^ ha...

That MK1 photo at the bridge with the waves crashing against the rocks is amazing! I haven't seen too many MK1's but they look pretty nice, what year is that?

The one thing that gets to me in that picture is the "Fiero" sticker on the windshield.

The pics with your GT are really nicely done, especially the first two 8)

I've toyed with the idea of getting & modifying a Fiero in the past, at least suspension since I've heard the stock setup is terrible to drive. They're so inexpensive to buy now it could be great fun to play around with

This car is a great mid engine, light weight, relatively well rounded package... especially when you consider the era of its development.

Strange how people fall head over heals for the MR2 yet are so quick to dismiss the Fiero.

Of course it has its flwas, and not the least was being unlucky enough to be built by Pontiac - this car should have been the baby Chevrolet Corvette - that way it would have been able to be like the "lesser" Porsches along side the 911TT and actually might have had a long term chance in the market.

The Solstice et al all suffer from 'copy cat' syndrome and don't have the benefit of 15 years R&D the way they would have had the Fiero stayed in production.

I always thought the Fiero got a bum rap.

Nice Rides

BTW, Stoopie.. what car type does tickle your fancy?

@RC45: I don't know, I've got to like the lines of the car.. I just don't like the lines of this one It's a feeling I have to have with a car, and I have to say that I like modern cars a lot better than the more old cars. For instance, I prefer a car stuffed with gadgets and a big engine to a car that's old and has a great legacy to share!

Comments like that just start flames wars which im really tired of. If you dont have anything good to say dont say it. "I dont really like those cars, but the photography is good!" would have been more of a worthwile post

^ OMG, if you post something you can expect to get comments, right? Doesn't matter if their wrong or right, they'll come, it's a forum! And sure, the pictures are nice, but just add to the topic then that you only want positive comments :')

Well I didnt ask if you like Fieros or not, but whatever. Im not going to argue about it. Thanks

For everyone who wants to see more I have 2 shoots set up for early next week ill update here at the top.

Theres one Fiero GT I really wish I could have a photo shoot with. Any of you talented photographers in the contest every month live in Germany? Maybe you could!

your posts here have absolutely NO content.

the least you could do is mention something about the photos for the photo's sake.... even the backdrop.

Nobody cares if you do or don't like the car, this is a WYST section, no the Cool Wall asshat.

BTW, thanks for sharing... was your name formerly 88ssportlover or something like that?
