For those of you who dont know who i am yet im Mike or Foxy Fiero13 and i recently bought the Fiero Limo from Archie. Its been sitting in my drive way for almost a month now no work has started yet but when i do ill post a build thread which will start as soon as this snow goes away. im just thinking of ideas for it right now and i think we might turn it in to a notch back with a whaletail only because there are more parts available for a notchie in our area but we arent 100% sure on it i just really wanna take a poll whould u prefer a fast back no spoiler or a notchie whaletail limo


heres the limo now as a fast back

You need to construct a new roof for the car first before worrying about fastback coupe conversions. Just my 2 cents..

I'm pretty sure I have a non sunroof fiero roof that is cut off/broken off part way down the a-pillars. It's yours for free if you want it, I'll check to see for sure if I have it at my storage building if you're interested. I'll be driving down I 94 to and from Illinios this weekend. Let me know

Suicide rear doors
large cloth sunroof
20 gallon gas tank with the front in stock location to allow extra room between rear seats and balance

I would keep the GT and add the wing... only because people would be more of "WTH?" then in a notch. the notch will make it look like a caddy with an odd front end from the side.

go notchie...imho as a fastback it looks...less exotic like that. Try to make the roof straight if you can...that's my big thing.

Oh and put a good power plant in there...limos are more fun when they're fast =)

You know, if you were a little closer or i in better financial situations i would be there even when you WEREN'T working on it just to see it done

Oh and stick with the Notchie look. Looks cooler than a GT rear end and i will buy the GT rear and taillights off of you or trade you the rear clip and lights off the 87 Steve has when i buy it off of him.

First off. Drop the limo idea and opt for the Fiero 2+2 Concept and go fastback. Otherwise, keeping it as a limo IMHO is too much. Besides, the rumors will be flying and nobody will want to ride in a Limo Fiero due to the lies regarding the fires. Thant's my .02 cents.

Limos always have a 'formal' or squared off roofline. Id change it to a coupe body. Also do what the coach builders do to make the roof easier.....they put on a padded vinyl top.

I would consider a Hi-Top over the rear if it going to be a limo make it comfortable it doesn't look silly over stretched taxis and as made of fiberglass would easily mold in. The roof line tapers to the rear this would fix up that look and give it functionality.

I think a few things would help it right away.

Take and put spacers on the metal to create a flat roofline from the front to the back. You will have to adjust the sunroofs to line it all up.

Put scissor doors on the front, and gullwing style doors on the back.

any extra things added to the body such as large spoilers, widebody kits, or even front hood vents will look out of place, and make the car look "gaudy" too many. It already has a lot added with the stretch, in my opinion anything beyond that looks wise will be too much.

I wish I had the funds to undertake this project. I would be loving it.

Scissors no. Suicide yes.

Gullwings on the back heck yes. But that might require a full tube cage to be built into the car to help with flexing and to overall just beef up the car. Ive been in some older limos that i could actually see the window glass shift in the frame on a turn due to body flex and roll.

Flatten the floor pan in the back section and take out the tunnel.

Go with bench seats in the back.

Oh.. and as far as engine swap..

At least a caddy 4.9.. plenty of torque to get the beast rolling and enough "umph" to move her down the road..

For more style, go with a N*..

That car has changed hands a few times. I believe this car was started by
The Prezzz and Fiero John-WI. Chester had it for a while, and then Archie had it.

+1 for straightening out the roofline - it looks abhorrent as it is because of the way the stock Fiero roof is curved. Flattening it out at least through the middle section would do wonders.

Could be a wickedly nice looking machine when it's all done, but there needs to be a lot of bodywork done to get it looking slick.

They also do this to hide the body flex.
