Yeah I saw it & met Corbett back in '93 or '94 at the Knott's Berry Farm, Kit Car Show.
Kind of a nice car & real nice guy.
I didn't like the flat windshield but you didn't have a lot of choices back in the last Century.
The first time I talked to Adrian was in '90 or 91. He spent alot of the '80's building a Lambo 5000S kit for the VW floor pan. Reminds me what a mess the rebody industry was before the Fiero came out. At that time he was based out of Harrisburg, PA & had his Patriot done. He was moving out to Eugene, OR & then eventually ended up in CA. I lost touch with him sometime after he got to OR & before he went to CA.
I still have an original Patriot brochure that he was passing out at the show.
For the youn'ens out there brochures are what we had before before the websites on the Interweb.
There was one of these for sale on e-bay a year or two ago, listed as a Fiero prototype. At the time I assumed it was a one off that someone had customized. I'm surprised to see that it was actually a produced kit line.
It's looks a bit slow opening, but is/was cool looking for the time. Not so much for todays standards. I was just browsing you tube and while watching I said hey that looks like a Fiero tach, then the engine shot and just laughed.
Edit to add: hey archie when you stopping by the club here?

I remember this from back in the day. I think there may have only been one. I had never seen another and the MFG had had some financial issues too at several points. They were making electric cars here in Ohio for a while and I think that folded too.
the styling held up about as good as the Testarossa in other words not well.
I remember when the Probe came out it made this look like a Probe with a bad body kit.

I think everyone's hair looked like that in the 80s. Hairspray companies made a mint back then.
Yeah we are NOT morning people, weather dictates out hours, in July, we prob didn't get there untill the sun went down, and worked/played all night. Who wants to be out side in the deathray (err I mean the Vegas summer sun) Now that winter is coming we will be there more during the day. As it will be getting cold at night, you know 60 degs.
