I appreciate that very much USMUCL! I consider it a very big compliment coming from someone with such a beautifully pristine Fiero as yours.

Thank you trivet. As the old saying goes, "It takes a village..." I have been fortunate to have met/worked with some very talented and dedicated individuals along the way. Many thanks go out to all the people who have helped me over the last 13 years "and counting".

Tim,

The combination of deck lid scoop and low profile spoiler really make your car look great! What scoop is that from? Mustang?

Thanks! Yes, it's from a Mustang, I bought it years ago - can't remember the year or if I got it through the Mall here or on eBay. Finally got it installed last summer, did the spoiler and side scoops at the same time. I'm VERY happy with the look.

Deck scoop is functional too - top of the deck lid is vented.

It took almost 6 months to get it running on the stock stuff, then another few months to rebuild the brakes and suspension. I spent a few months looking for a donor car for the 3800sc.
All together it was maybe 20 months to get it to where it is now.

The whole point it to show off what you've done, finished or not


Yes, could have been, but it was not, it is titled "Before and after pictures". Technically "after" does not mean "Finished or not"//// that would be considered "during"

That is NOT done by the user. Many people use different posting sites for their images, and the site itself does that.

You might be right, John.

And I don't want to hijack this thread over this issue. So, I'm addressing it in a new thread. I see you already responded.

Here is mine- I bought her new in 1985; SE V6 w/WS6 suspension & 2nd level stereo.....No other options; Weighed 2580 w/half tank of gas.

In the last 20 years I have, swapped in a 3.4 F-body long block, getrag 5 speed, 88 rear subframe/suspension plus 88 brakes all around......and some minor body mods........



1985 picture taken with film camera, and the second pic in 2015. I actually made the "B" pillars out of aluminum, and the emblem is a G6 trunk emblem- Still want to do a rear spoiler and front hood vent using defroster grill....
