1985 Pontiac Fiero GT
My beautiful 1985 Pontiac Fiero GT. I owned this car for 6 years, but on the morning
of August 2nd, 2001, another driver flew into a road rage when I accidentally pulled
out in front of him. He passed me, jerked back into my lane within inches of my Fiero
and slammed on his brakes. I locked my brakes up, swerved, and knocked over a city
light pole. The other driver drove away, then came back after the police arrived. They
let him go, wrote his lies down on the police report verbatim, and left. Must have been
a hot doughnut waiting back at the station.
Note the extensive front end damage, and the fact that I walked away from the accident virtually unscathed, and in no need of any medical attention whatsoever. Fieros are very safe vehicles as far as I'm concerned, and I'd drive another one any time (in fact, I did: I purchased another to replace this one).
