Yesterday, Tstroud, Lambo, and I had a little informal get together. We thought we would share some video of our day.

The movie can be downloaded through a link a little farther down this page. (9+ megs)

Enjoy.

That's cool, nothing like a V8 !! Why didn't you get on the Quad 4? I would've liked to have heard it turn up. Nice video tho.

Thank you. We had a lot of fun making it.

To answer the question, we had two V8 cars at our disposal. Another reason is that it did not belong to me and out of respect for Lambo we were nice to it. Besides, it would have been anti-climactic.

The Quad 4 is a solid power plant for a lovely car. Lambo claims 35 mpg. It is paired with its original 5-speed transmission and drives excellent. This car is driving pleasure. Beating on it was not necessary for full enjoyment.

Formula88,

These were the cars in attendance. From left to right: Mine - Duke auto, Tim's - 350 Isuzu, the rest were Lambo's Quad 4, his V8 with a cryo treated TH-125 (He was worried about breaking axels not the trans) and his V6. For more in depth information we will have to wait for them to reply as I am unable remember specifics about each drive train.

Kenton, glad you had some fun. I've always liked the informal get together where you can get out and drive the cars and not worry about judging and cleaning. Just a lot more relaxed. Here's a couple more pics that I took that night.

I had a good time too and I also like the informal meets where you can go for (and give) rides.
I should have got a picture of RACE's big smile after getting two V8 rides.
Anyone notice how fast we caught up to that semi that was going 55 mph?

Who says an isuzu can't handle a V8? Mine gets treated that way almost every day and I got 4 years out of the first one and almost 2 years out of this one so far.(still counting) The Centerforce DF seems to be holding up so far too, but just barely.
Anyway, I sure am happy I get to drive a V8 fiero every day! Thanks Archie!!

Great video!!!!! I have to say that the sound of those V8s is really awsome. I like top down motoring but nothing compares with neck snapping acceleration and lots of tire smoke!

Does the Auto pull as hard as the 5-speed V8? I'm still undecided if I want to go through the trouble of converting to 5 speed when I do the swap or not. AWWSOME

The auto had about 100 more horses. It pulled hard. Lambo was only at about 3/4 throttle too. He had recently destroyed a drive-shaft and was not interested in shredding another one.
