haha, nice..


I actually really love the suspension. Inboard coilovers/pushrod systems are just so damn cool.. I should relearn solid works and design one for the Fiero...

I just thought it was cool just how similar this is to the naked Fiero. Obviously many many magnitudes superior, but the obvious similarities are cool to me.

Original Fiero windshield.



I wonder if this 355Fiero windshield will help make the Fiero look more modern, or if it has a lot to do with the fact that the windshield is angled steeper on the pillars as well as moved further forward.

I've always secretly wondered why exotic looking cars have to cost more than a house. If someone came out with a car that had the exact same stance and styling as a Lambo or Ferrari (not a clone mind you, just a really nice designed supercar look) but was $30K, I'd line up outside at midnight to buy it. Even if it had a declawed inline-4. Seriously.

Performance is great, but I've personally never pushed a car to its performance edge, and don't think I ever will.

Give me a car that looks as exotic as a Reventon or Italia and 200 hp, and I'm in.

This is why when you wreck an exotic and even dent the frame they total the car. That cannot be repaired right again after an accident.

Um, if you look you can see the front and rear cradles are removable. Bolt off the old and bolt on the new. It's usually the cost that inhibits rebuilding.
