Georgous car, but I am sorry when I say that the Ferarri emblems will probably get you ridiculed, people may figger you tried to build a cheap kit car but didn't know quite what you were doing. As a Fiero it is one of the nicest I've seen in a long time though....definite +

...now here's an idea that I don't remember seeing before....instead of Ferrari, how about similar emblems/cutouts, but spelling FIERO (in the familiar Fiero font). Sure would be something unique. Just my $.02 worth.

OK, I get it, You hate the emblems..... Thats why its in my garage, He, He. Sh-- I thought i would get more greif about the rear wing from you guys and so far not a word. your letting me down guy's. Anyway the rear window is Tempered glass, I took a router bit down to the local machine shop and had an oversized coller pressed onto the bearing, Cut a hole in the middle fired ur the router, and presto....... Well ok not quite that easy actually it was a real B--ch, thats probably why Skitime and I are the only ones with one.
More so than that its been a fun project for Me. no matter if you like it or not. thats what so great about our little cars, there personal, and theres so much you can do to them.
So next I belive it will be the Engine swap, and a new dash. Just thought I would share some pics

Hey the car looks awesome. The trunk lid turned out great. I guess I will have to order more tempered cut glass for others now since you used my only spare tempered window. You definitly have a head turning car.

I don't know why nobody commented on the wing before, but I do like it. It reminds me of the stock wing, and I like how it doesn't stick out past the sail panels. I'm not a huge fan of the emblems, but the car looks nice as a whole. I'm sure you spent a large amount of time getting all the details how you wanted, and it looks well put together. Good job, a real head turner.

You have done a really nice job with the car, congrats. Great job on the details of the car, the wing looks good, and I wonder where you got the back-end plus tailights from? I also wanted to ask about your sideview mirrors, did you buy real ferrari ones?

How about Fierro? It's closer looking to Ferrari, but still recognizable as fiero. Youl could also use the Italian flag colors in the background (red, white and green)to bring a more European look to the design.

WOW!! I'll gladly drive that car. Emblems and all. One of THE sharpest Fieros I have seen. Did you do all the work yourself (except possibly the painting), or did you have it done in a commercial garage?
Answers, Yes I did all the work myself Im blessed with a friend who owns a body shop, and since i started the project ive taken it over there two times to have him paint it and help with expertise.
What do I tell people, Well, depends on what they say?
Nice car man............Thank You. That is awsome.......... Thanks Thats not a ferrari, Is It?............ No its a pontiac,.............. Yea right. and for those in the know, including our local ferrari dealer where purchased the badging.......Thats Cool.....Thats really Cool...heres a free Gran Turismo ferrari licence plate frame to put on it..

what size tires are you using on your car??? In one of those pics the front driver side tire looks really wide, maybe its just the angle. Anyways I'd be interested to know what size it is cause it looks nice.
oh and thats a great job with the car, as far as the badging goes, i do like the ferrari horse right in the middle, its a nice touch.
