That whole Ford renaming the 500 a Taurus made me laugh... What are they thinking??
If it is a piece of crap and you call it Gold -- It is STILL crap.

If I was a Ford shopper I'd be insulted.

Thats ok folks, I can tell you for certain that I have personally renamed the new Mustang all on my own... Ford need not trouble themselves. BTW, anyone want a 2005 Ford HORSEBALL! All I can say is a 2-year old car should NOT rattle like a 20-year-old truck!

Sorry, I was trying to stay with the motif of the thread on the pontiac forum. No offense intended.

The Fiero was full of issues and in fact did not sell very well. I doubt GM would change the name of a car that is selling well to one that did not.

I guess tongue-in-cheek humor doesn't always translate over the Web!

Oh, I dunno about that. First year sales of the Fiero was over 135,000. And no, I didn't misplace a decimal.

Over the 5 years it was out, it sold over 370,000 units (84 model year to 88 model year). To put it in perspective, that's about 74,000 annual volume. The Mazda Miata only sold more than that in 1990, and the average kappa volume is expected to be just under 40,000/year.

There's evidence that GM re-upped the trademark on the vehicle name:

I'm not saying that they are bringing back the fiero, but am making the point that it did sell pretty well (in spite of all the bad press) for a 2 seat low-luggage space vehicle. The car STILL has an active following, nearly 20 years after the last one rolled off the assembly line.

I happen to like some of the Sport Fieros. As-is they look pretty good. However, the fiero is a great chassis for a kit-car. (Lambo) It would make for a fun project car.
