Drool buckets ready ??




a comparison:





57.1 bore with cut outs for less weight.

A Visual walk-around:

Due to the 88 the MadArch Notchback Wide Body will be made to wheels.

Glad this car went to a good home, I wasn't really a fan of it's styling, but now it looks like it's going to be my new favorite notchback.

Auto Meter install:





Alternator belt installed:





1999 Ferrari F550 mirrors: Similar if not the same as the F360. Near perfect with a minor scratch on the drivers mirror edge. Truthfully I don't know how these mirrors were over looked on Ebay. The F360 are nearly $900 clams. These were $334 each.








A few minor modification to get MadSpeed up and running.





Koni's on all corners with coil-overs in the rear. The suspension is pretty much really to roll.





A few minor issues: leaks and connections.





A/C unit installed, but no P/S unit.





New select cable:

Is it just me, or was that car neglected for some time... it doesn't really look as pristine as the old pictures I remember of it.

Yes, the car has been sitting neglected for several years, if that helps with your question.

Don't worry, it will soon be better than ever.

The MadSpeed car is being prepared to be transported to V8Archie's, from California, where the original owner resided.

Also, the lap top still needs the 1995 window uploaded.

I'm sorry, I hate to poop on a party, especially after so many people have said great things about them, but I can't get past those headlights.
This car is beautiful. Everything about it....except those headlights.
To me they just look too kit-carish.
To my eyes they are out of place with the rest of the car and look tacky.

I don't men to be that guy, but I would make some serious changes here.

He floored it headed at a fence, slammed on the brakes, and plowed into the fence, if he even knew how to drive a Fiero he would of let off the brake and the car would have turned, he had PLENTY of room. He blamed it on armor all'ing his tread.

Those front ends do crack easy, if it had been a Fiero front end, prob no damage would have happened, mabey some paint scuffing.
I would hate to see one in a real crash, the front end would probably explode in tons of pieces. Bumpers are flexible for a reason.

If you like them that much, i am sure the new owner would just give them to you as a present.

Those lights were destined for the scrapyard as soon as the title changed hands.

He is changing them out to something never ever done on a fiero, very modern, and very sharp.

Nice notchie! I dont care what the idiots say the car was sharp to begin with! I love the blue! So nice to see color. I sell new trucks and all you see from GM is Black and grey tones. So tired of the drab dark colors.

I saw it and it's perfect for the Fiero, especially wrapped in leather. IMHO I think it needs door pockets and maybe upgrade to after market gauges that can be easily cover the dated stock gauges.
