I believe this modified rack was part of the power steering system used on the huge Zimmer Quicksilver that was a rebodied Fiero. That system used a hydraulic power steering pump. The extra weight of the Zimmer big body, chrome bumpers, the auto transmission and the load on the 2.8L engine from the PS pump must have made that car really
sluggish. Today the electric PS systems are a far better choice and I believe that I saw a system that used an F-Body rack with an electric pump at Carlisle.
