BluDrm Update:

Going to try another set of headlights just for comparison...this set I just ordered from Rick at http://www.projectorretrofit.com/

I ordered a set of his "Original quad 60mm “Full Time Low”"


Full time low allows you to run both your lows and highs when you bright up. He highly recommend HIR bulbs in your high beams only for a perfectly balanced configuration (which I did).
This is an excellent system for foul weather driving. kit includes: two buckets, two Hella 60mm low beam projectors, two Hella 60mm high beam projectors, one dual relay harness, stainless adjusters, and instructions.
He use to Di-NOC them in Fiber Carbon and he just switched to Hydro-dipping...so they are being Hydro-dipped carbon fiber!

Can't wait to get them and install them

I always liked that car too.

Originally designed by Kenny Youngblood for the Action Jackson Movie. It was slightly redesigned & put into production as a kit or turn-key in about 1986 by Pacific Motorsports in CA.

Back in the olden days before the Interweb, people wanting to sell something had to design & publish brochures of their product & pass them or mail them out.

In my archives I have an original Brochure for this product. I scanned a copy for you.

BTW, back in '86 or '87 I went out to Pacific Motorsports & installed a L-98 engine into the red 'vert below.













Pacific Motorsports was a high end custom car shop in Anaheim. Building these kits was a small part of the shop work. When I was out there they had 7 of these Argenta's in the build process. They also had a bunch of other work including 3 original Cobras that they were refurbing for Shelby. That was actually the first time I met Shelby hisself.

Archie,

Hope you are enjoying Vegas. Very cool and thanks for sharing.
That is a piece of Fiero history I did not know and now will rename and Re-badge it correctly.

While I have your ear, I am going to need a new headliner for this one please and thank you.
Also do you have a replacement headliner for T-Tops?

I have a couple of non-sunroof headliners in stock.

I don't have a mold for the "T" top liners.

FYI, you know that the out of focus on some of the edges of a couple pics in the brochure was the way the brochure was made.

Understood...surprised they didn't use a star burst lens that was also so very popular at the time instead

It looks like they were going for the Dreamy / Fantasy photo effect..."Fulfill the Fantasy"

I just work out a deal with PFF member, Jimmy2s83, for his 1987 Pontiac Fiero SE DOHC 3.4, 5 speed Getrag transmission.

The swap was done a few years back by Ryan Gick of Sinister Performace. (DarthFiero)

Jimmy2s83 purchased it directly from him in August of 2013.

The swap was a new GM 3.4 DOHC. 0 Mile crate engine. Now the engine has roughly 20K on it since the swap. The transmission was rebuilt at the time of the swap.





Going to have Stephen Poe flip the motor and transmission with this one and my newly acquired Fiero Argenta.


I will then sell off this car with a 2.8 and repainted in the next 90 days.

Wait till she is completed and painted in that GM (2013) Flash Red...there will be no disappointments here

Since I am badge-ing and stylizing this car as a Pontiac Fiero "ReMera Edition"....I am also planning on replacing the exhaust tips in the rear with an extra set of Corvette C6 tips...adding a little dash of that GM flavor to the exterior.

Since I am badge-ing and stylizing this car as a Pontiac Fiero "ReMera Edition"....I am also planning on replacing the exhaust tips in the rear with an extra set of Corvette C6 tips...adding a little dash of that GM flavor to the exterior.



Good move, the Borla tips didn't fit the look.

Argenta UPDATE:

It is time for me to start thinking about updating the Argenta's interior.
While looking for inspiration, I found this very cool Corvette interior:


I am on working on a RED & EBONY (Red Stitching) color scheme for a G1 dash for the Argenta.

Something like this:

The gauge pods will have RED on the outer part of the pods...then EBONY on the smaller inner piece on the other side of the stitch lines (closest to the gauges themselves)

Since the Argenta is completely unmolested and even has her perfect rims that were mounted when Pacific Motorsports transformed her to an Argenta.

Since the rims are so perfect...I think I may remove them and shelf them for now (for investment sake) and put the set of 18" Chrome Motegi wheels I picked from Jimmy2s83 with his car.

They would look something like this on the car:

Wow...that picture highlights how much I need another set of C6...they will make a large difference.
