Archie, I really like the way the deck lid vent looks, is seems to flow right out of the hood vent. As usual the work out of your shop is fantastic.

I think from this point forward, this car sets the standard for all choptops that come forth from Archie's shop especially if you're looking to modernize and update the over-all look of the Fiero.

This car needs a new number... It's no longer #13.

But at least there is a lower number than mine that isn't finished yet.

Call it, "Evolution." Starting with the radical Purple Pavement Eater to what "choptops" have evolved into; we've come a long way, baby! Who knows, even #011 could be "revitalized"...not! Ya gotta have different choptop horses in the stable. Then again, I've been known to change my mind, hehe.

#13 is a beauty...Curley you are wearing me down...maybe if you find an alernative to the HREs I might someday consider it. Nothing wrong with the HREs but they are a bit pricey.

Our friend who owns the notchback wide body will cue us in on the 3-piece OZ rim details at the CTHC/2 show. Tire Rack and [our] friend is personally handling the details. We already know that our Canadian friends has the cheaper 1-piece route @ $430 per wheel. I'm sure once you arrive at Archie's you'll succumb and join the "collective." Resistant is futile...assimilate darn it! It is your destiny, hehe.

Is it me or am I more excited than Leroy? I can't wait to see the deep black rims; I just might black out!

No! It is just hard to type when you are holding your breath for 2 weeks waiting for the wheels to arrive!

I am going without right now because I like the clean look. If I get a ticket I may go with the late model Neon or '01 Maxima marker lights.

That is a really subtle, but striking tweek to a basic mustang scoop. Very, very sharp Taz.

Do i detect a strong madcurl influence ??

Thanks! I really liked the extractor hood GT-X made for the car so it made sense to carry the design from the front backwards.

Yes, I really liked the way Curly's car looked with the wing so I decided why not...I was already so far in that one more thing wasn't gonna kill me.

Not too bad for a scratch built scoop.



Mark came over & put some primer on it today, we'll put it back together tomorrow & show you what it looks like.

Hey Leroy, six 6-days before the show; are you getting a little antsy?

I love that deck lid. You should be able to see clearly now




Hey Archie, any pics with the sail glass window installed?

Well, I heard from my wheel guy today and it is going to be close...veerryy close. He is trying to get HRE to ship on Tuesday, but more than likely it will be wednesday at the earliest. If he gets them Thursday he will mount the wheels and ship them over night to Archies the same day.
