the great thing about this world is that anyone can follow their passion no matter what it is.
we as car guys and gals spend a lot of money and time on our cars for the most part. some people think we are crazy to put 100k in to a fiero but if that is what you are into I say why not. I have seen people spend a lot more on a lot less IE Vegas!
my wife does not understand eather, she tells me that I will never get my money back if I sell it. I say that is not the point.
I love the things that people do to cars as far as cost who cares! if they can do it I say go for it.

"I knew it more of Archie's nut swingers trying to promote his stuff. Personally I love the Chop top Fiero but these cars are out of proportion they do not fit. The hood on that one car is just plain ugly. Please guys keep the trash on PFF were it belongs and do not pollute the good forums. "


Let's stick to the cars and not how much one spends on it.

Dude you are truly one low class ass. The next time you try to guess my finances learn how to add first, and then remember that the cost of ones toys are relative to the play ground that he plays in.

You have absolutely no class.

It's just a shame that you have to jump into good threads to try to ruin them.

Let's just ASSume that this car's value is more than any Fiero you've ever worked on or ever will work on.

Next time you build a car, why don't you start a thread with open details & hundreds of photos of the whole build & let us take potshots at you?

Maybe you should start a thread detailing your jealousy with anything & everything we've built, but you gain nothing by trying to ruin good long running threads with your jealousy.

Thanks, it is my car, I built it. I have been building Chop Tops since the early 80s started doing Fiero Chops back in 2004 when I built the first all Glass window Fiero Chop Top after it was said it could not be done. I do not post my builds here anymore. I got tiered of the kind of post I got in them, like the ones at the top of this page for just asking a question. I hope that answers your question and sorry if I offended the owner did not mean it that way.

Yes I agree looks different but not over the top. And nice to see a coupe in with all the GTs; brings back memories of the Mutt.

SORRY if I offended the original poster with my choice of words so I will rephrase the first sentence....." Dude I feel that your question is in poor taste, and if I want the price tag to be public knowledge I will post it. "

F355spider, let's keep it real, with your history with Archie and your public opinion of my car on other forums it's only natural for me to question your true intent. This may not satisfy your desire for an apology but under the circumstances this is as close as it gets.

Great work Car-lo is doing. Like I've said many times, you don't need a replica when you use your own imagination using a Fiero body panels.

I've been driving #011 around and despite it being around for some time now it still receives a few looks. I was getting some gas a young couple in a blue Sion kept circling my car while I was inside the store. I came out a few minutes later and they showed up again asking questions about the car. Apparently his g/f thought the car was Lotus, but her b/f said, "No it's a Fiero."

Anyway, they hadn't seen the car before and wondered what type of engine and specs. I told him it's just a normal N* V8 w/o modes (nothing to write home about). While at a Star Buck’s drive through the same thing happened and the barista’s came over to the window asking questions while I waited for my drink. There wasn't a line so I talked for a few minutes. Apparently, the guy wanted a Fiero, but I forgot what happened. Anyway, he got a different car, but still longed for a Fiero.

Anyway, this week was a very good week hanging out at West Coast Fiero and finishing up some business regarding the engine valve cover. I'm glad that's done and now I cam move onto different items in the engine compartment.

It's been a while since I've gone by Orville's place, but he did send me several pictures of the build. First off, I'm liking how the window/B-piller is reshaped, the Veryon-ish side vents, and Orville re-did the head lamps lens too. Here's the pics, enjoy.

Hi Curley,
Here are some pics of my (slow) progress. I've captioned them - I hope the
explanations are clear.

Orville

Female molds for the scoops with the finished parts


The scoop fastened but not faired in


The scoop faired in


From the back


The vent and inside 1/4 panel enclosure


From the side


1/4 panel fill uninstalled


The "fluer de lis" vent


The thermo forming jig. Note the heated, sagging lexan


Jig with the lexan formed over the male mold


The successfully formed lenses


Not so successful - Bubbles, wrinkles, dimples, and cracks


The completed nacelle


Lights from the front


Lights on


What's left to do now is prepping and painting.

Car-lo moving rear pillars inward, toward inner edge of decklid, to create a larger hip/ledge.

A great improvement by moving the C-pillars inward. It gives the car a hour glass shape and increased body definition. This should the standard operation for all Fast backs especially choptops and rear glass hatchback otherwise it would like a women with no hips. I also like the upper door slants were the mirrors are and the newer side marker.

As for the bumper---- that's truly the ticket. Car-Lo gave the bumper definition by adding a upper lip to prevent the bumper from blending into the rest of the body. Now the tail lamp, rear bumper, and now the C-pillar all match and add to the over all tweakness. I must say, Car-Lo is the way to go without getting a replica and is a one-off.

The new nose is still awaiting it's turn.

IMO I'm guessing (A) would be the better of the three. Why? it matches the angle of the rocker vent. (B) too is nice but the corner is a bit too rounded? I'm not sure it will flow with the other hard angles.

Vinny


My guess it would no doubt be a one-off due to the added parts needed to match the bumber, cause there's too many variables (unless somebody is willing to perform what Car-Lo did). Car-Lo's car is truly unique and bad to the bone.

I've been driving #011 around town and on the hwy and boy... it sure feels good hearing a V8 at the nape of my neck. I received several looks and my alarm occasional going off--- due to kids getting too close in the parking lot. A few cars encircled the chopper for visuals and at Auto Zone a guy in his truck; got out to see what type of car was it. Mr. Mike's seats still have the same fresh aroma as if they were brand new. Oh yeah, ten years later--- the cold air still works. Other-than-that, I took it easy this weeks since law enforcement are on the prowl (Labor Day weekend). Drive careful, be mindful of drunk drivers, and enjoy your chop top.. cause I am!

I forgot to take pics. I guess I was too busy enjoying my chopper! I'll take a few (hopefully) this week. I need to test fit the 20x11s using the Corvette hub from Eric.

I was at the local Auto Zone looking for a 3.5" flange for my exhaust system and saw the local fast and furious kids hanging out looking for the newest HP stickers, hehe. A GXS (maybe a GS-T) with after market intake upgrades was parked. As the doors flew upward, they watched me as I got out of the car and entered the store. While there--- one of the kids over heard me asking the parts guy, "do you have one of these exhaust thingies?" The kid (thinking I was referring to my Fiero) tried to be funny by saying, " Get a GS-T."

I replied, "That's what it's for... a GS-T" Greedy 3.5" exhaust system. Well, that shut him up, hehe. Lesson learned; Just because a old guy rolls in a Fiero doesn't mean his work car is a truck.

Thank you all for participating ...
I went with #2 it compliments both side scoop and quarter panel rounding out to finish line back in (I felt comfortable with this), but if I'd known the "TOP GUNS" chosen #1 I would have chosen #1 too !
I also raised window line 3/4" to 1-3/4" flowing back and blended to rear hip.

Here is the end result...

Nice. Hey Car-Lo. What type of front nose are you going to use? If you haven't already, JimmyS in FL makes the stock Fiero nose. That might be what you need to glass the RX7 nose.

Thanks, Jimmys stock (all fiberglass) bumper would be HEAVEN to work with, no time and since I only need top piece I'm planning on using old bumper for template to join the nose
if I do it this year, if not then I'll have time for Jimmy's bumper for this winter ???
