      "Spirit" won "Best of Modified" in 2003 and again 2004. Not showing this year just displaying. Sorry no pictures. I gotta learn how to do it. Don't have any of latest changes anyway and I am not through with the car.

      Went to my first show in Daytona in 1998 when I purchased my 1st fiero. Had no idea what I was getting into at that point but I do remember that I told my son that next year we are going to enter my car. So after working on it long and hard here is what I have racked up in past years:
1999 1st Place in Daily Driver SE Class
2000 1st Place in Street SE Class
2001 1st Place in Street SE Class
Moved up a notch in 2002 and decided to make some changes to the car.
2002 1st Place in Custom Class SE Notchback
2003 2nd Place in Custom Class Notchback
2004 - missed Daytona wife won a free all expense paid trip to Maui HI through her work so I could say no on that one, even though I was really thinking Daytona the whole trip. In fact I actually went out to Daytona on Thursday, stayed all day, slept for a few hours and then drove back to Tampa in the wee hours of the morning to catch a flight out Friday morning. While out whale watching on Saturday, I was talking to Frank Martin (Dragon) checking on the show instead of looking for blooming whales. I have a very understanding wife.

All this and I drive my Fiero every day back and forth to work. Going to repaint this year for the show but that is about it. And of course clean clean clean. Wouldn't miss the show for anything.
Won at Osage Beach Fiero Fesival in 2002 - Board of Directors Choice
Won 2nd Place at the 17th Annual Fiero Fesival in Williamsburg also
As you can se I drive my car everywhere.

      This is good stuff. This will be my first year. I'm entering Daily Driver Custom.

      I took third place in Custom Rebody (red F308 style) in 2004 and have some pictures but they are too large (350K to 400K) to post on the Forum. Anyone have a good image resizer program?

kmunson56 ( MSG #15, 02-17-2005 09:01 PM
      Our GT took 2nd in custom, best wheels, best reengineered, inovation award, and most scoops award in 2002. Got 3rd in modified and peoples choice in 2003. Didn't take it to the 2004 show due to engine problems. Our Formula got "Best in Stock" and best stock paint at the 2004 show. Both will be in display class this year so we can enjoy all the other cars more.

So, what's with the white paint and why did you paint the windows, too? Not sure I like it. Is this something new for the Custom and Modified classes?

Ronnie ( MSG #21, 02-22-2005 07:30 PM
      GET OUT , GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN PHIL !!! I think if I was you , I'd go ahead and leave tomorrow and head on down to Florida. I remember what your car looked like last year when you got there !! You need to post a picture of it "as is" or would that be "as was" .
Hey Tom , what happened to that car? I've never seen pictures of it before.Where is it now? Good looking car, as usual.

      Didn't the Plasma win at Daytona 2004?

85LAMB ( MSG #24, 02-25-2005 06:33 PM
      The Plazma won first place in it's class which I think was toghether with the rebodies.

Now that is funny, that is the same as Armstrong saying, I know how to ride a bike but I never win.....
For those that don't know, his car has won best in class in Daytona and a big show up north.
His car is my favorite Fiero, his attention to detailed is impressive and I am suprissed it has not been in a magazine jet, but I am sure it will one day.

Ronnie ( MSG #25, 02-25-2005 10:39 PM
      Somebody correct me if I'm wrong here , but didn't "Plasma" win "Best of Show" last year?

bonzo ( MSG #26, 02-26-2005 11:23 PM
      Well that's 12 PFFers that have won. I'm sure there are more.

CoolBlue87GT ( MSG #27, 02-27-2005 01:02 AM

      I got the "most miles driven" award last year. I think Curley will take that honor this year!
