How many of you guys have driven your/a fiero with no body panels? I'm in the process of getting a 350 swapped fiero back on the road but the bodies pretty ratty, and I am a huge fan of the new Polaris slingshots. What'd you guys think? Summer fun or stupid idea?

Thanks,
Chase

I've never done nor seen anyone do it, but it would probably only be a fair weather car. For weather protection, the roof would need to be retained. There is nothing to prevent the elements from reaching the back of the inside door panels, and air pressure in the front compartment would and fender areas would probably force rainwater through any openings around the door hinges and any place a pedal push rod, cable, wiring harness or hose passes through the front firewall.

HarryT in South Carolina Baha'd a Fiero, but I think he only used it for off-road playing. He's on this forum, so you might be able to contact him for pics or other info, through a PM.

I'll be in az and either way it'll only be a fair weather car as I have a Ford Ranger as a daily. I'm not worried about rain/etc. A Baja'd fiero? I'll definitely be checking that out, thanks for the tip.

Back in 2005 or 2006 FieroFarm in MO drove a panel less fiero to Fierorama. There are a few things you have to keep in place for it to be road legal, but its certainly possible.

Hmm this sounds like it may just be do able. I'm thinking oval led trailer taillights, and motorcycle street fighter headlights and turn signals up front.

I am trying to find my pictures.

But when I was restoring it, I had finally gotten it running, so decided to take it out for a rip. it had no body panels, no doors, no interior, and no sunroof.

I was sitting on a milk crate to drive it. I had my head sticking out of the sunroof. It was late December and there was snow on the ground and it was quite cold.

The kids thought I looked like Fred Flintstone driving his car.

It wasn't legal, but it sure was fun.

Paul.... you beat me to it! Todd told me that all he did was add the 2 red reflectors on the rear bumper and put on a roof panel so that he could seal the top in the rain. Otherwise completely drivable and surprisingly, still street legal (at least in MO and IL).

About 200 lbs less than stock.
