I was just looking at a celebrity "then and now" photo page, and thought it would be cool to have a thread like that here too - but then with your Fiero's before and after pictures.

So here are the rules:
  • You can only post two pictures: a "before" and "after" picture (so please don't post "in progress" pictures).
  • Optionally, you can add a single line of text (For instance a brief summary of what you did, or a link to your build thread, or whatever you like really, as long as it fits a single short sentence).
  • You are allowed to respond to a post, but keep it brief and don't include the original pictures in your quote.

I would give an example of my Fiero, but my Fiero hasn't changed much since the day I bought it. But I know there are tons of Fieros here that have undergone a complete transformation. So let's see them!

Before 9/2003 Stock 87 GT was Silver but the PO painted it white and it was pealing off in big chuncks.

After 9/2013 After a 350HO and 4T60 swap, 13" brakes and HMS suspension, full color change repaint and fi512 nose.

You ought to edit at least one pic into your post, since it is the Fiero that led you to start the forum. Right?
Just one pic of the "Fiero that started it all"?
Heck... It should be famous!

Ah... I didn't realize that.
It's done up like an 88. Monochrome body and black wheels.
Maybe I do remember you mentioning that yours was the "model". Sucks to get old.

I have to say Cliff that this is my least favorite type of thread. Everyone posts images of their cars, which is cool, but there is little to no discussion. This seems more like the "Fiero Gallery" that used to be a part of the forum. (might still be I haven't looked for it lately since it was not updated often if at all).

Maybe I would enjoy it more if everyone posted a link to their build up threads. For me it's too much of a tease to see a before and after picture with no discussion on how it came to be that way.

The funny part is she always wants to see "HER" little red car, which would be my 85 N* car..
