1985 Pontiac Fiero GT
I bought this car in 1999. I owned the car for about 3 years, from 1999 to 2001. I purchased this car from an online sale at Pennock's Fiero Forum.
I was looking specifically for this model and configuration because I wanted something that was really quick that I could enjoy driving while keeping the miles off my nicer 1987 Fiero SE / V6. This particular car
had a lot of miles on it, but was well maintained. I bought the car with about 140 thousand miles on it. The previous owner had done a bit of work, no "performance" upgrades, or at least not intentionally. The
Fiero had decked heads (they had warped), which boosted the compression to around 9.1:1 (the intention was not more power), and the transmission was replaced with a similar model that had a higher gear ratio of
4.10:1 instead of the standard 3.65:1 that was offered that year. That, coupled with the lack of catalytic converter made this car a rocket. It easily ran the quarter mile in low 15s all day long.
put about 20 thousand miles on this car, and sold it with 163k miles to someone in the same city and state from which I originally purchased it (Dayton, Ohio). The next owner drove the car for another 20
thousand miles, and finally destroyed the half-shafts during a burnout. I don't know if this car is still on the road.
