We had that car in our shop to solve some driveability problems. The father/sons team that did the build had a blast doing it, and did a nice job overall.
It is really Mad Max-ish in person.

They built it for the sand dunes along lake Michigan. They regretted removing the back window.

With no rear fenders and those monster tires... whatever could the problem be?

Actually, it was exhaust fumes. I would put a plexiglass back window into it.

Does the 2.8 handle the sand pretty well?

This is cool I'm sort of wanting it.

They seemed to have fun with it. I would think a N* in the back would be a tad bit more exciting.....

What transmission did they use? I wouldn't think any of the available Fiero transmissions would be particularly well suited to that application

Four speed from the car, 3.65 / 1 final.
I would think the 'performance' 4.10 / 1 from an 84 would be better, but I don't know how well it would hold up.

Looks fun.

Street Legal? Maybe in Michigan...
Could have problems for licensing that in another state.
Some states will barf just because rear lights and no rear fenders. Likely have other problems depending on state.

It's missing the Yosemite Sam "back off" big rig mud flaps. Then it would be lethal legal in at least 50 states, no?

Love the spoiler on top. It might actually do something up there.

Yeah, there are some sharp edges.

Is that what's meant by 'edgy' design?

It creates a better vacuum below it that is filled by exhaust gas.....making the driver unhappy, and maybe a little sick.....(but it does look good)

Lol. Yes all the used gases swirl around back there. I forgot about the rear window getting dirty from engine stuff until I went on my first road trip with the new car. Then I thought to myself, oh yeah. I remember now.
