The Sunday Paper (East Bay Times) does articles on people and their cars "Me and my Car"......I sent him a pic and info on my Fiero and a few weeks later David Krumboltz came by and interviewed me and took pics of my car. Gave me a call yesterday and told me it was in the paper. So I opened my paper and sure enough.....Sadly, he somehow wrote down that I "didn't like sticks" and also that I wanted to get power steering......I understand where he got the "Don't like sticks" thing but really misinterpreted; I told him I "ordered the car with a manual even tho I had never driven a stick" "A sports car should have a manual transmission".......Anyway, here is the pic in the paper.......



I am all covered up because I have Lupus which makes me extremely sun-sensitive (Actually burned the back of my neck in 15 minutes with a fluorescent light) It also causes extreme Arthritis......Supposedly I should recover 6 months after stopping the drug (Dr. prescribed Omeprazole) that caused it.....(I am at 8 months and no improvement)

The wheels are Voxx Monzas and look really good now that I painted the centers Duplicolor Graphite which is the same color I painted my custom made "B" pillars (They were black originally with polished alum' in the very center High-lighting the OTHER lug holes) They are light also- approx' 14 lbs.

Sadly, they are not made anymore- You may be able to find some on EBAY or such...The wheels are 16 x 7 (38 mm) and the tires are 205/55-16 and 225/55-16...which were common on a lot of expensive cars back when so a lot of options for good performing tires- I am using General G-Max AS-05s, which are very good A/S tires (And lighter than most at a reasonable price.

That’s a beautiful car and your wheel/tire combo looks perfect. The proportions are just right.

I still say you should call your car “FrankenFiero”. Kit
