Tring out a 20x12 on #011 (1987)...for fun.



No clearance so if I were to use these rims, I'd need a 8" spring and not a 10".

Passenger side Audi vent. Although the front stock dash is covered and updated with newer style vents, the area that is normally cracked, hit/beated-up corners is now reduced with more leg room while entering and exiting the Fiero.

Yeah, I remember you, Dale, Doc John, and the guy with the Lambo/Fiero. The Vegas show was very nice and good people involved in getting it together and it's Too bad there isn't another one to attend.

Your (use-to-be) convertable in the background.

Nope. No love for #011. I've been busy with the new choptop drive way.


Driving #020 widebody, I'll need to fold my mirrors in order to get in there, hehe.

Hehe. I wanted to use #015 widebody to break-in the new drive way, but I got a little excited and instead I drove the Eclipse. The drive way span is about 108" across so I shouldn't have any issues (I used a 3/4 ton truck for measurements).

As for the build; something so simple as "building a wall and laying concret" is actually a pain when dealing with various peoples. I called everybody listed in the yellow pages for hauling the excess dirt in my drive way for the last 6-weeks and nobody wanted the job; so I called the Cement company and "presto; my dirt disappeared." On Tuesday the fence will be installed and then I'll need to find a good remote controlled electrical fence opener. I can see my weekends at Lowes/Home Depot looking for the right one.

Curly do you have a shot of the new driveway from the back ? How far back does it go ?

Will you be able to pull the chopper into the driveway on the side and then close the electric fence behind it, thus securing it ?

No. Thats Part II; $500+ continued driveway project. Right now its enough room for one car, but next month or so, I'll have more concrete laid along side the brick wall. Right now I'm happy to see that the dirt was removed from my driveway. The little hill of dirt was holding #011 hostage.



Apr 29th, 2008; Door is finally up, hehe.




And with a coil-over too!


Doubled locked; At $178 bucks, the fence work was well worth it and professionally done. Now all I need a "Mighty Mule" gate opener.

Is there enough room for a cut for the F430? The exterior side doesn't give any clue if there's enough for a cut.





The backside; the 3-mounting points.

There seems to be enough room (from viewing the backside) to remove that shape angle and maybe follow part way around the single leg and then horizontally.

As you can see from this pic, I only have enough room for one car and that won't allow for the gate to be closed, so I'll need to add more concrete in the area where you see the dirt.

Its just a choptop fastback with a few minor mods.

The world of choptops have moved on since then, but I still like the old style non-wide body for some reason, but #011 maybe subject for change, hehe.

"Its just a choptop fastback with a few minor mods."

Oh Curly, you are such a kidder.
So humble and understated.

So, just out of curiosity, how much time did it take you to do those "few minor mods" ??

But seriously Curly, that car is simply stunning. A real credit to your vision, dedication, and persistance.
Stay well. With a little luck I'll see you @ the 25th Anniversary.

Sorry about that, I forgot about this thread...bump.

The time frame (seriously) was from 2000 or 2001 for the the N*, choptop, and interior till 2005 I think.
Price(s) not 100% correct, but close enough at 2000 prices.

1. N* D1S 12-14k. I got all of the extra goodies which included power sterring, after market cruise control, locking differential, duel exhaust, aluminum radiator, Caddy dash pod hook-up. Original miles on N* 17,000 miles.
2. Choptop Archie's #011 $3,800.
3. XSCustom VDC kit $1,500 installed, custom interior $1,500, and PISA rocker molded onto the ground fx.
4. Dakata Digital gauges (main set) $650 plus 5-smaller consol podes $200 or so bucks.
5. MOMO wheel $250 + 50 installed, Viper bezel & boot $150
6. HREs $6k
7. Tires $1.5k (275/30/20 rear and 235/35/19 front).
8. Fiero Stores vents $300 I think.
9. Firebird vents $40
10. Fiero Warehouse 3" wing stands $75 and front spoiler $150 I think.
11. Pisa ZR-1 rockers $320 or so bucks
12. West Coast Fiero center consol; less than $200 I think.
13. Mr. Mike's doors and sun visors $400 or so
13. Paint and custom work $3800.
14. Audi TT 2000 vents $160 bucks or so


Prior to the N* it was 1990 or 91 to 2000 which was Ryans suspension (Held now), Mr Mikes seats (only), MOMO sterring wheel, and HREs.
1. Ryans suspension $4k I think I got the bump steer kit.
2. Borbet 17" $600 a set.
3. Mr Mike's I think $400
4. 1987 Fiero $160 bucks. Yes. I got the car for nearly free! Originally was $11k, but I had disability insurance (injured) and they paid it off.


Edit: I forgot to add the Audi vents.

I got a chance to spruce-up #011 last week in time for the 4th of July. I started here up and notice many of the various blubs were blown; front turn signal, licence plate, and "PON" on the taillamp. The front turn signal plate uses a #15 hex screw and it was a pain. There's a CHP that is giving the natives a hard time about every little thing so I wanted to address this ASAP. My neighbors were peeking into the garage when I goosed the throttle and I over heard them saying something about, "Lamborghini," but he was corrected by another guy standing next to him, "Nah, it says-PONTIAC." Gotta love the stock Pontiac tailamps on fastbacks; it keeps it real.

Oh yeah, bump.

Next Tuesday I hope w/renewed license tages from DMV. Its great having a exempt Fiero . I'll try and take a few pics in and near the wind mills. This should be the last pics prior to #011 recieving a make-over. I've been taking to a Black Chrome shop to re-tweak the color of the rims. The shop is sending out a sample this week and later have HRE disassemble the rims and add a couple of inches to the outer lip.

I got a chance to take #011 out on a roll last night and boy if felt great! The kids in the neighborhood were playing in the streets as I passed bye them. Yeah, I got the usual stops with a few ooh ahhs. No time to talk, I gotta roll. Aired up the Dubs to 40 psi, got $5.00 worth of gas (tank was nearing empty) and got back on the road. I actually forgot about #020 and was enjoying he moment w/o a widebody. The 275' in the rear felt great and no worries about messing up the plastic nose. Today was a good day.

Its back in the garage now. I'll take it for a stroll on Thursday.

Yeah it does. I took #011 out for the 4th in Mojave to view the windmills 4-5 miles from Tehachapi, CA.






I had to keep my speed @55mph. CHPs are known to roam the back roads and sure enough as I was parked along side the road and CHP officer stop and chatted about #011. Sorry I didn't take any pics of the officer. He was nice guy and was trying enjoy his day at work. We talked for about 20 minutes, but was causing some issues with traffic. People started to rubber-neck; first viewing the CHP car, then #011, and then us. No doubt most speed up and down this road.


The officer thought #011 was a Lotus when I first came down the hill. Hmm, I don't know why. He was somewhat puzzled about it being a custom kit-kar by DMV.

I stopped off at the old cement company in Monolith, CA. My uncle used to work there back in the 40's or the 50s. The mountain to which cement and other products are made from is nearly blown away. You can here the explosions daily in Tehachapi, CA.



Moon Struck.


Local fireworks @21:00HR at the Air port in town, so I decided to stop by my relatives home to view them from 3-blocks away.


I manage to get #011 in the picture, hehe.


#011 back home with it's younger fat brother #015.

I initially was going to briefly install the chrome cat covers, but I got side track on the suspension (I'll get to that on Sunday). Anyway, what started off as a maybe less than 1- hr ended up being a 3-hr job. As usual the holes didn't line-up, re-drill, re-test, re-drill. Plus the little hex bolts used were a pain, but I didn't want a hack-job Home Depo flat head bolt nor the Phillips head. I ended up having to fish-out the license plate lights from behind the bumper. They've been there since it was painted back in 2002 or so. I never got a ticket, but last night a cop was behind me.


Do to the 26.6 diameter tires lifting the rear up in the air, the cats where showing. Now I have a little "bling" in the back.

I think the 19's up front provide enough clearance.

I'll have to get the original code #s from home, but its a BMW 2001 silver. Nothing really special about it, but IMO its a bit better looking than the original Fiero silver.
