Hellooooo from Las Vegas.

Yeah I saw it & met Corbett back in '93 or '94 at the Knott's Berry Farm, Kit Car Show.

Kind of a nice car & real nice guy.

I didn't like the flat windshield but you didn't have a lot of choices back in the last Century.

The first time I talked to Adrian was in '90 or 91. He spent alot of the '80's building a Lambo 5000S kit for the VW floor pan. Reminds me what a mess the rebody industry was before the Fiero came out. At that time he was based out of Harrisburg, PA & had his Patriot done. He was moving out to Eugene, OR & then eventually ended up in CA. I lost touch with him sometime after he got to OR & before he went to CA.

I still have an original Patriot brochure that he was passing out at the show.

For the youn'ens out there brochures are what we had before before the websites on the Interweb.

I wonder what ever happened to him.

Interesting. I binged it and found a kit car site. Sounds like not many if any were produced.

There was one of these for sale on e-bay a year or two ago, listed as a Fiero prototype. At the time I assumed it was a one off that someone had customized. I'm surprised to see that it was actually a produced kit line.

The hotel entrance drive that is shown in the Video looks to be the Fairmont in Newport Beach, Calif. I stayed there earlier this year, and recognized it right away when I saw the video.

It's looks a bit slow opening, but is/was cool looking for the time. Not so much for todays standards.
I was just browsing you tube and while watching I said hey that looks like a Fiero tach, then the engine shot and just laughed.


Edit to add: hey archie when you stopping by the club here?

I remember this from back in the day. I think there may have only been one. I had never seen another and the MFG had had some financial issues too at several points. They were making electric cars here in Ohio for a while and I think that folded too.

the styling held up about as good as the Testarossa in other words not well.

I remember when the Probe came out it made this look like a Probe with a bad body kit.

I drove by a couple of times back in july. But it didn't look like anyone was in.

Since I moved into this house, I've been busier than heck getting everything moved from IL to NV & unloaded.

Going to try to get out there in the next couple of weeks.

Did his hair really look like that in person?

I kind of like the style of the back of the car. A little dated perhaps, but then... so am I.

I think everyone's hair looked like that in the 80s. Hairspray companies made a mint back then.

Yeah we are NOT morning people, weather dictates out hours, in July, we prob didn't get there untill the sun went down, and worked/played all night. Who wants to be out side in the deathray (err I mean the Vegas summer sun)
Now that winter is coming we will be there more during the day. As it will be getting cold at night, you know 60 degs.

I think you're confused with the 50's. Look at music videos from the 80's... poofy hair!

Personally, I don't care for the looks much, also was unpleasantly surprised to see that 2.8!
I would rather have an SLC.

I don't know how I never saw this....

The front is nice, like he could sue GM as they stole the front end and pasted it on the C5 Corvette.

I love how he spent all that time on the interior and left the clunky Fiero gauges including the Pontiac flaw of the temp gauge pegging on startup.

Drop down headlight doors......

He. The V8 intake is what was used on the 4.9.
