Just joined the Forum. Have a couple of modified Fieros. The 88 F50 was already done before I got it, just making some changes that suite my taste. Same with the white 87. This site has been very helpful to get the 88 running. Will add pics when I have time to figure the right way to use Imgur.

Welcome to the forum and the hobby. Myself and my wife spent an enjoyable couple days in NC this summer on our vacation road trip, where we stumbled into meeting one of my heroes, Richard Petty at his museum in Randleman.
Images are always core to our forum activities, and the PIP utility works well, if you have a windows computer. The red and blue tile at the bottom of this page will link you to it. Look forward to seeing images and more info on your Fieros.

Welcome to the forum.

You have some nice rides.

What can you tell us about your F50 ?. What kit, engine, etc.

The F50 was bought already built. It has the stock v6 with an auto. The windshield and windshield frame is from a 1989 Toyota Celica GT-S convertible. The Fiero frame was stretched to around 104.5",(real F50 101.6") the stretch was done on the cradle and on the kit body. Not sure who made the kit body or who did the work. It has a dash from the 1989 Toyota Celica GT-S but has the gauges are installed on a diamond plate. As all kits, it needs stuff, and i will and things or replace things base on my taste. Its not an F50 clone, interior/exterior is different. There is no top or side windows, it is just a roadster. I located and bought a 1989 Toyota Celica GT-S convertible top and all the molding and was planning to make a soft top like the F50 emergency soft top. I can post more pics of how it looked when I bought it and what it looks like now with the changes I have made if people want to see. I have had it since 2015 but not been able to spend much time on it.

Made some changes, new steering wheel with Ferrari horn button, had a shift gate made to fit the shaft of the auto, got the Rodney Dickman Manual Look Automatic Shifter Arm.




New seats, found a wiper arm that may work but still have to mount it and a motor, just stuck it on for mock up.

There was no trim or gaskets on the convertible frame.






Found correct trim and gaskets along with the front windshield visors and rear view mirror.

Did plastic dip blackout of tail light area and engine cover, along with some various junk yard engine covers to give it a more of a exotic car look. Still need to black out the windshield frame.

Yes, good idea. That would look much nicer IMO than the red.
