Not mine, but thought it was interesting. For those that have everything else Fiero related, how about a Bonneville racer, with SD4 power.

I have an STI I drove at Bonneville, can I also add several thousand to my selling price?

The SD4 is worth some money, but the fabrication on the rest of the car looks pretty 'shade tree'

I think it looks alright.....Most Bonneville racers look somewhat "Shade-tree".....They are just busy getting the speed.

On a side note- Have you guys ever seen the movie, "The World's Fastest Indian"...? Great movie with Anthony Hopkins as a New Zealander who, at >>>67<<< set the world speed record for an Indian motorcycle- which still stands today (Yes, it is a true story!) Surprisingly, it has both a real human story (Women will enjoy it) and technical stuff that had me hooked....And I dislike motorcycles! Check it out....

The Indian motorcycle movie was good as was the mini-series about Harley Davidson... and I am not a motorcycle guy.

Holy crap, I remember this car! I also still have the FOCOA magazine that featured it (4th quarter 1998). At the time, it was officially the world's fastest Fiero (fastest at Bonneville, anyway) at 147-148 MPH. I wonder how fast it goes now?

That isn't just some clapped-out jalopy. It's a piece of Fiero history.
