A show in Punta Gorda at the Muscle Car Museum

Took the TDI Fiero, it was a curiosity for most those that checked it out. Got many "Cool & oh wow's" All thought, "what a good idea".

Found some other Pontiac's. Enjoy the pic's





This Pace car was owned by a good friend of mine, he passed away unexpectedly a few years ago. We used to spend hours at shows talking about our cars, he was very proud of his.


Super Duty 455 Firebird







They had row after row of Matchbox cars & larger diecast cars.












1966 Dynamic Oldsmobile w/ 455 cid. The paint was nice, the two tone was separated by a small bright red pinstripe, really set it off.



These VW's must of taken some time to do all the artwork. Looked really good in person.





Trike had some nice air brushed artwork that pops right at you.



This was interesting, A custom 1949 front & rear, was actually built on a Thunderbird. It was done wery nice, I 1st thought it was a Monte Carlo, but then saw the sign inside.




This Impala SS was so clean & fresh, you would swear it was brand new.

Liked the 455 Super Duty Firebird.
Took me a minute to figure out what was going on with that 90s T-bird. Lot a sheetmetal work there.

I kept looking at it, couldn't fugure it out, I thought it was built on a Monte Carlo , then I saw the sign inside saying Thunderbird.

Ya, the Super Duty Firebird was really sharp, looked like it was all orginal factory paint, which for silver is remarkable.

All of those conversions to look like a 49 I have seen were fiberglass rebody jobs. There is somebody in lavale that has one partially done I think is their dd.The rear though I have never seen now that must have taken some time to get that way lol.

I can see the T-Bird in it....of course I used to have that vintage T-Bird so it jumps out to me a little easier

Most were saying what a good idea, meaning to combine the fuel mileage of a TDI with the light weight of the Fiero. They said having a sporty car with the TDI made sense.

At far as the consruction of the Fiero, almost all I talked to knew of the way they were built. I've met so many people that actually worked on the production line over the years, It's pretty neat when you run across one, they can tell you stories about the factory that is not commonly known.

Sent you aa PM, hope you can edit your post to make it shorter. I'll look for an interior shot for you.
