Hmm...Can't decide what I think. It does look very well-done, just a bit too low for my tastes...
I think it'll be the 3" for me.

I would have to agree. It looks to be too much for a Fiero, although, with a creative body kit, it could be very promising. The high tail-end of a Diablo comes to mind... the whole, even with the roofline rear might be interesting. You start venturing into kitcar territory then.
That rear bumper area doesn't make the car look like it was in the best condition to start, but I suppose it works for the "experimentation" process.

Why are you guys being such bastards about it. He obviously went to a-lot of trouble to do this, and your all putting it down. I think it looks really good, once the paints fixed up, and you put some new wheels on it, it will look really good.

Scrotum is right, this car isn't even finished yet and it's getting slammed. Ten bucks says when it's finished, veiw-points will change. I somehow find it hard to believe that this is all he's going to do to this car...

even when it is finished, I will not like it. 5 inches is too low. plain and simple. no one was bashing it, just saying they didn't like it. Dont be so quick to attempt to start a flamewar that you dont read what ppl actually say.

what he said ^. I stated my opinion, if you dont like that fact that i dont like the car tough. What? Are we all suppose to like it? Are we all suppose to think its great because you do? If it was my car, id want people not to like it, if everone said it looks great id know they are lying.

that photoshop version looks awesome.. if thats what the real one will look like my god! that will be sweet. It's not for me cause I wouldnt be able to fit in it, but maybe if it was a 3 inch drop on the top, and somehow raised the door height and fender heights... would be a lot more work, and prolly too much money involved but it would be pretyt nince
The roof-line is definately not level... that's the first thing I noticed too. If this was a completed project, i.e., body work done and all painted, I would have to say that it is in fact "bodgy" as Aus would say. I emailed the guy with this car and told him about Pennock's, and also asked for more info and pictures. Maybe he could shed some more light on the subject... it would be great to see him join this conversation...

Archie should do this the right way with a Formula bodie and a fastback for his next show car and while he's at it throw in a set of lambo doors like on that ricey fiero posted a while back. Oh ya and a LS-1
You'll find a lot of "constructive" criticism here in the forum. Sometimes it's not exactly what we want to hear, but it is none the less all opinions, and should only be taken as just that; opinions. I don't get too excited anymore when someone bashes one of my ideas (very rare... HAH HA HA!) or feels it's necessary to let you know how they don't like what YOU do with YOUR car. That's the magic of free speech I guess...
That being said, I'm sure you'll find lot's of people here in the forum, including myself, who understand the hobby and want to help others along the way. That's what most of us are here for; to help fellow enthusiasts to enjoy our hobby lifestyle.
I'll be the first one to welcome you to the forum! Here's the pictures you sent... BTW, thanks a bunch for sharing!
Interesting shots. Maybe you could share more with us as to how you went about the choppin' and what other things you have planned.
...I for one, can't wait!

Not to worry, MrJones! We have some extremely intelligent and helpful folks on here. I've only been around for about two months and have had more help and more decent conversations than I can shake a stick at. If I wanted to, anyhow.
I'd tend to agree that it's too low for ME personally, but that sure is no reason for anyone else to NOT do something! I'd ignore me if I was you!
OH! And, welcome to the forum!
'86 GT on the road for the summer! '85 SC on the road too! Fiero to the Max!
