Hello everyone! I'm Lady Lisa, aka, Mrs. "troyboy". As some of you may know, I have recently purchased a Pontiac Enterra Vipre. I will be documenting the restoration and modification on this thread. Troy has told me that you guys are great help with finding out information and Photoshopping ideas, such as color, wheels, etc. Here are a few pics and a video of the car in its current condition. WARNING: She is in rough shape

The look I'm going for with a few changes, but I like the look of the car in black so black it will be:

Ooooo... that top view of the black Enterra is just slick! I think you sent it into the right hands. With the right wheels and body work it'll be a head-turner for all the right reasons. Tell me though, have you considered updating the tail lights for it or do you want to keep it original? (Maybe it's just me but I find they make the rear view look too much like a Datsun). Either way, good luck.

Thanks! Troy & I are tossing ideas for the taillights. They definitely need to be updated.

Lisa,
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on what I think is gonna be a VERY cool project. I love the looks of that black car too and it has a very exotic shape. I would think personally that some lowering and adjusting of the stance and some much larger more update wheels would go a LONG way and personally I would go 3800 TURBO to back up the looks. That is really a unique looking car and I am quite sure Archie and CO. will take good care of it and make it the beautiful car you are dreaming of. I for one can't wait to see the finished product. There are lots of different rebodies out there for the fiero and IMHO this is one of the rarer and more attractive ones. Peace

Pete

Thanks for the input. For the wheels, I mentioned to Troy a nice set of HRE's and he passed out. . As far as the motor, I'm looking at an LS4 Automatic.
