Asa catching choptop fever after seeing Jim's car and having his team dive headfirst into a pair of choptop fiero widebodies.

Rear hatch kit or all fabbed up ?
And exactly where is Outlaws shop ?
Contact information for the folks ?

Thinking of taking the Pro-Street to the next level.

Thanks Exoticse!
I don't get on the computer as much as I would like. I appreciate your posting the pics from Jim's car and of ours.

An introduction is in order.
My name is Asa Wilson and I started Outlaws Rod & Custom in 2002 while still in the Navy. Originally from Amarillo, TX, spent most of my career here in Virginia Beach/Norfolk and decided to stay. I retired in 2004 after 23 years as a submarine nuke electrician and opened Outlaws full time.

We started out working mostly on Street Rods and Customs and now it has shifted more towards the Muscle car scene. I love working on Corvette's and the newer muscle cars also. We are installing an Edelbrock supercharger on a 2010 LS3 camaro SS as we speak! I have always loved Fiero's (I have had 7 or 8 of them) and after seeing Jim's 88 Choptop, knew that I had to have a choptop.

The hatchback of Archie's is not designed to be used with the choptop so after talking with him I decided to order one which was not assembled (not bonded together) so that I can modify it for the choptop. I love the look of Madcurls widebody choptop hatchback so that's what is inspiring this build. It has the 383 stroker that came out of Jim's car when he put the LS3 in. I am not really the hands on guy I used to be but will get down and dirty if I need to. Most of my day's are spent tracking down parts, speaking with customers, trying to pay the bills! I have a bunch of good guys that are great at what they do.

Anyway, stay tuned and give me a call if I can help in any way. Thanks for all the support!.

Asa

P.S. I like anything with wide tires!

This is my 2000 Corvette with 335/30-19's rear and 275/35-18's in the front on C6 Z06 wheels




This is my 67 Fastback Mustang with 335/30-18's rear and 255/40-17's in the front on Intro Pentia wheels with a Triton V-10 in the engine bay (kind of like stuffing a V8 in a Fiero right?)




And if it can't have big tires, it's got to have a big motor!
My 1973 Regatta Jet Boat with 455 olds (now removed)


with this going in (at least until I can figure out how to get it in the Fiero! LOL!)

Great to see you here Asa. Told you once the word gets out your going to become the East Coast "Fiero shop". Which is fine by me, cause your just down the street.

Thanks again Asa

I know this would be a stretch (LOL, double meaning), but if you section the car, you could probably fit that viper motor in. And then, I want one.

Nice. I love the sail window tweaking and C-pillar pull-in. If I may add. If nobody has already done so, you might want to get inside and see of you have rear view clearance using the Camero wing. IMO it might look better (slicker) if you make a groove part way in the middle for rear view visuals. This may add more "flare" and break-up the line a bit. Exoticse has a photoshop version of this idea, but still it looks good as-is.

Example:



Although, there's nothing wrong using a straight line as you have it, but cutting out a section will not only allow for rearview clearance, but will add some "flare" and throw spectators off from knowing if it's a Camero wing or wondering if the part was a one off piece. The key is to keep them guessing. My .02 cent.

Thanks Madcurl! I have been debating over that same thing. I like the look of it being tall and actually you won't be able to see out the rearview the way it is. I've tried it out. I've been thinking about either the cutout or a backup camera. Haven't made up my mind yet,

I love the photoshop which is now my background picture! (it was a corvette!)

Just got my license plates in the mail yesterday - WHTS THT

Take care!

Looking good Asa. I love the sleek look of the CT. Not sure about the spoiler, it kind of takes away from how slick it will look when done.

Keep up the great work, will be out to see you and the guys at the shop soon, we need to check on the progress.

The current Corvette ZR1 spoiler is cut down in the center. While I am sure it has something to do with aerodynamics, instead of style on the ZR1, it gives the car a different look. Very nice work. I can't wait to see the finished car.

The motor is on order.

Question ? I noticed you are using a viper v10 motor in your boat is this a marine or regular engine as a replacement how is this possible. The reason I ask is I have a 31" Bayliner with a blown 350 engine and was told that a 350 can not work in a boat , please clear this up for me as I have a new 383 sitting.

It did have a 455 Oldsmobile in it, again a regular car engine.

The only difference is the marine engines have brass freeze plugs (better corrosion resistance), marine cam (different power bands than a car) and all the accessories are rated for marine use (starter, alternator, fuel pump etc - They can't emit sparks outside the case (starter and alternator) or let fumes into the bilge (fuel pump - that's why it has that tube going up to the carb).

Any small block will fit in your application. The 383 should work fine. The only concern I would have is the cam, make sure it will work for your application. The Viper motor has tons of torque and has more than enough power for this little boat. I haven't had any problem with the motor (except running out of gas! LOL!) I also made it freshwater cooled, to protect the aluminum from any corrosion.
