We had a few fieros in attendence today at the Strathroy turkey festival car show. ......and don't tell me you've never heard of Strathroy. :0
I always like checking out pics here, so figured I'd post a few.

A couple of us meeting ahead of time.


At the show:
One of the nicer stock 85GT's you'll see.


An awesome northstar powered fiero:


And myself


The engines:
2.8


The northstar


3800SC (I know, I need some detailing


Lots of other cars as well:









Anyone wants to chime in with more small town show pictures..... thats what I'm hoping for.

Thanks for sharing.

I've always liked "Small Town" shows, the atmosphere is a lot more friendly, and a lot of times some really special cars show up.

Thats an '85 GT. if you mean the fiero.

...unless you're reffering to the Bugatti. ...not too familiar with those myself. Neat though.

It's a "Replica Kit" of a 1937 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic. Originals are very rare and command a very high price.

Not going to argue with the owner, but I checked photo's of Originals in a 3 years time period they were produced, there are noticeable differences between his car and Production Model photo's. When comparing his to Kit Cars of that model, his more closely resembles lines on the Kits offered.

Keep in mind that if it's Original, if would fetch over $5,000,000.00 at Auction if it can be documented. Last Original Auctioned went for $8 Million. Now normally you would not see this type of car at a Small Town Car Show, parked on the street, with no poles and tapes around it. But this is a crazy World, so anything is possible.

Either way, there were at least 3 cars at the show I'd rather have. I wouldn't want that car.

OK I'm going with you cuz while that was a nice car there were a few obvious issues with finish quality and there ain't no way that was a seven figure car
