Did you buy it from him, or are you just posting pics?

Nah. Just lost my password and changed ISPs about a hundred years ago and I got no response from the mods when I asked them to fix the account, so I made a new one. I'll never sell the car :)

This is an Automoda conversion owned by a friend of mine.








It's powered by an SD4.


All that I/we really know about the car is that it's an Automoda conversion, built on an 84 frame. It has Fittipaldi wheels, the SD4 and a Getrag 5 speed.
It was purchased from Sonic50s father, who lives in North Atlanta. Has like 22,000 miles on it, and is generally pristine.

If anyone has any more info/history about the car, we'd certainly appreciate it.

Oh wow! Is that red Automoda Super Duty the one that was converted by Bob Northrup many years ago? If so, I painted that car. It was painted with the panels off, and it was cut and buffed, so it was really a sweet paint job. Back then it had an 84 nose, though. Full leather interior, and a lot of little touches. Seems like he even tweaked the instrument panel. Nicely detailed engine with some custom work, too. Red wrinkle-painted fancy valve cover and whatnot.

I have wondered where that car ended up! He sold it for 10K ish to raise money for a move -- You see, his wife had a glorious opportunity to run her own Tupperware distributorship in the Michigan area. Turns out it was up for grabs because everyone there was a ***** and it all fell apart. Dude lost his just-completed car for nothing. Lesson of the day, folks: Dont let a girl come between you and your car. This is the car that made me want to get my own kit.

That car was in a sportscar magazine. I have no idea if I still have a copy. Frankly I liked it more with the 84 nose. Looked more 80s Ferrari.

Thanks for the info!
All I know about the car is posted in this thread.
The car is very nice inside, too. It has brown leather (I think perforated, but I'm not sure) upholstery. There are some switches or power sockets or something in the right side of the aux gauge pod, since the oil pressure gauge is in the tach. It also has a 1.5 DIN JVC head unit with cassette and EQ. (I had the same unit in my 88 Firebird. VERY nice unit for its time.) Maybe that will help you to recognize the car, or help you to determine if it is actually a different one.
The paint is very nice. Actually looks nicer than factory. It wouldn't surprise me if it had been done "panel off".
You might be correct about the 84 front bumper, since it still has the bumperpad rear cover on it.

The new owner is a body man, and is very good. He's also owned probably 90 Fieros over the years.

One more question about the red car...
Would you happen to know where the red came from? Manufacturer or even the paint code?

Thanks!

Oh, now THAT makes more sense! I didn't figure you'd ever get rid of that thing!

just doing the ocassional stumble through. here's mine



a pic from several years back. it's buried in the garage right now.

it's been sitting a good while due to a priority and interest change, wasn't quite my plan, but I've been making two vehicle payments the last 4 years. just paid one off, so I'm hoping to get back to fieros maybe next spring or so.

edit: meant to add I don't have any papers on it handy at the moment and I can't get to the front windshield to see the vin (yes it's THAT buried). i'll add it to the registry when I can.

"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "otherwise you wouldn't have come here."
