    When I was 15, I also liked the Pontiac Fiero... but that was before I knew much about cars.

    The Fiero does look cool (the whole point was that it was a Ferrari-ish vehicle that the average person could afford). In actual fact, it was a cheap POS with an unreliable powertrain, crappy interior, crappy suspension, and crappy brakes--and it weighed too much also.

    Long story short, if you're into performance, stay away from the Pontiac Fiero.

    I would like to see the Fiero come back. I always thought those were spiffy cars.

    I thought the last GT's/Formulas made were okay, then GM killed it.

    I like something a little different. If you got to have it I would get the best one you can buy, get suspension and tire and autoX it. Then you'll learn how to drive it and keep it running where handling is most important and 60-100mph acceleration isn't. Then boost it for some power. (Just trying to stay grounded here, not saying you couldn't build it to the moon, that takes alot of time and $$$)

    It's up to you what's cool.

    The 88's suspension was actually designed for the fiero and was on par with that of lotus, hence the rumors that the 88's used a lotus suspension. When it first came out they used suspensions from other cars which is why they were crap but the 88's are a different story. Drivetrains weren't impressive but this was also a time when a sedan could outrun a corvette (GN). The powertrain wasn't unreliable if you knew how to maintain it. Most idiots kinked the rad lines jacking it up or didn't know how to properly fill it.

    slims00ls1z28 is right about these cars... the '88s are the pick of the litter, and a car will only treat u as well as u treat it, right? I wish I could find a clean 88...

    My buddy has one, I call it the flamming canary. Its bright ass yellow. Anyways, no lambo or ferrari kits, but it does have some clean lookin ground effects. He gets a lot of shit for it but if you think about it, its not that bad of a poor mans project car. He bought his out of a junk yard for just a few hundred bucks. Stripped the car. It has some kind of aftermarket tubular suspension with coil-overs, corvette brakes, 17" rims to clear the brakes, ground effects, paint, and blown 3800. I think he said hes on his third engine and the total cost of the car is still under $10k. I'll post pics sometime. I forget how much the car weighs soaking wet but I think its around 1600 lbs. Powered with a 300 hp v6, its a fast car for the dollar.

    With just a handful of mods a sc 3800 should put the fiero in the 12's easily.
