Default The main whip... '85 Fiero.

Well since my mazda is out and about as a loaner car, this has been my "new" replacement. It'* a fiero, obviously, 2.5 iron duke 4 banger with the THM-125 3-speed auto. Rides like horse ****, doesn't get good gas mileage, slow, no A/C, weak heat, power NOTHING. Runs great though, motor'* got 70k on it tranny and body have 151k. Clearcoat'* peeling, wheels are rusting out, half the things in it don't work (rear defrost, A/C as mentioned). But i can't complain, the girls LOVE it and it has really comfortable seats. I just put the deck in, it'* a Dual 6820, plays MP3, WMA, display'* ID3 tags, and came with a miniplug aux. adaptor. Sounds much better than the stock unit. Well enough ranting here'* the goodies:

I always liked them butz at that time, no money and too many kids . That one looks in pretty good shape. Dont see em around here any more. I bet a 3.8 would make the little go kart haul!
