Having jumped / skipped many Fiero's I could have told them it was the wrong car to try it with. With the mid engine, the rear end is heavy and as such, sprung stiff. Even when you have smooth upward rise, the leverage / weight transfer loads the rear, the front end gets in the air and the rear springs upwards.

Imagine doing that and being IN the car, the ass end rising up over you. IT's SCARY! But tons of fun.

You can bash those cars, but they rock. I beat the hell out of one for years and it never failed. No rust, the '88 handled great.
