I recently bought this car back on October 25th, 2014 for $500USD . Originally this car was a Gold, 4 cylinder basic Fiero. Couple owners back they decided to do a v8 swap on this. Now I believe I am the third owner of this car.

Some specs:
- 1987 base model Fiero
- 4 cyl converted to V8
- WAS Gold, now faded Silver on top to bottom Gold. :lol:
- 5-speed manual
- "I think" L48 350 small block V8 out of a 1972 Chevy Nova (Not the greatest 350, but mid range)
- Was dyno'd in 2007, pulls about 236hp / 278lb.ft of torque (might go with an LS or crate 350 in the future)
- Vortec heads
- Holley 4 bbl 650 carb
- Team Loco 17" wheels
- Saleen Foxbody Mustang spoiler

Exterior:

Needs a little cleaning up... but damn, good snag at that price!

Too bad it hasn't got the 5-spd Getrag, but if you don't hammer on it at every light, the Isuzu should be fine for cruising.

I heard from the guy that I bought it from that there was a swap of some kind from a Beretta to this car. I would have to look up on the list of things the owner that did the engine swap did or ordered to this car. There is a lot of things I still don't know of what was done to this car. At the moment the car sits in the garage at my parents house 26 miles away from where I live.
