I think my Fiero GT will probably be the last car I build unless I get another one to add to the collection. Before I found the Fiero GT tho I used to be heavy into four wheeling and had several heavily modified Suzuki Samurai offroad/onroad builds. These little trucks are lots of fun and can go about anywhere and the best part is they are cheap to build and cheap to run. I kinda miss my zuk actually but when I get into the fiero and pop the top to go for a sporty ride I quickly forget about it. The only bummer about the samurai is that they are not very comfortable to ride in and they do not have a lot of horsepower, of course a well build suspension and SPring over lift with a Transfercase reduction can sure make it better. I used to have a nice Jeep Wrangler and a Fullsize Ford Bronco both lifted with offroad suspension and mudders and I gotta say that the samurai was the most fun and in a lot of ways the most capable of the three trucks I have wheeled in. Here is a rather nice example....
WHAT !!!!! This site is for DIE HARD FIERO ENTHUISTS, and owners...We are not, and never will be "done" with our Fiero's. Their part of US ! So, with all due respect to you, if you're done with your Fiero, be done with this site. But I bet you'll be sorry you did both in the future.
Oh, I'm sorry. There are other cars out there that interest people. The Fiero is my first choice, but having a family makes it hard to drive it all the time .

I have two other "projects" both are long term basically. I have a 1948 chrysler windsor that needs restored that has been in my family since new,got it after my grandpa died to restore with my son and give to him(he's 5 now) And I have been collecting parts for my dream truck for a couple years,at the point where I need to send the body to be channeled over the frame a couple inches and begin putting together the engine. When finished it will be a 92 yukon AWD turbo vortec 350 with custom built injection using LS6 corvette electronics,pcm and sensor stuffs. Got everything to start putting the engine together now cept the cam,valve springs and a few other unnotables. The rear cargo area has been turned into a convertible,and the interior is getting sheetmetaled. It has a 2in suspension drop all around,and will get an additional 2in channel to bring the center of gravity down a bit more over the frame and set the fenders on top of some lightweight 18's.
Will get back to the yukon when i'm finished with the 88gt TGP engine swap,yukon is a money pit as I am doing it right with the good parts. Currently just looks like a parts truck laying in my yard though,stripped down to cab/frame almost ready for chop shop. I need more time and money!!
