Set the suspension a little higher and you would have a nice sandhog. Cool idea

Anyone want to explain to me why there is a generator on the top of it?

I'm surprized they do not have any warning lights on it. Bet someone is going to plow right into that.

I dont know what theyre using it for. They paint the lines with BIG trucks and a 2-3 man crew. It looks to me like maybe they use it to mount the centerline/ lane reflectors. Generator gives them power for the gun to shoot the 'nails'. I see no spray boom or sprayers on it. But there are boxes on the passenger side, and hes reaching down to the pavement on the drivers side.

um.... doesn't look like enough of that contraption qualifies to be called a Fiero..... How much Fiero is left in that thing anyway? All I see is the seats, the wheels, (?) and maybe the motor. Neat looking thing though.

Seems like an awfully expensive way to carry a generator...
But hey, tax dollars hard at work

I was wondering what one could build using the complete rear cradle/engine/suspension and the front cross-member/suspension...this wasn't quite where I was headed with it.

I can't figure out why the generator isn't mounted down in front since there's basically nothing there but a steering rack.

That is cool as heck....... if I had that job, I'd be fired for doing burnouts from stop to stop.

I'll bet the guys on that crew fight about who gets to drive that thing every morning while they are sitting in the donut house.

Is that silver tank towards the back a propane tank? LPG Fiero?

I've seen those cars in Illinois as well. It looked to me like they had an electric angle grinder with a bristle brush fitted to it and were using it to clean the reflectors in the middle of the road. If you notice in the video they go like 50 feet then stop and lean out the drivers side with something in their hands.
