I just saw a Notchie in our area with tail lights done by Driven Visions. I tried drivenvisions.com and their old tel number...both no longer there. Does anybody know if they are still in business and where? I am looking for a set of their tail lights. Here is the last contact info:

Driven Visions, Duluth
Joe Ophoven and Jenny O'Konek 6205 Grand Avenue Duluth MN 55807 218-628-3748

Sadly Joe of Driven Visons passed away at a very early age last year. I don't believe that anyone has continued the business. Joes legacy is that he designed and built what was in the opinion of many, the nicest rear light treatment ever offered for notchbacks.

Sadly Driven Visions is history. I can't that nobody lives close enough to the business to see if there's a way to get a hold all of the Fiero molds.

Try Kahines fiberglass Fiero parts. He had something close to what you're looking for your car. Try emailing him and see what happens. LMK.

I was wondering why my emails were getting returned from Driven. I was emailing him the pictures of mine after installing the wiper cowl and extractor hood. I think he was the only one who made the wiper cowl too.

Although not the same manufacturer, Al Lindsey has a nice conversion.

This looks like an exact duplicate of the Driven Visions style.
