Those are the PPG's cars. They're my favorite body styles and I love the front bumper too.

Look up forum member "Reality". He has a notchback/fastback hybrid that has the fastback GT lights but the notchback clip portion. It's a pretty slick setup.

Shawnk that is (was) Reality's car... I bought it a few years ago when he lost interest specifically for the clip.. I love the look of the notchback but hate the tailights I love the tailights on the GT but am not in love with the body..(my opinion) I have since had it reworked some ( it wouldn't fit perfectly on my car due to some damage on his that changed some deminsions slightly) and installed onto my car.
This has been a 3 yr on and off project that I can say is almost done. I have some other body work that I want done to compliment the rest of the car but the clip in my opinion has come out great. It looks stock and no one notices...which is what I was going for (the what "if " Fiero) I've been to two Fiero shows so far this year and if it wasn't pointed out not one person noticed... It's now a Fiero "GS". -Jason

Sorry the car looks a little dirty, I took these right after getting home from picking it up in MD (paint, fitting, etc..) I hadn't washed it yet and some parts have yet to be installed (sail panel emblems).

I second this, I actually want to do this same thing to my car in the future, I love the look of both combined.
Oh, and what brand are those wheels?

I got some pictures of FieroFreak's car at Carsile yesterday, hope he doesn't mind if I share them. Better yet though, I got to see the car in person.

I never knew that Reality's old rear clip ever got finished.. It looks Awesome!!! The best iteration of a Fiero that GM never built. The 85 GT should have looked that way from the start.

Pisa Corp made (or may still make) fastback conversion panel kits for notchbacks.
One thing that I have not seen so far is a choptop notchback.
As for the guy trying to do the hatchback, I believe that V8 Archie already made one. It used an unusual ventillation scheme that apparatly worked but I haven't seen the car or heard anything about it in quite a while. Anyone know where that car is right now?

FieroFreak00's car with the notchie/fastback combo makes the car seem more symmetrical to me. Notchies with the gt front look long in the front and short in the rear. FieroFreak00's car with the longer trunk balances the car out.

looks like a Porsche to me...not my style ( yet anyway ) but when you get that done...it's just going to be impressive.

In recent times, the custom aftermarket car/automobile roadwheel has become a status symbol. These wheels are often incorrectly referred to as "rims". The term "rim" is incorrect because the rim is only the outer portion of a wheel (where the tire is mounted )

This car was at Fierorama yesterday. Another approach on the "notchie-fastback" concept. It was really well done!
