    I always loved Fieros. They were actually the first car I wanted. Dad on the otherhand was caught up on all that fire hype and wouldn't get me one. Then I started researching them and actually learning about all the "myths" and that the engine fire was reported in less than 1% (.07 to be exact) of the vehicles and only on the 84 models with the 2.5L. They fixed the reason that it was "possible" through tsb's and recalls. Most problems associated with them especially the cooling problems were either through improper fill or jacking techniques. Fiero's got an unfair rap because of that which is sad given it was a great platform especially after the 88 redesign where they used an actual suspension designed for the Fiero specifically ( almost an exact copy but actually not a Lotus design) not a FWD suspension turned around backwards and a front suspension pirated from a Chevette. Hell in 84 it beat out the new Corvette for pace car honors at the Indy 500. The 89 concept would have been a corvette killer but as you know it got the axe. They couldn't have a car that would out run and out handle the vette for less coin And if you look at the prototype you can see alot of 4th Gen Fbody in there.

    LS1+Fiero = a car that will run autocross and the 1/4 very well for not that much coin I will have one as soon as I get some of these other projects taken care of.

    There is a guy with a LS6's fiero that runs 11's named Nick Wagoner. Hes got a 150 shot but hasen't used it at the track yet. He actually wrote a book on how to install a LS1 into a Fiero. 2920 with driver and a modded LS1 is f'n quick. Now way I'd do a bonsai run in it thoug too short.

    I've actually seen someone put a 350 in a fiero.. hard to keep the nose on the ground above 125MPH.. while a good idea in ones mind.. not the greatest.. it was fast as shit after they put some air scoops to get some down pressure though. looked like a dust pan porturding from the front of the car.

    one cool LS2 swap i saw was into a 1985 porsche 944 i believe ( front drive rear trans axle) talk about a SWEET and very nimble car!

    Are they cool? Only if you have an authentic members only jacket...

    Ok just bustin your chops. A neighbor loves them and gave his most recent one to his mom. I kind of miss seeing the Fiero in the hood, hope he buys another one. He loves fixing them up. A guy at work has a GT as a DD, must love them too. I worked w/ a guy in HS and that was is first car.

    All I remember was it rode like a go-cart, super low and seem to turn on a dime. I think they cool. I would drive an LS1 Fiero any day, and proudly sport my members only jacket, lol...


    thanks for the flash back memories

    BTW I know some one that was doing to Lambo kit on one. What a huge waste of a fine American car. The kit looked ridiculous and no way it could ever pass as a real lambo.

    sorry i'm an 80s kid

    Big HAir

    Cheesie music

    And cars only out done by the late 70s, I mean what is worse than a K car? The Fiero was definately not the worst of that generation.

    I can't even think of the clothes I wore, yikes. I would love to see a Fiero with ghost flames or the good old fashion 57 Bel Aire Flames, yeah baby shag-a-del-ic baby

    damn now i wish my neighbor had his. I would love to take it for a spin...
