    So did this episode change your mind at all on the Fiero? Is it under-rated? Over-rated? Still a fire hazard? Let me know! If you've owned one, I want to hear about it! If you want one now...I wanna hear about it!

      My 84 fiero blown up like a little nuclear bomb (white cloud ) on the highway here in the Netherlands.
      a Rod spun out, hole in oilpan. But No Fire!
      I rebuilted the engine and drives real good. Why?
      Easy to work on,good GasMileage, I like the Notchback Styling , Roadtax cheap, headrest speakers,
      and of course the Pop up Headlights!

    Go to my you tube sight video of my Fiero when it was stock, doing an off-the-line take-off, also my later 3.4 swap walk-around. She is now running a 270hp 3800sc out of a 2003 Bonneville. Very fast...!

                    Never heard of this model in my life. Saw a picture today in a completely unrelated read, was left wondering "WTF, that thing looks nice".

                    Mid-1980s car that honestly wouldn't look out of place nowadays. Sad story for the model, but the aesthetics of that thing are just right. The 1988 model in particular looks awesome. Sad the model got axed, really has the looks.

                        You know with a few mods a 350 v-8 will bolt right in, you do lose the spare tire. but any Fearo that had the 2.6 will accept a small block, the bell housing the same.

                          They did similar $hit with the Reatta....off the shelf parts when they could have put a supercharged 3800 instead..

                              GM has been a "design by committee" company for years. John Delorean was the last great engineer they had. I think the Fiero was partially based on his designs.

                                  It was sold sa commuter car for girls,
                                  It had no power steering !
                                  So can't turn wheels if standing still... Only 3 turns rack on it...
                                  Fire car burns in front, engine are in rear, it it was the pcv rubber that failed and started to leak on the stock pipe header below. Car outran the vw golf gti from same time.

                                  Fail points are:
                                  Weak unvented brakes.
                                  Stuck headlights.
                                  Crappy head lights, as sealed beam.
                                  Tiny fuel tank in middle of car.
                                  Leaking sunroofs and dropping inner roofs (like on all other American cars).
                                  Crappy plastic interior that cracks.
                                  On 1988 you can't buy new rear bearings as gm 'never' sold them as spares.
                                  Seats can't be moved back, if over 1,90.
                                  It came stock with sub woofer stock.
                                  And so on...
                                  I got a blue 1987GT v6 2,8L

                                            You better not do Fierro without doing one for RX-7 and The Nissan Z. Anyone my age will read this and easily see the correlation. Anyone older or younger will think "What the fuck is he smoking?"

Of course my buddies dad didn't know this as he was kicked out for something else but yeah. Took them 8 months to find it too. Another friend had the base model which was insanely funny as he was 6'4" driving a girls car.

I think James meant to say that 20 caught fire per month adding up to a total of 260 cars catching fire. Easy mistake. This episode is still probably the greatest 😂
