Bendle & MacKenzie Pontiac Fiero Rocky Mountain Rally May 1991
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.

Huge Big Rig Race Crash! June 2002 Calgary
Scary Big Rig Race Crash June 2002 Calgary. (Crash at the 2:00 mark)
One of the scariest moments I caught in all my 25 years covering racing at
Race City. Look for #76, the star and stripes Peterbilt get pinched and
wrecked into the corner three wall at the 1:59 mark. Fortunately the driver
suffered only minor injuries despite having to be rescued by safety crew
with jaws of life. The destruction was staggering, however the truck
cockpit stayed together due in part to the construction and thought given
to protecting the driver. The race was red flagged in less than five
seconds, Race City recue crew was on his truck in less than 30 seconds. I
will follow this up with an interview with Mike (the racer) I conducted a
HUGE Fiero Compilation , 250+ Pics
*Guys, Thanks so much for the 50,000 views! Please leave comments if you
want, I try to answer all the ones I can.
I collected all these photos for myself when I had my Fiero because each
picture inspired me in some way, never thought putting them in a slide show
would get people watching. If you know anyone with a Fiero, lead them here
so they can get some inspiration/ideas about theirs too.

Oil Change in a Pontiac Fiero
The Pontiac Fiero is just like any other sports car (or any other car) when
it comes to oil changes. Warm up the car, lift up the end where the engine
is, take out the oil pan drain plug, let the oil drain out, put the drain
plug back in, change the oil filter, refill with fresh oil.
I've been doing it myself ever since the car was new. The hardest part of
the whole procedure, over the last nearly 30 years, was filming the whole
thing for this video. If you're thinking of changing your Fiero oil
yourself, hope it helps.

Pontiac Fiero NHTSA Frontal Crash Test
This is one of the original crash test videos for the Pontiac Fiero. In
this video, dummies were restrained with the factory seatbelts.
"Fieros are deathtraps!" Not hardly......
Many people think that the Pontiac Fiero is an unsafe vehicle due to its
small size. It turns out that the Fiero was the safest vehicle ever tested
by the NHTSA without airbags. It was the second safest vehicle on the road
in 1985, second to the Volvo DL Wagon. The DL had airbags. Even by today's
standards, the Fiero still rivals many newer vehicles on the road today.
The methods of testing are exactly the same in 2010 as they were back in
1979 when NHTSA began testing cars. Cars are tested by impacting a solid
barrier at 35 MPH.
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.
Here are a few comparisons:
1984 Pontiac Fiero
Head Injury Criterion: 356.5/308.6
Chest Deceleration (G): 30.9/29.9
Femur Load 840/800 800/740
2003 Cadillac Deville
Head Injury Criterion: 826/507
Chest Deceleration (G): 75/58
Femur Load: 825/1297 875/848
2007 Buick Lacrosse
Head Injury Criterion: 374/259
Chest Deceleration (G): 43/42
Femur Load: 1099/1112 909/405
2009 Ford Focus
Head Injury Criterion: 521/389
Chest Deceleration (G): 40/40
Femur Load: 1133/1652 1138/968
As you can see, the 1980s Pontiac is still one of the safer cars on the
road today. The Fiero is as good as or better than many of today's vehicles
that have airbags.
The Fiero is also very stable. The Fiero received a Static Stability
Factor, or Rollover Resistance rating, of 1.47. This equates to a 5-star
Even if you are unfortunate enough to get into a rollover accident, the
Fiero excels in safety once again with its incredibly strong roof
structure. According to the NHTSA, the Fiero was tested by inverted drop
and roof crush testing. In the inverted drop test, the Fiero, along with
cars like the Ford F150 and Plymouth Laser were turned over and dropped on
their roofs. The Fiero scored best with 8.3 cm crush on the a-pillar and
3.8 cm on the B-pillar. The Ford F-150 had the worst rating with 42.5cm
crush on a-pillar and 40.6cm on the B-pillar. The Plymouth Laser actually
had a slightly better rating than Fiero for B pillar with 3.2cm crush.
In another publication, NHTSA tested cars roofs by crushing them with a
steel plate and hydraulic ram. In the example given, the Chevrolet S10 had
the worst rating with 5320 lbs roof strength, while the Fiero has the
highest rating with 9909 lbs of roof strength. This equates to 3.53 roof
strength to weight ratio, complying with even the most recent roof strength
requirement of 3.00:1 strength ratio. It is kind of funny how the Pontiac
Fiero is still meeting many of the most modern crash test requirements
without even frontal airbags.....
Now for Death rate. Death rate is a number given to cars to reflect the
likelihood of death in any particular vehicle. The Fiero, along with Camaros and Firebirds,
happen to have a very high death rate. A high death rate doesn't mean the
car is unsafe, it just means that this type of car is going to be driven faster and more recklessly,
increasing the chance of an accident, which in turn, increases the chance
of serious injury or death. If you hit a concrete wall at 80MPH with no
seatbelts on, I don't care what car you are in, you will be killed. The
human body just simply cannot take that kind of G load and people need to
stop driving like idiots. Please comment. I would like to see your reaction
to this and hear some of your crash stories. Please drive responsibly.
