According to a 12/17/2009 Hemmings article, the car is a 1986 SE...
"Bob Richardson’s 1986 Pontiac Fiero SE show car was a seven year project. It is a ground up restoration and all painting was done off the car. He has over $20,000 invested, not including labor and he did 95 percent of the work himself. During the restoration he designed the rear section of the car to be easily removed. It is bolted on with wing nuts and the engine can be easily accessed by removing the rear end. The undercarriage is polished to a mirror finish. Only 200 miles on the car since the restoration was finished in 2008. The car has a 400 cubic inch Chevrolet engine that puts out 600 hp. His next project for the car is installing a 406 cubic inch turbocharged engine."
Thanks for sharing that info !
The photos I posted were in with a collection of old racing images that Louis Galano shot from Sebring and Daytona as well as other (now long gone), venues.
I remember when JimmyS and Dan first started manufacturing the "Munson" style fiberglass nose(s), so I knew the approx. vintage of the images.
Now to find Mr. Richardson.....
