Pontiac Fiero NHTSA Frontal Crash Test WITHOUT Seatbelts
This is another crash test video for the Pontiac Fiero. In this test, the
occupants are NOT wearing seatbelts. This goes to show how deadly even the
safest cars can be when the occupants are not wearing seatbelts.
This was tested at 29.7 MPH into a solid Barrier. The driver would have a
fair chance of surviving, but would have broken ribs and sternum. The
passenger would have a broken neck from its head going through the
The Fiero received a 5 star crash rating for both driver and passenger. A
5-star rating means a 10% or lower chance of serious injury. So 5-star
means the same now as it meant 25 years ago.
Head Injury Criterion: 356.5/308.6
Chest Deceleration (G): 30.9/29.9
Femur Load 840/800 800/740
Head Injury Criterion: 870.5/552
Chest Deceleration (G): 62.6/90.6
Femur Load 1113/1170 1056/1067
So as you can see, by not wearing your seatbelt, the crash test rating of
this car goes from 5 stars to only 2 stars. Thats going from less than 10%
of serious injury to 36-40% chance of serious injury!!!!!
Before you comment, realize this test is WITHOUT SEATBELTS.

Drama at the 2008 Fiero Reunion
There were many stories at the 2008 Fiero Reunion at the Marriott
Centerpoint in Pontiac, Michigan. Here are two. The parking space standoff
ended peacefully; they settled it like gentlemen; we would expect no less
of Fiero owners. Now, those Corvette, Solstice, Miata and Viper
ruffians.... well, you know THEM;-)

Bendle & MacKenzie Pontiac Fiero Rocky Mountain Rally May 1991. Quite
possibly the most outrageous Pontiac Fiero rally car around. With Time
Bendle piloting and Art MacKenzie navigating, they were never boring. Plus
a couple of clips of rather rare Toyota Celica 4WD and a Mazda 323 AWD.
5th Scale BurnOut Time! FG Dragster Test Runs
Finally, I'm taking my FG Dragster out for a testrun. The dragster is
powered by a BZM 28.5 Torque Tuned engine which I dropped in a FG
Sportsline 2WD. I've converted my Sportsline chassis to a 1970's Dodge
Challenger, with lots of custom parts. In the video series you will be able
to follow this build from the very start, to the point where it will
finally start burning some rubber!
The custom servo setup works great, the BZM has massive torque, and I love
running this scaled down muscle car! A few alterations will be made in the
future, such as a bit thicker diff oil, and perhaps a different clutch to
make it engage a bit more aggressively. For a first run, I was more than
satisfied and this ride is everything I hoped it to be.

The Pontiac Fiero is a mid-engined sports car that was built by the Pontiac
division of General Motors from 1984 to 1988. The Fiero—meaning "proud"
in Italian and "wild", "fierce", or "ferocious" in Spanish—was designed
by George Milidrag and Hulki Aldikacti as a Pontiac sports car. The Fiero
was the first two-seater Pontiac since the 1926 to 1938 coupes, and also
the first and only mass-produced mid-engine sports car by a U.S.
manufacturer. Many technologies incorporated in the Fiero design such as
plastic body panels were radical for its time. Alternative names considered
for the car were Sprint, P3000, Pegasus, Fiamma, Sunfire, and Firebird
XP. The Fiero 2M4 (two-seat, Mid-engine, four-cylinder)
was on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1984. The 1984 Fiero was
the Official Pace Car of the Indianapolis 500 for 1984, beating out the new
1984 Chevrolet Corvette for the honor.
370,168 Fieros were produced over the relatively short production run of
five years; by comparison, 163,000 Toyota MR2s were sold in its first five
years. At the time, its reputation suffered from criticisms over
performance, reliability and safety issues. Today, however, compared to
less adventurous attempts at two-seaters such as the Ford EXP, the unique
style of the Fiero compared to other American cars has left it a cult
following as a collectible car. It remains a popular chassis for rebodies
and electric conversions
Already selling the Corvette, General Motors management and accountants
were opposed to investing in a second two-seater sports car. But in 1979,
during the oil crisis, management saw a market opportunity for a
fuel-efficient sporty commuter car, and design work on the Fiero commenced.
To this end, it was fitted with a fuel efficient version of GM's 2.5 L
four-cylinder "Iron Duke" engine capable of 27 mpg-US (8.7 L/100 km; 32
mpg-imp) in the city and 40 mpg-US (5.9 L/100 km; 48 mpg-imp) on the
highway with the economy-ratio transmission option. These figures are U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency test-circuit results, published by Pontiac,
and confirmed from multiple sources. It was impressive mileage for a 2.5
L engine of the period, and still good by today's standards, but the
three-speed automatic reduced highway mileage to only 32 mpg-US (7.4 L/100
km; 38 mpg-imp). With respect to fuel economy, the Fiero would appeal to a
market niche for which the Corvette with its V8 engine was unsuitable.
1987 saw changes to the front and rear fascias on the "base coupe" with the
SE and GT models keeping the same "Aero" nose. The new non-aero noses lost
the black bumper pads of the earlier models and had a smoother look. The
four-cylinder engine's power rating increased to 98 hp (73 kW) with some
major modifications which included a roller cam, redesigned intake
manifold, distributorless ignition system (DIS), open combustion chamber
cylinder head and upgraded throttle-body fuel injection system. This was
the last year for the spin-on oil filter on the four-cylinder. The car was
offered in Bright Metallic Blue and replacing the ribbed black molding was
the round style found on the GT models. As a side note, the SE models
retained the ribbed molding, and added the aero nose found on the GT.
Redesigned headlight motors appeared in 1987. Additionally, starting with
the 1987 model Pontiac dealerships offered an upgrade in the form of an
"option" that changed the original body to a Ferrari-type body, called the
Fiero Mera. While technically a "kit", the change in body style was offered
only on new Fieros and is considered a class of car in its own right. There
was a limited production of Fiero Meras made however, as the company that
produced them, Corporate Concepts, was sued by Ferrari and ordered to stop.
