Well on the date of 8/5//2010 I bought The_stickman2's 84 DGP IMSA. im very proud to own this car and i have no intention of changing anything about it except reparing and restoring what is needed on it. Right now the engine is a basic tired 2.5 iron duke that will be comming out within the next couple of days As of right now i want to put a caddy 4.9 into it so it will run under its own power and have a little bit of omf to it when out driving. Eventualy i plan to restore it to itsd original glory with an SD4 but for right now i just want my new baby on the road.

This thread will docment my endevor to bringing this car back to its formar glory
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Threads about the car/repairs

the day i got it
//www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/082169.html
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As of lateley a few members have helped me out wioth a couple nthings on the IMSA and i beleave some thanks are in order so this section will be to say thanks to all that have helped me throughout this whole project

1st would be neil. Thank you for the car i fel in love with the car a year ago when i 1st saw it and still love it as much to this day.

IMSA GT-Adam- for helping me with information on the purchase of my IMSA and for working on a really nice set of taillights for it. And for being an all around great friend to me over this forum.

Foxgap fiero-Mark Thank you for the 84 Decklid and the 85+ decklid to play around with.

Katatak For providing me with info on the 4.9 swap and offering me information as i get into the swap

fieroseverywhere- For information on the 4.9 swap

17car- For the getrag shifter cable.. i owe you big time man.
Some pics of as it sits right now

Pete 2M4- For the 84 Decklid delete plates. Thanks pete. its getting really hard to find them.




This is the extent of the body damage to it.. Stickman repaird it and did a great job on it. I'm going to find a body shop to blend it to its original color so i dont have to repaint the car as the paint job on it looks really nice

Hater. I made it hoping it will get into the construstion zone.

Today i had to pull the original engine wiring harness because the owner befor niel messed with it to install a bosh fuel injection system and insted of reparing it and putting it back in id rather just get a new one.

I'm sure if you keep it going long enough, and don't make 20 other threads every time you do something, it will end up in the destruction err I mean construction zone... Good Luck with it

So if i do another duke for the time being i need a new engine wiring harness and duke.... Hulki if your daughters car dosent start one day and just happens to be missing an engine and wiring harness.... dont look my way




another thing i found interesting on this.. look how Air is directed towards the radiator.. Niel pointed this out to me

Howdy pontiackid,

I have a car just like that! only the color is different and I ain't got that thing on top of the deck lid stickin over the roof!!
But it has a V8 in it. The PO said that it was a "special car" maybe a twin to yours? Post what you know of these cars, I will be watching this thread closely. How big are them tires? I think mine is 265 50 on 15x9 rims
I ain't got a camera, and the neighbor kid seems not to want to take one for me. i will try to get something to show you I am not lieing about it.
Right now the chickens are hanging out on it, till I can work on it. ( it IS covered up and in the barn, not in the yard)

nice looking car. good luck with the build and i hope you fix her up and drive/keep it. Seems the popular vote is 10 months and back on CL but i'm on your side. If it were me, i'd hunt CL. I've seen several running 4cyl, 4 spd cars being parted out for next to nothing. grab one, yank the whole drivetrain, slap it in that and go! Ya it'd be a Duke with xxx-miles but if it's running/driving it's alive and if it's alive it way more valuable to you than one sitting in the garage waiting. TRUST ME, going way slow is way better than not going at all. I've got a 220HP 3.4 on a STAND....sure its great but I'd rather a 4 banger in the car so i could drive it

Good luck with Neils former car. I've known Neil since the mid 1990's and he and his wife Dawn are super nice folks. Its unfortunate that a health issue has forced Neil out of the work world and car hobby. He really put lots of work into this car as that was his pride and joy. Its sad when you see nice people leave the hobby but as they say nothing is forever. Great car to have and good luck with it.

PK? The Crowned Prince? More like the "Court Jester".......lol Sorry PK I could not resist! I mean after all, a PK thread would be boring without a few jabs tossed your direction.

I was roaming around the junk yard today and there are a lot of Ecotecs in there - was thinking of your new ride with each hood I opened - found a Solstice with the Turboed Ecotec - it would be nice but this was was burned to a crisp - what a shame. IMHO - as I said in another thread about this car, it needs something trick/high tech - the 4.9 just does not fit with this car. Think Truboed Ecotec - or Supercharged Ecotec - either one of these will stomp the 4.9. Again, just my opinion...... What size are the rims and tires - front and back?

I was roaming around the junk yard today and there are a lot of Ecotecs in there - was thinking of your new ride with each hood I opened - found a Solstice with the Turboed Ecotec - it would be nice but this was was burned to a crisp - what a shame. IMHO - as I said in another thread about this car, it needs something trick/high tech - the 4.9 just does not fit with this car. Think Truboed Ecotec - or Supercharged Ecotec - either one of these will stomp the 4.9. Again, just my opinion...... What size are the rims and tires - front and back?

Pat

Lol its no problem
I'm still in the woods on the engine... somthing about this car really makes me want to put a 4.9 V8 into it. (i really want the V8 rumble out of it) I might have a couple of questions for you if i go that rout as well

I always loved the IMSA look,

Back in the mid-seventies, Hot Rod magazine frequently published hand drawn concept cars by Kenny Youngblood.
Everything from El Camino's to Vega's and Chevettes.

Yours will look terrific when you finish it up right.

He doesn't want you to modify the car all crazy right, stock. Play that card the sd is what belongs in the car stock. You need to learn how to use logic and twist an opposing argument to your benefit pk.
