    I like it. But it looks like it's leaning forward a bit too much.

    I think the problem is that the front end is too small, like someone cut a smaller car's nose off and attached it to a larger car. The design in general is very interesting. I like it.

    wow! thank you kindly! for something you must have done quickly (i only put the request in last evening) that's very impressive! you totally nailed what i want to see in a fiero... the strong back end with the low, aggressive front end. that nose'd work just fine if you ask me! okay, build it!

    A little to tall and the grill just isn't right. But I love the idea. The Fiero was a great car.

    i wonder if it's been long enough to ressurect the fiero name. obviously there's a benefit to having a recognized name, but if that name is inextricably linked with "underpowered" or "commuter car" or "engine fires", it won't do any good. but 16 years later, i have to wonder if perhaps enough time has passed to clear the fiero's name...

    though i'm sure the black cloud of melted plastic fumes still hovers somewhere over north america!

    I'm not sure aobut you but I live in Southern ontario and there always seems to be a fiero on the road with it's wheel in the middle of traffic....might just be my neighborhood or the crazy Cnadian weather but I personally don't think that an image like that is too good for PR...or clearing the fiero name

    really?!? i've never seen that... but maybe because i don't want to! i do see a fair number by the side of the road. you might be right... the name conjures up a few too many problems to be used again.

    and i think 'fiero', roughly translated (from spanish, maybe?) means "pride" or "dignity"! oops! better luck next time boys!

    yeah...I exagerated it a bit...it's the same old lady, in a white GT....really nicely kept...except that damn wheel...it seems like it's almost once a week...but...I'm probably exagerating that in my mind...lol
