The History of Fierorama
Fierorama was originally designed and
still remains as an honor to the daily driven Fiero. Our first
intention was to
see just how many Fieros we could get in one
place on one day. The goal of Fierorama is not to award the most
pristine, showroom new, trailered Fieros. Rather, our goal is to
reward the owners who do not consider their
Fiero a show car because they
use it everyday and find it difficult to keep it in showroom condition.
Ideally, we would like to reward the best-looking Fiero with the most
amount of miles on it.
The Fierorama classes are broken down by body style and
more importantly, mileage so that cars are competing
in classes together
that have similar wear and tear.
As Fiero owners continue to enjoy driving their cars,
each year we adjust the class mileage descriptions to
The first Fierorama took place in 1996. Over
seventy Fieros participated. Our participation numbers continue to
grow with each year. Consider attending to find out why! Past
