Northstar V8 Fiero Test Drive
The owner of this car, Alan, is one of the coolest guys I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. When I saw him last year, at Northwest Fierofest, I asked him for a ride. Without hesitation, he said yes! Eventually one thing lead to another, and the ride never worked out. This year, when Alan got to the show, I told him I had to get that ride! He showed up at the hotel a few hours later. I asked him if It was a good time, and he said... "You can drive it if you want". I couldn't wait to grab the keys and get behind the wheel. Here's what happened next.
