    I've always really liked what GM was doing in the late 80s and early 90s. Mom had a 93 or 94 Z24. I had a 92 Lumina Z34. Our neighbors had a Lumina Euro. My aunt and uncle had a Bonneville SSE and another guy in town had an SSEi. A friend of mine had a Beretta Z26 and another friend's parents had a Quad 442 and a Grand Prix GTP. I'd have zero problem owning any one of them.

    I wouldn't expect to find one at Barrett Jackson, though.

    GM made some awesome low end sporty cars in the very early 90s.

    The beretta gtz with the 180hp NA 4 cyl was Sweet.

    The ultra rare olds quad 4 442 with the very hi-po W41 190hp NA-4cyl is hideous, but amazing. Motor trend did a [email protected] with it.
    I remember looking at them in high school, they had a crazy header and was a surprisingly quick motor in absolutely terrible gms. Made me wonder what would have happened if they made another fiero

    Their powertrains were solid. But the cars themselves in that era were generally terrible. Awful interiors, uncomfortable seats, bad driving position, dreadful audio systems, handling like your living room sofa etc.

    Disagree on all counts except for the audio systems, which was every car back then.

    Agreed. It wasn't just that era, it's been every era.

    Oh man! Could you imagine that in a fiero?!

    The corsica is the real beauty
    We had an '88 Corsica that we bought in '89 and sold in '99, I learned how to drive in that car. By the end all I remember was the horrible lifter tick from the 2.8L V6, the red interior and the awful peeling paint.

    There were some cool cars for the time, my aunt had a '96 Bonneville SSEi with the supercharged 3.8L. My high school brain remembers that car being really quick, and the 12 way adjustable front seats were pretty comfortable. The incredible amount of FWD torque steer and poor handling left a lot to be desired though.
