Heh. I remember that car from before it was owned by Kameo Kid, when it had the 2.8 in it.
Yes he did not built the car as a guy I believe in Cincinnati built the car originally. I was hard to miss as the original builder brought it to the Pontiac Nationals and the outside looked great but the inside looked like someone threw up Crayola's all over it. The engine also if I recall had many bolt on chrome parts that looked good but it had a lot of odd color tubing over the wires and hose that killed it. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess.
Once the engine changed started not seen it at any events here in Ohio ever since.
He posted his story and you can take it or leave it.
As for this car he sold it but it has yet to surface anywhere from the last I have heard or seen. It may be sitting in someone's garage somewhere waiting to be found again.
I feel it was just another case of he got into a project he could not do himself and had more money in the car than it was worth and it was still not right. It is something we see often not just with the Fiero but many cars.
A lesson could be learned by the car from PA that was called Un Naturally Aspirated. Getting into Turbo set up's is expensive and not for the faint of heart. There is often a lot of trail and error and if you can not do it yourself a lot of expense. I forget how much he had in that car but after a couple engines and many issues he got it right back when no one was doing that work. Then he tired of the car and sold it for a lot less than he had in it. I often wonder where that one is today. It was a nice set up once he got it worked out.
