Had a visiter today - the Short Bus - aka "Ol Yeller" stopped by this afternoon. The chopped notchie looks really good in person. I have only seen 2 other chops I could touch - both GT's and personally, I love the chopped nothcie.

Short Bus Rides - Step right up - only 5 bucks for a trip around the block!


The Fiero Barn! - One 4.9, one 3800SC, one 3.4 and a Stocker! Just in front of the Durango is my Formula and there is a SBC Fiero in the back yard.


Carver1 giving chop top driving lessons - remember to duck when you get it! Both Rick and Jeff banged thier heads getting in.

Photos never give off the chop tops true look i have never seen one in person but can imagine it looks a hell of a lot better than in pictures.

We rolled in around 1:00am.
Had a great time Pat! I'm glad I finally got to meet everyone.
Now for the next project!


Will these two fit together?

I think that will be one of the fastest 4.9 swaps ever. Pretty much plug and play - after some elbow grease first though. It was great to see you Phil - glad you brought the whole family. I am still laughing about your girls wanting to come back to Texas for Pizza! I woke up this morning and this:

Was still in my driveway! What am I going to do with this?

So I fired it up and took it around back. I did not want it to get lonely during the day when the other Fiero's are gone to school and work so I parked it next to the 86 V8 Coupe.


Too low to drive over the dirt pile!


Stay tuned!

Pat

After a long stay in New Mexico in Phil's care, the Short Bus (aka Ol' Yeller) has come home to El Paso - has a new owner - and will be going through some "changes" over the next month.

Stay tuned! You never know - it could be back on the auction block by September!

You can sure see the difference in the roof height between the bus and the V8 coupe parked side by side.

No wonder I hit my head getting in.
