I think I should put the Fiero crash test pic next to the Blazer one in the other thread and ask my parents which one they said was the death trap... Sound like a good idea? Think that would change their perception of the Fiero? Anyways, it is sad it only lasted one generation. It had so much potential. It wasn't profitable? That's BS. It turned a profit every year. Chevy just couldn't handle a car from the performance division beating its legendary Vette and costing much less. Pontiac had many prototype Fieros blowing the doors off of the Vette at the Milford proving grounds. V8 and turbo 3.4L powered ones with aluminum chassis. Chevy wasn't too happy about that. To add to that, some GM execs never liked it in the first place and tried to kill it many times. So Pontiac never really got the engines they wanted for it and many parts were shared (not necessarily a bad thing). GM underfunded it and by 88 it had a limite advertising budget and was stuck in plant that GM management and UAW contractual agreements mandated that there be a specific number of workers based on some factors that really didn't apply to the Fiero plant's way of operating. It was running under capacity and was overstaffed since GM cancelled the GM80 FWD spaceframe platform that the Camaro and Firebird were to move to. To top all of that off, GM wanted to use the equipment from the Fiero line to make Saturns. So... GM killed the Fiero. Now the Corvette rides on a chassis similar in design to the Fiero's. Now I hope you guys see why I have ill feelings towards GM, Chevy, Saturn, and the UAW. :D

Always wanted a Fiero, I'm sure I'll have one someday. Almost convinced my dad to buy one on two separate occasions. I also was to own a Corvair someday. REAL BAD.

Nobody can because all prototypes were 1989 models. Production ended in 88 why would there be a 1990 model?

Most of the Prototypes are very unappealing to me. I'd take a '84 SE over that gray whale myself.

Actually... it is a 1990 prototype. http://www.cheersandgears.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/AH-HA_wink.gif

Why would GM call a concept a 1990 when it was shown in 1987 or 88? Especially when the 1988 model was the last year?

It was covered on Fiero.nl about 1.5 years ago. If you go search you can find it.
