So we could start: it was a complete desaster!! We had to back out from the dealers place, but we
couldn't get into reverse! After 15min of working hard on the joystick finaly the car was in road
direction. The feeling of driving the Fiero was great. So we almost could ignore that the 3rd and 4th
gear wasn't available, too. So we cruised the street almost as a traffic block in a very noisy 2nd gear,
with thousands of rpm's at about 50 mph. So in the next little town we managed to turn around, in
spite of all the dead ends and not trying to use the reverse again, (it wasn't really traffic safe) and
went back to the dealership. The dealer made me the offer to fix everything in the next weeks:
the transmission, the loose roof dome-interior, all the paint damages and the fragile door rubber
frame, (to list everything would explode my webspace). And I believed him - I must have been crazy !!!
After almost 2 month,as I droped by once a week, and I realized that the bad condition went from
worse to even more worse, 'cause the guy didn't turned around one single screw, - I blow the deal!
Also because even if I get the german state inspection (TÜV) I had to buy new tires, 'cause the
rubber-profile was that low you only could imagine it. And the solution for the dome interior was like
this (you can give it a big laugh): He wanted to "staple it" !
but where to find a Fiero again ?!
searched thru the papers and thought about direct car import from the states. Accidently I found
then one in my city, a dark red ' 88 GT automatic, but also in bad conditions. The rear wheel on the
driverside was standing out of the fender about 2 inches, like some one put on wheel spacers.
