We had to pull off of this car for a little time while we worked on stuff for customers.

We're finishing up on the bodywork & hope to have it in primer soon.

I'll post a few pics of it tonight.

Holy crap! Is your car a turbo Vette 350 swap?! How long did that take? Also, if you don't mind, how much did all of the engine, swap, parts, and everything neccesary cost? PM me the price if you feel more comfortable with that.

Back to the feature presentation!

that notchie widebody plus chop top is just about what i want - except i think i want fender flares, too.

i bought my 85 gt for $600 from a kid on craigslist. the interior is perfect. exterior is descent. the engine seems great. i had to replace the battery and align the rear right wheel and now it's just fine lol. i checked the nada book today and it says moderate condition is worth $2750... well actually it was the middle column - i don't know if that was for 'moderate condition.'

Anyway...

Here is the ad for the one that I bought. http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/1935043997.html - He originally had it up for $1500 and it progressed lower... And I got it for 6 bones because it swayed even at 20 miles per hour so I said I felt uncomfortable gambling more money than $600 since I couldn't test it out at higher speeds... Seriously like 2 hours of tinkering on that rear right wheel... :-0

GADjet,
they are "stern wheels" found them on the web, rears are going to require an adapter as i will be using a 5x114.3 with a 25 mm offset of a 5x120 with a 15mm offset.

Very nice !

Just a recommendation though, i might go at least 19 in the rear. I am afraid the 18's are going to look tiny under the widebody. MotorTV has 19's on his red notchie widebody and they look absolutely perfect.

This is pretty scary. I had never seen this car, and don't even know who it belongs to, when I drew the logo for this year's Coast Run. This is the first time I have ever even looked at this thread. That is just spooky. The angle is not quite the same but it is pretty dang close.

I think you've seen this one before thou. It's chop top #13. LeRoy in AZ used to drive it to several shows in CA. It used to be primer gray.

Yep, guess I have seen it before. Wow! The red does it good! I haven't heard from LeRoy in a few years. Those aren't AZ plates on the red car. Did he move or sell it?

This is the picture that I used for inspiration for the logo. It is from the Coast Run three years ago I think.

Tony,
i was thinking about doing the 18 / 19 stagger or 19's all around but wasn't sure if the 19's would look too big. they come in both sizes.
thanks for the heads up, i may just go 19's.

That video leaves a lot to be desired! That has to be my favorite Fiero by far. At least until another choptop widebody with an LT1 without a spoiler comes along, with the Perfoect Union's wheels comes along Then, I don't think I'm going to need anything else.
