Fordman, you haven't seen anything.... a guy at the local Orlando AutoX MSCC has a fiero and he is the most aggressive driver I have ever seen... big engine swap I believe... couple of months ago his hood flew off and he didn't even lift off the throttle..

Oh I know bigger and better exists out there, but this shows how little is required for the Fiero to eliminate bump steer and body roll.

It's spelled "Caliber" not "CalibUr". Just thought I'd let you know.

Back to topic: It's impressive what you can do with such a tiny car. But man, it sure looks ugly to me. Could never drive a car that does not look good on some levels to me.

I like those cars however they would go up in flames faster than a gas soaked BBQ.
I don't see many on the road any more but they should have been strong tuner cars.

If only...

Actually the fire problem was only tied to early-production 1984 Fiero 2M4 (They had the 2.5L Iron Duke 4-cylinder) and since the 2.5L was the whore of GM's FWD fleet of cars, the problem was quickly resolved, as it was engine related, not Fiero related.

My experience with Fieros is that they are too small for me.

But I really think you should get the Ferarri style body kit... that would be slick. :laugh:
