show the real potential of that car in the last GT model though.
    Whether you think you can...or you can't...you're right!

    Some mistakes are just too much fun to only make once!!!

    I thought I should revive this thread. Jim's last post was two years ago today. I think of him often. Missing you, Rockwannabie.

    You're in my sight, but there's a mist on my lens!
