Hello I was wondering if anyone had any info on White horse/Fiero specialties Countach replica called the scorpion ss. The only info I could find is off http://www.allcarindex.com/...ialties-Scorpion-SS/ . I was wondering if any one had any old pics info they can send me or ads. I know they were based out of Ohio, New Jersey and Florida from 1994-2005. And from looks of car it's a copy of abs scorpion out of uk ( auto buildup service) any info is appreciated. It also looks like they were turnkey Fiero based I have only seen 2 or 3 cars over the years.
I'm alive, but yeah don't really post anymore. I worked for and with Rich for several years but yes, he moved to Florida and I haven't heard from him since. I did fiberglass and the wiring on the replicars, and worked on Fieros that came in.
It Countach's were a custom tube frame that used the Fiero cradle and front suspension. They were a near exact replica.
Richard Francis' Whitehorse Company moved to the Jacksonville Fl area about 10 -12 years ago. I did some business with him early on and he treated me right. I was always fascinated with the Countach replicas that he built nearly from scratch. AFAIK, he started back up in FL but the venture didn't seem to last long. At this point Rich would probably be about 70 years old and my guess is that he may have retired. I may still have a one page flyer about the Scorpion replicar in my files. At one time there were a couple of owners of these cars in the area.

Thank you both for reply I own a scorpion ss aka Lamborghini Countach replica. I was hoping to find any info on cars as they are very well engineered I had found old address in Nj and phone number but was no luck I was also surprised to find out the they were called Whitehorse because they were a horse farm and bought traded and sold horses as well. I wonder if you worked on my car Joe I am glad your alive as well. I would love a copy or picture of flyer if you can email me Dennis .
If you have any pictures flyers or ads if you can email me a copy would appreciate it. Or if you want to sell any of the pictures or ads let me know. My car was a white one it would be cool if it was the same one.
I towed the white countach to Carlisle Pa for Rich, after seeing an ad in the old Fiero club monthly magazine, the first time I went to whitehouse I was shocked, an old barn with hay falling thru the ceiling. I bought allot of stock Fiero body parts from Rich to repair daily drivers. I have many pictures and info about his builds. He had a jig to build the chassis with 2x2 stock to achieve the correct wheel base and hand built his bodies. I lost contact after he moved south. If I can be of any help let me know.
